The Dogecoin community has placed on Change.org the petition, referring to Jeff Bezos with a request to start accepting Dogecoin as payment on Amazon. The petition has already collected over 10,000 signatures.
Mark E., author of the petition, describes Amazon as a “leader in innovation” and, therefore, he should accept Dogecoin as a form of payment, because this cryptocurrency is “fast, cheap and stable”:
“Amazon.com as a leader in innovation, needs to accept Dogecoin as a form of payment. Dogecoin is the future currency, it has many advantages: speed, low fees, a large supply of coins and stable prices.”
The petition explains what Dogecoin is already used by many small business owners, nonprofit organizations, and entrepreneurs worldwide.
Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency founded on 6 December 2013, the programming enthusiasts by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus.
Both interested in cryptocurrency, but were not familiar. After the acquisition of Palmer domain dogecoin.com, he was contacted by Marcus, who even then was developing its own coins. The basis of the dogs was taken as Litecoin. The authors would like to make Dogecoin are available for all coin, given the considerable cost of Bitcoin.
After leaving Jackson Palmer in 2015, long been rumors about the death of the coin, however, thanks to the strong community and decentralization Dogs exist to this day.
At the time of writing this article collected 10538 signatures, significantly ahead of the previous application in Google Play, which was supported only by 1436 people.
Amazon currently does not accept any cryptocurrency as payment. However, you can use Amazon gift cards purchased for cryptocurrencies.
It is worth noting that all previous attempts to lure Amazon to the cryptocurrency space was not successful. In November last year, the retail conglomerate has purchased several domain names, including amazoncryptocurrencies.com, amazoncryptocurrency.com and amazonethereum.com. This event triggered rumors of a world scale that Amazon is entering the cryptocurrency on the way.
We have yet to hear any official statement regarding the company’s position in relation to cryptocurrencies. But already precisely it is known that Amazon is interested in the blockchain .
