Amazon is expanding into the realm of Web3
This news comes a week after rumors that AWS’s parent company was looking to jump on Web3 through an NFT initiative of its own. The company is looking to launch a digital asset enterprise starting this spring and is busy shopping for potential partners, including layer-1 blockchains, gaming startups, and various digital asset exchanges.
With its efforts to hire top Web3 talent and explore NFT initiatives, AWS is determined to provide Web3 solutions and services. As the Web3 space continues to expand, it remains to be seen how AWS will position itself to meet the growing demand for decentralized technologies.
Amazon also intends to launch a digital asset enterprise and has been exploring potential partners in layer-1 blockchains, gaming startups, and digital asset exchanges. The company is reportedly focused on “blockchain-based gaming and related NFT applications.” Additionally, Amazon customers may be able to play cryptocurrency games and claim free NFTs for their efforts.
Internet behemoth is looking to carve a slice off the new Web3 paradigm
Web3 is considered the next iteration of the internet, and many companies are preparing for this transition. Non-fungible tokens are used to prove ownership in a decentralized network. Amazon, through its AWS, is seeking to boost its Web3 team to provide necessary solutions and services tailored for Web3 enterprises.
Amazon’s Web3 plans are expected to become clearer in April, with sources alluding to an accompanying NFT drop.
Conversely, Amazon has recently introduced its massive mainstream audience to the world of Non-Fungible Tokens through a six-part TV series called NFTMe. It showcases 50 pioneers in the NFT space across four continents, including musicians, artists, and industry professionals.
