Amazon is looking to expand its presence on the Bitcoin platform with its latest Bitcoin-branded mobile app, a move that will see it join the growing number of companies on the platform who offer Bitcoin-friendly apps.
The move comes as Amazon’s growth has been on the rise, with the company recently surpassing Facebook as the most visited website in the US.
Amazon recently announced a new app that allows users to buy and sell digital goods and services on the popular cryptocurrency platform.
The company is also working to bring more of its online products and services to the Android platform.
In the app, users can buy, sell and store digital goods, and even use the app to store cryptocurrency on their devices.
This will be the first app to allow users to purchase and sell Bitcoin-based products and Services on Amazon’s platform.
“The Amazon Coins app is the culmination of many years of development and a great fit for the growing Bitcoin community on Amazon,” said Amazon Coins CEO Mark Pincus in a statement.
“We are pleased to bring Bitcoin to Amazon’s mobile app.”
The announcement comes as other big Bitcoin companies, including Coinbase, have announced plans to allow Bitcoin users to sell their coins.
Other Bitcoin-focused companies, such as BitPay, have also started offering services in order to provide Bitcoin-related payments services.
Amazon Coins users are encouraged to use the Bitcoin app to buy or sell items with the Amazon Coins platform, and to do so on Amazon.com.
Users can also use Amazon Coins to pay for Amazon services such as shipping, payment processing, and Prime Video rentals.
“Amazon Coins is a great first step for Amazon,” Amazon Coins co-founder and CEO Matt Garza said in a video announcing the app.
“In a few years, it will be one of the largest and most popular Bitcoin apps, and we hope the Bitcoin community continues to adopt it.
As Amazon grows, so will the community for Bitcoin and the benefits that come with it.”
Amazon is the world’s second largest e-commerce retailer, after Walmart.
It currently sells products including books, apparel, and electronics, among others.
