Amazon has secured three new domain names related to cryptocurrency, DomainNameWire reported.
The domains are: amazonethereum.com, amazoncryptocurrency.com, amazoncryptocurrencies.com.
The domain name registrations have sparked speculation that the e-commerce giant could be preparing a move into the cryptocurrency space.
There have been some rumors of Amazon eventually accepting cryptocurrencies, but the company has never acknowledged these plans.
Amazon Pay's VP Patrick Gauthier told CNBC last month that Amazon had no plans to accept cryptocurrency “because there hasn't been much demand yet.”
The news comes as Bitcoin surged past $7000 on Thursday following news of CME's plan to launch Bitcoin futures later this year.
