Coinbase Hires Former Amazon Cloud Leader Tim Wagner

Coinbase today has hired Tim Wagner, former leader at Amazon Cloud services. Big hires like this of well-known tech and finance industry leaders are always good for cryptocurrency because it brings a little more legitimacy to the industry as a whole. I also believe that there is large potential to integrate cryptocurrency payments into cloud computing services and Tim Wagner would be the best person to know how to go about doing that. It would be huge if Amazon cloud took Bitcoin as a form of payment as that would be another huge mark against the criticism that you can’t buy that much stuff for Bitcoin. Smaller VPS services like Vultr already accept Bitcoin payments and hopefully Amazon will soon follow.
