Members of the Dogecoin community are in a joyous mood as World’s second richest man Jeff Bezos follows DOGE Co-founder, Billy Markus, on Twitter. Many believe that Bezos’s decision to follow Market could be the start of something unique for the meme-based token.
Markus, who goes by the name Shibetoshi Nakamoto on Twitter, responded with a GIF text, “Jeff Bezos, You did it.”
Several members of the DOGE community also expressed their excitement as the former Chief Executive Officer of Amazon followed Markus on Twitter.
“I hope this means we have a new member of the #dogefam,” one of the members tweeted. Another member noted that it means a lot for Doge and it will have a major impact on the crypto token.
Amazon Could Trade NFTs in The Future
Despite the impact Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have had on the mainstream, Amazon still doesn’t accept crypto on its platform. However, the retail giant made a surprising move last year that surprised everybody.
It posted a job advert that suggested it could start accepting cryptos soon. While the company has not announced anything yet about the move, the latest development suggests that Amazon could be tilting towards cryptocurrencies after all.
In a recent interview on CNBC, Andy Jazzy, the present Chief Executive Officer of Amazon, stated that he doesn’t own any Bitcoin. But he hinted that Amazon could start selling non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in the future. It does seem that Amazon could start accepting Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies if it gains more support for its acceptance from customers. A petition that urges the retail giant to accept DOGE as a payment option on Change.com has already received more than 240,000 signatures as of the time of writing.
While some notable companies in the mainstream have embraced crypto, an adoption by Amazon would be seen as very massive since it is currently the largest online retail shop in the world.
