You may have heard of Amazon, right? One of the largest e-commerce sites in the world and one of the first to this? Owned by one of the richest men in the world? It is generally accepted that, in fact, Amazon is one of the largest companies in the world, even for good reason. Thanks to their technological development in the years & # 90 and in the early & & # 39; 00, they have made huge changes to the way we buy all products both online and in real life. Amazon has changed the shape of the commercial world. Many consider it a bad thing, but for technology enthusiasts like us, it's great.
Now, since Amazon is based on innovation after innovation, it is expected that they will continue to grow and develop. This is certainly the case when the company is now exploring blockchain technologies that have been designed to help project the side of Amazon's development into the future. Now, please, stay calm, this does not mean that Amazon will soon accept Bitcoin payments, but I imagine the option is still in play for the future.
According to recent reports, Amazon has launched two new blockchain products under the names of Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) and Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB). This news comes from an announcement made at the recent Re: Invent conference.
Second The next Web:
"The AMB service will use the open source Hyperledger fabric, perhaps we should have seen it after IBM has recently opened its development platform on Amazon Web Services, and compatibility with Ethereum is anchored in the near future."
"The Quantum Ledger database on the other hand is not a blockchain, but it is a component of the AMB that preserves the history of changes made to the data on the AMB, and Amazon also states that it can scale as needed, adding more capacity when needed and removing capacity when not in use. "
We can be sure that this is more a development designed for Amazon future-proof and therefore we will not see big changes in the standard interface of Amazon that we all see yet. As the Next Web confirms, AMB contains an option that allows cross compatibility with the Ethereum blockchain, so in the future we may see the AMB used in the development of the Ethereum dApps, although this is not yet confirmed.
It's nice to see a company that Amazon's size pushes and explores this arena. We know that they have the skills and the desire to create something truly unique outside of this and, therefore, we can not wait to see what the Amazon blockchain revolution really reserves.
