According to eBay CEO Jamie Iannone, it was decided to add cryptocurrencies as a new payment option.
As he told CNBC: “We are expanding the types of payments we accept and we continue to look at other options such as cryptocurrencies”.
In addition, the company is considering ways to exploit sales of NFT from its platform.
Back in 2019, the future acceptance of cryptocurrencies for payments by the company was reported, but its representative rushed to deny: “Cryptocurrencies are not accepted as a means of payment on the eBay platform, nor are they part of our payment strategy.”
But since then, the cryptocurrency space has grown so much that discussions are underway to change that strategy.
However, we must mention that the first thoughts of the company, for the acceptance of cryptocurrencies, had begun to manifest back in 2013.
