The eBay trading platform has denied that it can start accepting cryptocurrencies as one of the payment methods. A company spokesman said that cryptocurrencies are not accepted as a form of payment on the platform and are not part of the eBay payment strategy.
An eBay employee gave additional explanations regarding banner ads from the Consensus 2019 conference. He confirmed their authenticity and explained the meaning:
«This announcement applies to the whole variety of goods related to virtual currencies that are presented on our platform, for example, mining equipment. We cannot say anything more about this. If something changes in the future, we will, of course, inform everyone. I know a lot of people who really like to pay with cryptocurrencies, just now they are not in our roadmap».
