Even the co-founder of Ethereum admitted that he is difficult to know what interaction technology giants are planning with cryptocurrency.
Speaking at the launch of Quartz's What Happens Next series last week, ConsenSys developer and co-founder Joseph Lubin said that on Amazon, Google, and Apple, there is no sign of important relationship with technology
"Apple seems to be largely indifferent and unconscious." Google makes investments, but it's not clear that they have a lot of activity in course, "he said." Amazon, we have not seen as much, then we'll see. "
Lubin made the comments the same week that a long-awaited conference call from Amazon has turned out to be a red herring
No mention has been made of the integration of Bitcoin, which had caused no buzzing end inside and outside the cryptocurrency ecosystem within days and even getting them
Blockchain, as always holds the promise Lubin said, with Amazon in particular apt to see the losses of a disruptive competitor.
"I could absolutely imagine a decentralized Amazon," he continued.
"We've seen the pieces, they're not all connected to each other, they're not all mature or remotely, but I could imagine an open platform of different actors with different roles
In the same interview, he put a positive spin on the concept that the value of cryptocurrency was in a "bubble", adding that he hoped it was only 39, an initial phase, with bigger and better bubbles to come.
"Of course it's a bubble.Hope it's one of a series of bigger and bigger bubbles.These bubbles attract attention, they bring value to the ecosystem. "
