Amazon in entering blockchain
Amazon does not formally accept crypto payments right now for its products.
However, Amazon has posted numerous job offers seeking experienced developers with blockchain technology. These job postings frequently formulate speculations about how their platform is going to implement blockchain technology. Others also floated the notion of when it will start accepting crypto, or if it will create its own blockchain.
At the moment, Amazon provides a “Managed Blockchain System” that allows users to easily connect with public networks or develop flexible private networks using the popular open-source structures Hyperledger and Ethereum Fabric.
India and crypto’s connection
According to research by Triple-a, India is sitting at the top spot for a country that has the most number of crypto owners in 2021. The research shows that India has 100.7 million unique crypto owners, which is 7.3% of their total population.
In terms of cryptocurrency adoption, India is currently ranked second in the world next to Vietnam. A huge number of its billion population is digitally literate and has been involved in the crypto space since childhood. In fact, the country even has developers for blockchain projects.
The country, which just recently fined 11 crypto exchanges for tax evasion, also plans to tax cryptocurrency income at 30%. It will also levy a 1% tax deducted at source (TDS) on every crypto transaction. Contrarily, many opposed the suggested rules, saying they are too strict and restrictive. However, these events don’t have much influence on the country’s trading volumes, as more Indians are jumping into the crypto space.
