According to a newsletter from The James Altucher Report, Amazon will soon begin accepting Bitcoin, which they will officially announce as early as October 26th during their earnings conference call.
The more insider knowledge that is in stock, the more smoothly they will move and the more they will reflect the actual things that are effecting a company.
Still a speculative statement, yet Google just started, Ebay and PayPal already do, countries like Japan and Russia officially recognize bitcoin as legal payment – it really is only a matter of time before Amazon follows suit.
Amazon is “Working with financial institutions and to spur innovation and facilitate frictionless experimentation.” Sure Google accepts bitcoin, but only through their Payment Request API. They will be able to see and record every transaction.
UPDATE Since the release of this article, dozens of pingbacks originating from Switzerland, all within a second of each other spammed this article with a message that Amazon will not accept Bitcoin in the near future.
The truth is everyone will eventually accept Bitcoin, it cannot be stopped.
