When Consensus 2019 attendees heard that eBay was preparing to accept cryptos, the news spread quickly.
However, over the course of the New York Blockchain week, their hopes were dashed. eBay flat out responded to inquiries last week, stating that cryptos aren’t accepted on its platform. Furthermore, it said accepting cryptos is not a part of its payments strategy.
Once it became clear that eBay still wasn’t ready to accept crypto, many speculated more. The speculation rumor mill ramped up due to some promotional adverts that were spotted at Consensus 2019 conference held in New York this week. CCN reported that the adverts were leaked on the Telegram channel @PatronsOfTheMoon.
