Now, it appears the tech-giant could be expanding its crypto-related team with the announcement that it is seeking a "Principal Digital Assets Specialist Bus Dev - Financial Services."

The job announcement was presented on LinkedIn:

The job description includes, helping provide services:

" they transform the way they transact digital assets (ex. cryptocurrencies, CBDCs, stable coins, security-backed tokens, asset-backed tokens and NFTs) from price discovery to execution, settlement and custody."

And moreover, crypto-related experience is key:

"You should have demonstrated experience engaging senior-level executives in past roles both externally and internally, and understands the overall cryptocurrency and digital asset ecosystem across financial services."

The latest job posting reaffirms Amazon's growing attention to digital currency, as the company has been apparently developing a new service to allow its customers to shop using digital currency. Earlier this year, Amazon posted a job application to launch a new digital payment product known as "Digital and Emerging Payments," initially planning to roll out the initiative in Mexico.
