The Economist and Private Superforecasting Workshop ask:
Will Amazon.com begin to accept any cryptocurrency for purchases on the US site before 1 October 2022?
Closed Oct 01, 2022 07:01AM UTC
As businesses and financial institutions explore ways to integrate cryptocurrencies (cryptos) into their operations, there are conflicting reports about whether Amazon.com is preparing to accept them for its transactions (CNBC, City A.M., Coindesk). The acceptance of stablecoins would count, but permitting crypto transactions solely for the exchange of currency, crypto, and other digital assets (e.g., NFTs) would not count.
