eBay is getting ready to support digital assets and digital collectibles at least according to the new promotional adverts.
CCN notes that these have been spotted at the Consensus conference in New York and the banners present there are suggesting that eBay is about to enter the crypto space in what would be an enormous mainstream breakthrough.
Crypto mass adoption on its way
The images that have been first leaked on the Telegram channel still have to be confirmed by eBay but if these are legit that this colossal move would open up crypto to 180 million active buyers.
“The bidding marketplace may also be eying the digital collectables market, made famous by Cryptokitties in late 2017. The potential of digital collectables was made real by Ethereum, for the first time offering a platform for truly unique, one-of-a-kind digital assets,” CCN writes.
eBay is a mainstream platform for the future digital collectibles, the same online magazine reports.
Official statements are expected – Potential partnership between eBay and UTRUST
eBay has been widely linked to BTC payment gateway UTRUST. They have hired the former eBay and PayPal executive Sanja Kon as the VP of Global Partnerships in 2018.
The online magazine mentioned above notes that a partnership between UTRUST and eBay would be a logical conclusion.
“Sanja’s experience at PayPal and eBay makes her the perfect person to help UTRUST drive merchant adoption of our crypto-payments platform… We anticipate that she will be a key driver in elevating UTRUST’s brand in the crypto-commerce space and ultimately the future of online payments industry.”
We are excited to announce that we have a new team member. The former @PayPal and @eBay executive Sanja Kon joins @UTRUST, as VP of Global Partnerships.
