US trade giants – Amazon and Walmart are searching for ways to allow shoppers to pay for goods using cryptocurrencies.

Walmart (WMT) is reportedly looking for someone to develop a roadmap for digital currency. Recently Amazon, currently the biggest global retailer, found itself in the spotlight by saying it is recruiting for a similar senior position, which was entitled “Digital Currency and Blockchain Product Lead”.

The hiring announcement on Walmart’s website says that company is looking for a senior director at the company’s headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas, who will identify customer needs and translate them into product requirements.

According to the job posting, this position will be also responsible for developing the megaretailer’s “digital currency strategy and product roadmap” as well as identifying “crypto-related investment and partnerships”.

Walmart is looking for spesialist with 10+ years of product management or technology experience and “visionary leadership qualities” to develop its blockchain strategy, preferably someone possessing “significant functional knowledge of the cryptocurrency ecosystem” and an “entrepreneurial mindset”.

According to that one’s job description, the person’s responsibilities will entail “leveraging the domain expertise in Blockchain, Distributed Ledger, Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrency to develop the case for the capabilities which should be developed, drive overall vision and product strategy, and gain leadership buy-in and investment for new capabilities”.

Amazon’s spokesman, commenting on that post, said “We believe the future will be built on new technologies that enable modern, fast, and inexpensive payments, and hope to bring that future to Amazon customers as soon as possible.”

Binance has hired a former IRS criminal investigator

Meanwhile, in respect to the most talked-about newly hired crypto roles, Binance, the largest cryptocurrency trading platform in the world, has hired a former IRS criminal investigator, Greg Monahan, to oversee investigations into money laundering, according to an announcement from the company.

Monahan’s official title is announced as Global Money Laundering Reporting Officer. Probably, not coincidentally, Wu Blockchain wrote in its Twitter that “the Chinese community found that Binance resumed the registration of Chinese mobile phone numbers after suspending for two weeks”. The industry is apparently getting stronger and more legitimate by day.
