Amazon has been a constant visitor of the headlines, particularly after its founder Jeff Bezos blasted off into space. Apart from this, Amazon seemed to be making progress in the digital currency sector, and its latest job posting is a clear example of the same.
Digital currencies and blockchain technology witnessed massive growth in terms of popularity. While trying to steer towards digitalization, the world has started to adopt digital currencies as well as blockchain tech. Major firms were seen embracing this side of digitalization and Amazon jumped on the bandwagon.
In a recent job posting, Amazon revealed that it was looking for an experienced product leader to lead the blockchain, crypto, and the central bank digital currency [CBDC] sector of the e-commerce platform.

Applicants were required to traverse backward and keep in mind the needs of the customers as well as the partner. The lead would reportedly work towards developing the platform’s Digital Currency, which would include owning the vision and strategy of the product and designing the roadmap.
Elaborating on the job description, the e-commerce giant wrote,
“You will leverage your domain expertise in Blockchain, Distributed Ledger, Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrency to develop the case for the capabilities which should be developed, drive overall vision and product strategy, and gain leadership buy-in and investment for new capabilities. You will work closely with teams across Amazon including AWS to develop the roadmap including the customer experience, technical strategy and capabilities as well as the launch strategy.”
While it wasn’t confirmed if the platform would be rolling out its own digital asset, its interest in the digital currency sector could significantly boost the industry.
Back when Facebook revealed its venture into the digital asset field, several speculated that Amazon would follow suit. However, this remains unclear.
