Is eBay Going to Start Accepting Cryptocurrency Payments?
The information appeared on the web that the largest US online store eBay starts accepting cryptocurrency as payment. The most probable candidate is the digital asset Binance Coin (BNB) from Binance exchange.
On Sunday, May 12, pictures of the room where the conference Consensus will be held on May 15 have emerged on Twitter. The event is sponsored by eBay that is why the company’s advertising is placed next to the escalator:
A Twitter user CRYPTO ENTHUSIAST believes that the company will add support for BNB tokens. However, his opinion is not supported by the facts.
The plans of the online store to integrate cryptocurrency became known two years ago when the vice-president of eBay Scott Cutler said in an interview with Yahoo Finance that the company is considering selling products for Bitcoin (BTC). According to some members of the crypto community, eBay will cooperate with the company UTRUST, which provides services for processing cryptocurrency payments. Sanja Kon, a former employee of PayPal and eBay, takes the post of vice-president for the global partnership of the company.
However, the phrase “Virtual Currency. It’s happening on eBay ”can relate to the “Virtual Currency” product category on eBay, which publishes sales of equipment for mining virtual currencies, contracts for the extraction of digital assets, collectible coins and much more. In this case, the ad has nothing to do with the cryptocurrency payment service.
