Mainstream Adoption - Ebay to Support Digital Assets?At the Consensus conference in New York, Ebay's banners suggested the company is about to enter the cryptocurrency space. In a photo leaked on Telegram channel @PatronsOfTheMoon, the two banners read the following:
"Virtual Currency. it's happening on Ebay".And:
"Reach 179 million active buyers in the world's largest marketplace"The photos have caused a stir, because if eBay is readying support for virtual currencies then it would be a major breakthrough for mainstream adoption. Bitcoin would be opened up to a network of potentially 180 million buyers. But don't get too excited just yet. The company has yet to confirm that the posters are legitimate and hasn't made any official statement regarding its cryptocurrency plans.
