E-commerce giant eBay is considering adding cryptocurrencies as a new payment option, CEO Jamie Iannone told CNBC Monday.
On top of that, the company is looking into facilitating NFT sales on its platform.
eBay was originally rumored to get into crypto back in May 2019 based on an ad at a Consensus conference. However, the gossip was quickly shut down by the company’s spokesperson:
Cryptocurrency is not accepted as a form of payment on the eBay platform, nor is it part of our payments strategy
However, at this point, it seems like crypto is already too big for the company to ignore.
