Although the vast majority identify cryptocurrencies as investment assets, the truth is that, at least Bitcoin, was born as a payment method that would allow its users to obtain financial freedom without intermediaries and outside the traditional financial system and although many do not see In cryptocurrencies such as BTC or ETH, a viable means of paying for services, due to their high volatility, more and more companies and even governments have been accepting them to pay for products and services.
Among the platforms that have adopted, not only cryptocurrencies as a payment system, they have also opened up to other crypto derivatives, such as NFTs, is eBay, who seems to be planning to continue expanding its presence in the crypto ecosystem and Web3.0

Two years ago Jamie Lannone, CEO of eBay, stated that the company was looking at cryptocurrencies as payment options and how to integrate Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) into its platform.
Although the payment with cryptocurrencies has not yet reached the platform in its own way, but by third parties such as BitPayNFTs have been very well accepted by the platform since in May of last year it launched its first NFT collection together with Sports Illustrated and in June of the same year it decided to go further by acquiring the NFT trading platform, KnownOrigin and it is just this platform that is looking to develop.
In accordance with bitcoinnews the platform has published several vacancies focused on strengthening its NFT platform, among which are “crypto-creative lawyer” “crypto advisor“, “community manager” and “marketing campaign executive”
