The Developers Currency

Amazon has released details of its new Kindle Fire promotion called Amazon Coins which will go into effect in May of 2013. The digital coins can be applied to app purchases made in its Kindle Fire tablet ecosystem. Amazon is hoping that by employing a digital money system; it will be able to take advantage of the Android marketplace in an effort to monetize the apps.

The cost of about $0.01 per gigabyte per month could play a valuable role in saving medium-sized businesses money, especially those that are often wasting valuable space with tape-based data storage.
