Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao Predicts Amazon Will Launch Its Own Crypto

Binance has recently been in the spotlight after revealing that both debit and credit card payments for crypto are now open. People can use Mastercard and Visa to buy crypto.

All of this is possible thanks to a partnership with Simplex, a fully-licensed financial institution that provides online payment processing solutions with zero risks for fraud.

Binance CEO predicts Amazon will ditch fiat in crypto’s favor

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao seems to have a dilemma these days. It looks like he cannot understand why every business on the Internet isn’t already accepting digital assets.

He made his thoughts known on Twitter and in a tweet, he predicted that the e-commerce giant Amazon would eventually end up launching its very won crypto.

This is not even the first time when Zhao highlighted that Amazon is a major potential adopter of digital currencies.

Back in December 2018, he said that he was waiting for Amazon to ditch fiat currencies for cryptos.

It’s also important to note that Amazon bought three cryptocurrency-related domains late last year: amazonethereum.com, amazoncryptocurrency.com, and amazoncryptocurrencies.com.

They also own amazonbitcoin.com. Amazon Web Services is also heavily invested in blockchain solutions.

Amazon resellers are caught in the trade war between the US and China

Zhao’s precision comes amidst the trade war between China and the US.

CNBC has recently reported that “Many big Amazon sellers received a notice this week from a company they rely on for international money transfers. The message from WorldFirst, which is based in London, was alarming: its U.S. business was closing immediately.”

They continued and explained that “We are writing to share some news that affects you as a US-based customer of WorldFirst,’ the email said. ‘The WorldFirst shareholders have decided to discontinue the US operations. As such, we will no longer be able to offer our products and services to you.’”

If Amazon were to use crypto, that would be a huge move towards mass adoption.
