amazon is looking for a digital currency and blockchain expert

When the value of Bitcoin, and most other cryptocurrencies along with it, suddenly jumps up from just under $30,000 to nearly $40,000, you know that either Elon Musk has tweeted again or that some potentially groundbreaking cryptocurrency news is making the headlines. This time around, it’s the latter. Insider recently noticed that Amazon’s payments acceptance and experience team has posted a job listing for a Digital Currency and Blockchain Product Lead, and journalists and cryptocurrency advocates alike have immediately started speculating if Amazon is planning to start accepting cryptocurrency payments.

“The Payments Acceptance & Experience team is seeking an experienced product leader to develop Amazon’s Digital Currency and Blockchain strategy and product roadmap,” the job listing states. “You will leverage your domain expertise in Blockchain, Distributed Ledger, Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrency to develop the case for the capabilities which should be developed, drive the overall vision and product strategy, and gain leadership buy-in and investment for new capabilities.”

According to Amazon’s qualifications requirements, the ideal candidate is someone who has at least 10 years of experience in product or program management, product marketing, business development, or technology and understands blockchain and related technologies.

Since the job listing was first noticed, Amazon has officially confirmed its validity. In May, a similar job listing was published by Apple.

Currently, Amazon doesn’t accept cryptocurrency payments, but the company’s Amazon Web Services (AWS) division does offer a managed blockchain service, allowing anyone to easily create and manage scalable blockchain networks.

Microsoft is the biggest competitor that already accepts cryptocurrency payments that Amazon currently has, and there are many other large companies across a variety of different industries doing the same. If Amazon decides to join their ranks, it would be the black swan event so many people in the cryptocurrency industry are currently waiting for.

samsung's new exynos 2200 smartphone chip comes with amd xclipse gpu

Samsung’s Exynos smartphone series of ARM-based system-on-chips (SoCs) traditionally comes with Mali GPUs, but the company’s new premium SoC is breaking this tradition by featuring an Xclipse GPU with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture.

The new GPU, together with 8 Armv9 CPU cores (1 powerful Cortex-X2 core, 3 balanced Cortex-A710 cores, and 4 efficient Cortex-A510 cores) and an upgraded neural processing unit (NPU), are supposed to enable next-level mobile gaming experiences, support camera sensors with a resolution of up to 200 MP, and generally ensure smooth performance under all circumstances.

“Built on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process, and combined with cutting-edge mobile, GPU and NPU technology, Samsung has crafted the Exynos 2200 to provide the finest experience for smartphone users” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung named its new GPU “Xclipse” to reflect the fact that it’s positioned between console and traditional mobile graphic processors. The South Korean conglomerate believes that the GPU will bring an end to the old era of mobile gaming and usher in a new era characterized by features that have until now been associated primarily with PC gaming, such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading.

According to David Wang, Senior Vice President of Radeon Technologies Group at AMD, the Xclipse GPU is the first result of multiple planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs, so fans of Samsung smartphones have a lot to look forward to in the future.

In addition to the already mentioned performance-oriented improvements, the Exynos 2200 integrates a better 5G modem capable of achieving speeds of up to 10 Gbps by utilizing both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals at the same time. The SoC’s Integrated Secure Element (iSE) can safely store cryptographic information for enhanced data security and privacy.

The Exynos 2200 is currently being mass-produced, and it’s expected that it will be one of the main selling points of the upcoming Galaxy S22 smartphone.
