Charles Hoskinson on the Possibility of a Partnership between Amazon and Cardano

Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOG who founded Cardano (ADA), has some hours ago commented on a Twitter poll that is based on whether a partnership is possible between Amazon and the world’s largest proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain, Cardano.

The poll was launched about 4 days ago by Pieter Nierop, a supposed Cardano community member. The poll asks the community about any potential partnership between Amazon and Cardano.

Is Amazon Getting Ready To Accept Top Cryptos, Including Cardano (ADA)?

Back in late July 2021, there was a rumor that the retail giant Amazon is preparing to start accepting Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Cardano (ADA) by the end of the year. The news of the likely development reportedly came from an anonymous insider. Back then, the crypto market even rode on the rumor to experience a massive gain.

Howbeit, the rumor was officially disclaimed by Amazon the following day. But there was indeed a job posting that says the company is seeking to hire a digital currency and blockchain product lead.

The job posting read as follows:

“The Payments Acceptance & Experience team is seeking an experienced product leader to develop Amazon’s Digital Currency and Blockchain strategy and product roadmap.”
