Bad news for bitcoin investors as Amazon denied the claim that it is planning to incorporate cryptocurrency as a payment option to its eCommerce business.
Bitcoin price had gone up by 14.5% following a report by London’s City A.M. newspaper that Jeff Bezos’ company will be accepting the crypto in exchange for its products.

But the eCommerce giant said the news of accepting bitcoin is false, stating that it will continue to explore the value cryptocurrency will have on Amazon shoppers.
It didn’t give a timeframe for incorporating bitcoin into its financial system, but Amazon said the following:
“Notwithstanding our interest in the space, the speculation that has ensued around our specific plans for cryptocurrencies is not true,” said a spokesperson from Amazon.
“We remain focused on exploring what this could look like for customers shopping on Amazon.”
