The source told the city AM:
“After experiencing cryptocurrency as a payment method for commodities for one year, we are increasingly likely to move towards tokenization. “It will then become a multi-level infrastructure where you can pay for goods and services or earn tokens through loyalty programs. “There is nothing more at the moment, but you can guarantee that the Bitcoin plan will be closely monitored, as opportunities for Amazon’s own encrypted version will be explored.”
