CEO of Input Output Global and founder of the Cardano blockchain platform, Charles Hoskinson, has commented on a Twitter poll, responding to a question about whether the Amazon giant plans to ink a partnership with Cardano.
Hoskinson cannot confirm or deny any upcoming partnership
The poll was begun four days ago by a Cardano fan with 31.7K followers, Pieter Nierop. The poll asks the community about any potential or real partnership between Amazon and the largest proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain, Cardano, that may happen in the near future.
A total of 3,949 people have taken part in the voting process; 67.9% expect this partnership to occur but 32.1% believe it will not.
Charles Hoskinson's comment under the poll says that, if such a partnership is in the offing, he is not aware of it.

Amazon denies news of readying to accept Bitcoin, ADA but does seek crypto expert to hire
One of the major catalysts for the growth of the Bitcoin price and exchange rates of other coins on the crypto market was the rumor that retail e-commerce giant Amazon is getting ready to start accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Cardano's ADA later this year.
This took place on July 25 and this news, which came from an anonymous insider, pushed Bitcoin from the $33,800 area toward the $40,000 zone.
However, the following day, Amazon dispelled this allegation. The company did put up a job posting, though, saying that it seeks a digital currency and blockchain product lead.
The posting says:
The Payments Acceptance & Experience team is seeking an experienced product leader to develop Amazon's Digital Currency and Blockchain strategy and product roadmap.
