Amazon Denied City AM’s Rumors That The Giant Will Accept BTC Payments

Accepting BTC for purchases is a catalyst for one of the best days in the cryptocurrency market since May. Since then, the online giant has denied these rumors, causing Bitcoin to plummet by 7%. Conversely, after rumors that Amazon was preparing to accept crypto payments, the market experienced a sharp rise.
Although the online retail giant’s recent interest in blockchain is not just legitimate, as evidenced by its recent blockchain-related job vacancies, this particular rumor is not. The free London newspaper City AM reported that the source cited in the publication was anonymous.
The market seemed to react too quickly to react to events that seemed extremely unlikely in hindsight. If Amazon announces that it supports cryptocurrency, City AM is unlikely to break history. There are rumors that Amazon is preparing to accept Bitcoin and Ethereum as payment options and preparing to accept Bitcoin Cash and Cardano.
These two options seem impractical this time due to the low usage rate. The following price movement has not yet seen a sharp drop, which shows that the news from Amazon is not the only factor contributing to the recent price movement. Last weekend, after a two-month integration period, the confidence of Bitcoin and Ethereum both showed positive returns.
Support: $35207 & $30588
