A job posting from Amazon suggests that the company’s web services are preparing for cryptocurrencies

The IT service management company of the leading online retailer Amazon may be considering driving the adoption of the digital asset space with its customers.

According to a job posting posted Oct. 30, the New York office of Amazon Web Services is hiring a financial services specialist who “understands the general ecosystem of cryptocurrencies and digital assets,” with a background in blockchain and technology. The company said the position will work with regulators, financial institutions and capital market operators to examine how they could benefit from the digital asset rollout.

The prospect would encourage those in senior positions at the world’s leading financial institutions to “change the way they trade digital assets,” including cryptocurrencies, central bank digital currencies, stablecoins, secured tokens, securities, asset-backed tokens and non-fungible tokens. In addition, they must have at least seven years of experience developing financial services businesses “with contact with blockchain or distributed ledger technologies”.

Amazon has already posted job vacancies that require experience in the digital assets space. In February, the online retailer announced that it was looking for a software development manager in Mexico to help launch a “new payment product” that would allow residents to purchase cryptocurrencies with cash so they could spend the currency when shopping on Amazon .

An Amazon spokesperson denied in a July report that the company would support payments with cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC), on its platform. However, they said the retailer is “focused on exploring” the possibility of adopting digital assets.
