Walmart is looking for a Digital and Cryptocurrency Lead.

Walmart is searching for a digital currency and cryptocurrency product lead. Walmart is the biggest retailer in the United States by total sales.

- The new position aims to offer leadership with methods to detect technology and consumer trends, according to the retailer's jobs website.

- The crypto product lead in Bentonville, Ark., will also advise on investments required to expand on those current trends.

- Driving the retail giant's digital currency strategy is one of the responsibilities of the position.

- The job will also include identifying crypto-related partnerships and investments.

- Walmart filed for a patent on a price-stable cryptocurrency two years ago, comparable to Facebook's embryonic Libra project.

- Walmart has also used distributed ledger technology for non-financial applications including monitoring medicines and food along the supply chain.

- Walmart established a finance subsidiary named Hazel earlier this year. The move showed that the big-box retailer's desire for a slice of the consumer financial pie hasn't waned since its failed effort to get a U.S. bank license in the early 2000s.
