Q: If a customer uses Amazon Coins to purchase my app, does that change how I am paid?

    No. Developers receive the same royalty payments regardless of what payment method is used. One Amazon Coin is worth one cent, so if an app costs $2.99 it will cost 299 Amazon Coins. Once a user purchases the app using Amazon Coins, we will pay the developer his/her share of the $2.99 in dollars.

Looks like just another prepaid credit tied to dollar and backed by Amazon. But it would be interesting to see if Amazon would be bold enough to allow free transfer/redemption to substantiate the 'virtual currency' part.

I think this thread belongs in the gift certificates subforum rather than alternate cryptocurrencies.

lol.

exactly.

You can't trade them to another person.
You can't redeem them for dollars or any other currency.
You can only use them to buy kindle apps. Not even kindle books.

Doesn't sound like a currency to me.
