Customers of e-commerce giant Amazon want to have the ability to buy a broader range of items, consisting of cryptocurrency, according to a current report released by a monetary portal Investing.com.

In the course of the study, Investing.com surveyed over 1,000 Amazon buyers in order to find buying frequency and the trust level consumers have in the business. Especially, the study polled clients on what items they are comfortable purchasing under an Amazon brand name.

When asked what type of items they feel comfortable purchasing under the Amazon brand name, 12.7 percent of the participants called cryptocurrencies. Other theoretical Amazon-branded items consisted of medical cannabis (13.5 percent), prescription drugs (9.3 percent), computer (72.9 percent), discount coupons and offers (10.6 percent) and even health care (15.3 percent). Consumers were enabled to choose more than one alternative.

The study likewise exposed that almost one in 3 participants made a regular monthly purchase on Amazon, while 43 percent of the study individuals stated they would no longer patronize shopping centers. In regard to age, Baby Boomers reacted they invest about $102.14 on Amazon every month, Generation X-ers stated they invest around $118.78, and Millennials invest about $123.49.

Today, the CEO of leading crypto exchange Binance, Changpeng Zhao, declared that Amazon can not prevent releasing its own altcoin. “For any internet (non-physical) based business, I don’t understand why anyone would not accept crypto for payments. It is easier, faster and cheaper to integration than traditional payment gateways. Less paperwork. And reaches more diverse demographic and geography,” stated Zhao.

In November 2018, Amazon revealed its 2 brand-new blockchain-related services, Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB) and Amazon Managed Blockchain. While QLDB is a journal database developed to offer transparent, immutable, and cryptographically proven log of deals, which is supervised by a main relied on authority, Managed Blockchain item is developed to run with QLDB, enabling users to change and handle a scalable blockchain network.
