The price of the most famous cryptocurrency bitcoin fell again after a short Monday climb over $ 40,000 (approximately 872,000 crowns). Amazon, the world’s largest online store, has denied reports that it intends to begin accepting bitcoin payments by the end of the year. Reuters reported.
According to the CoinDesk server, bitcoin sold for $ 37,598 shortly after 1:00 p.m. Its price has fallen by about 2.5 percent in the last 24 hours. It rose to $ 40,539.39 on Monday night. It thus exceeded the $ 40,000 mark for the first time since mid-June.
Sunday’s announcement by the London newspaper City AM that Amazon plans to start accepting bitcoin payments by the end of the year contributed to the rise in the price of bitcoin. But Amazon denied the news on Monday. “Regardless of our interest in this area, speculation about our specific plans for cryptocurrencies is not true,” the company said.
Last week, the bitcoin award was also supported by comments from Tesla boss Elon Musek and Twitter internet boss Jack Dorsey. Musk said the electric car manufacturer Tesla is most likely to start accepting bitcoin payments again. Dorsey subsequently stated that bitcoin will be an important part of Twitter’s future.
