amazon, coinbase -

Amazon is to the 21st century what Walmart was to the 20th century.  Slowly, Amazon is putting its imprint onto more and more areas of business.  Already AMZN is one of the world most valuable companies worth more than $725 billion.  Their sheer size allows them to go wherever they want.

The game isn’t over for Bitcoin yet. And neither is its price volatility, which divides cryptocurrency experts on where bitcoin price is heading next.  On one side is the bullish camp, which argues that Bitcoin is still in an uptrend, betting that it will eventually reach $30,000.
