CoinGape earlier reported that AWS had also partnered with Chainlink (LINK) for the node-creation solution. Moreover, Amazon Web Services had also tied up with public blockchain VeChainThor for blockchain-based carbon management services.
Earlier reports have also suggested that Amazon is pushing its Amazon NFT plan for launch in the next quarter. The company appears to be planning to make its customers play crypto games and reward them with free NFTs.
