Amazon is yet to accept cryptocurrency on its platform or launch its own digital token. However, some people believe that it is just a matter of time before the e-commerce giant ventures into the crypto space.

Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao, is confident that Amazon would soon enter the crypto space due to the number of benefits it offers to businesses and organizations. He expressed his thoughts in a tweet earlier this month.

He even went a step further to predict that Amazon will issue its own cryptocurrency.

If Amazon were to create its own token (probably AmazonCoin), it would provide several benefits to users. The coin could come with discounts or could unlock access to special account features. It would help reduce credit card fraud and most importantly, make it easier for regions with banking problems to have access to Amazon.
