Amazon just bought three domain names related to cryptocurrency

  • Amazon has registered three new cryptocurrency-related domains, according to trade publication DomainNameWire.
  • The domains are amazonethereum.com, amazoncryptocurrency.com, amazoncryptocurrencies.com.
  • Amazon already owns the “amazonbitcoin.com” domain name, according to Coindesk.

    Amazon has secured three new domain names related to cryptocurrency, sparking speculation that the e-commerce giant could be preparing a move into the cryptocurrency space. 

    However, Amazon Pay’s VP Patrick Gauthier told CNBC last month that Amazon had no plans to accept cryptocurrency because there hasn’t been much demand yet, and Amazon may simply be protecting its brand name.

    The domains are: amazonethereum.com, amazoncryptocurrency.com, amazoncryptocurrencies.com.
