Virtual currency: It’s happening on eBay
The bidding marketplace may also be eying the digital collectables market, made famous by Cryptokitties in late 2017. The potential of digital collectables was made real by Ethereum, for the first time offering a platform for truly unique, one-of-a-kind digital assets.
As a hub for collectable items and auctions, eBay is a natural mainstream platform for the future of digital collectables.

While there is no official statement on its crypto plans, the marketplace has been widely linked to bitcoin payment gateway UTRUST.
UTRUST hired former eBay and PayPal executive Sanja Kon as VP of Global Partnerships in 2018. So a partnership between UTRUST and eBay would be a logical conclusion.
