Insightful photos have emerged from the ongoing Consensus conference in New York. One of these photos shows an eBay ad.
On the left side of the ad is:
“Virtual currencies. Now on eBay “.
“Leaked from Consensus, eBay possibly announcing the support of cryptocurrencies on their website.” – @PatronsOfTheMoon Telegram. #share #bitcoin #cryptocurrency pic.twitter.com/xqbpdysUic

The slogan was well chosen because after the photos became public, a debate broke out in all media. Since no further details are known, the theories range from an acceptance of Bitcoin to an exclusive agreement with the Bitcoin exchange Binance.
Just a “third-party deal”?
Australian news magazine Micky noted that reality may be less exciting. It was suspected there was only a partnership with a payment platform. This could accept various cryptocurrencies for the sellers and pay them off in Fiat currencies.
That meant UTRUST. The company had won Sanja Kon in September of last year. Kon had previously been a manager on eBay and PayPal.
“It's not hard to imagine that one of the first partnerships that Kon would want to sign up is for the company in which she has been in charge for five years.”
UTRUST supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple XRP and several other cryptocurrencies. At the same time, you also offer your own crypto token with the name UTRUST (UTK).
What is PayPal and eBay about cryptocurrency?
It's important to keep in mind that PayPal has a special attitude. There they show themselves openly to the Blockchain, but has no interest in Bitcoin.
In an interview, CEO John Rainey said:
“We have teams that work well on blockchain and cryptocurrency projects. We want to participate in it in the form they will have in the future. I think it's just a little early now. “
Ebay has expressed interest for a while. There were rumors of a Bitcoin adoption in December 2017, when the cryptocurrency reached its all-time high of nearly $ 20,000.
