Ebay Looking Into Adding Cryptocurrency as Payment Option

Ebay CEO Jamie Iannone said in a CNBC interview on Monday that the company is looking at accepting cryptocurrency as a payment option.

He was asked about how Ebay is responding to the rise in popularity and adoption of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The CEO replied:

He added: “One of the great things about Ebay is that when there is a new trend, it just shows up on Ebay. That’s what we are seeing in areas like NFTs [non-fungible tokens], which we are looking at how we can explore that better.†He also noted that Ebay has “187 million buyers on the platform,†which was reported in the company’s Q1 earnings release.

Iannone was also specifically asked, “Does that mean you are getting into the NFT business?†He replied:
