BigONE View: Will Wal-Mart Enter the Cryptocurrency Field?

BigONE recently discovered that Wal-Mart, the world’s largest supermarket chain, has published a job posting to hire a person to oversee digital currency and encrypted currency products, raising concerns about the company’s cryptocurrency strategy. According to the job posting, the Wal-new Mart employee will be in charge of developing the company’s digital currency strategy and product roadmap. According to the company, it is looking for a cryptocurrency and blockchain expert who can “identify cryptocurrency-related investments and partnerships”. According to information obtained by BigONE, the advertisement was published only a few weeks after Amazon issued a similar job posting. Although Amazon later denied rumors that it was entering the cryptocurrency market, we can see that the global behemoths of the world are now paying attention to the cryptocurrency field.

Walmart and cryptocurrency

What does Walmart’s actions mean for cryptocurrency?

However, convincing people to use cryptocurrency as a digital payment method has proven difficult. Even though the number of investors attracted by many cryptocurrency exchanges continues to break records year after year, many people still regard cryptocurrency as an investment rather than a currency. The extreme price fluctuations we see in cryptocurrencies are a major reason for this. Companies must pay suppliers, employees, and rent in traditional (fiat) currencies, and accepting volatile crypto payments can also jeopardize their cash flow.

Taking cryptocurrency seriously

Indeed, the overall increase in cryptocurrency prices that we saw earlier this year occurred in the context of increased public acceptance. For example, it is widely assumed that Tesla’s investment and decision to accept Bitcoin payments contributed to its price increase. According to BigONE, the cryptocurrency industry is still in its early stages, and Walmart’s strategic plan for entering the cryptocurrency industry is clearly just starting. However, if Wal-Mart does decide to enter the cryptocurrency market, it is certain that it will promote the growth of the entire cryptocurrency industry.
