Amazon Subsidiary Registers Three Additional Cryptocurrency-Related Web Domains

Cryptocurrency
E-commerce giant Amazon has reported registered three new cryptocurrency-related web domains. Such three domains are registered under “amazonethereum.com”, “amazoncryptocurrency.com”, and “amazoncryptocurrencies.com”, on October 31st, 2017. All three are directly linked to Amazon Technologies, Inc, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc. Within the registration documents, the phone numbers listed to connect to Amazon’s legal department, through a representative of that office could not be reached by the press time. Amazon’s purpose behind the creation of these domains is unknown - although it is widely speculated that it may be simply moving to safeguard its brand. Back in 2013, Amazon secured “amazonbitcoin.com”, which currently redirects to Amazon’s main page - an arrangement that further suggests the protective intent of the registration. Additionally, Amazon may be seeking to avoid confusion between cryptocurrencies and Amazon Coin, a virtual currency product introduced in 2013 that serves as a digital payment for customers. As of today, Amazon representatives have not responded to requests for comments. Featured Image: twitter
