Kind of a stupid move and will likely not succeed . To counter it, all Amazon or ebay has to do is start accepting bitcoins and they will win over all the customers.

They're unwilling to do that at the moment which is probably why OpenBazaar & Purse have a window of opportunity to open & become respected before Ebay & Amazon start accepting bitcoin.

I know what you're saying but many companies around the world go bust because they become complacent & don't move with the times.

When ebay started up nobody thought it would be a success. It was one of the first innovators to run auctions through a website, and that gave it first mover advantage. Now its become an established pillar of the internet it's stopped innovating. Refusing to accept Bitcoin could be its downfall, and innovators like OpenBazaar & Purse could get the first mover advantage this time and steal ebay's thunder.
