E-commerce giant Amazon is also starting to get involved in the Web3 and NFT field of the digital world. According to the news of Blockworks from the US media, the digital asset initiative to be launched by the company will include layer-1 blockchains, blockchain-based game startups and NFTs. Sources from Blockworks noted that startups will mostly be based on games and NFT.
May be announced in April
In the news, it was stated that Amazon customers can earn NFT for free by playing “crypto games”. Sources stated that Amazon is still working on the related work, a specific date for the official announcement has not been determined yet, but the announcement may come in April.
“This is a huge step”
One of the news sources speaking to the Blockworks platform stated that Amazon’s step is very big and used the following statements:
“Amazon’s involvement in this space is a huge step forward. There are many reasons for this. We’ve talked amongst ourselves about this before. We predicted that this could happen, but this time it’s actually happening. If Amazon acts smart and does the right things, this step will directly affect many players in this field.”
“NFT with a star name…”
One of the sources gave a more important detail and stated that Amazon especially attaches great importance to the NFT initiative, and that there were discussions with at least one family office a few months ago:
“The plan at that time was to issue an NFT through the use of a star name. Later on, progress on Web3 was also included in the plan”
CEO tipped last year
As it will be remembered, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy said in a program he attended last year that he thinks cryptocurrencies and NFTs will grow seriously in the future. Jassy stated that there was no Bitcoin or any crypto money investment at that time.
