Amazon Launches ‘Amazon Coins’ In Its First Move Into Virtual Currency, Targets Apps And Games On Kindle Fire

Quote
Amazon has just announced a new virtual currency for Kindle Fire owners to use on in-app purchases, app purchases, etc. in the Amazon Appstore.

The service will launch in May, at which point Amazon will be giving away tens of millions of dollars worth of Amazon coins to customers. Users then have the choice of paying for apps or in-app purchases with their credit cards or with Amazon coins.

Woops, I was blind (again).

In this case, just let this thread die.

Let's complain.  Grin Tonight I will ask them when they will start taking BTC. I will mention that Amazon coins are not interesting to me, but any retailer that takes bitcoin will be preferred by me.

Pfft no one's going to be interested in buying this sort of thing, it's a scheme that pay to win games use often, only people with way more money than sense will ever buy into it and ultimately it will shut down or just be dead in the next couple of years.

Somehow, I missed them two, but I'll comment on this one.

Actually, this is pretty good news. It'll acclimate people away from using fiat currency to a virtual one, then they would only need to be made aware of which one in the best choice--Bitcoin.
