E-commerce giant eBay might be considering adding support for payments in cryptocurrencies as the company wants to become the main platform that appeals to Gen Z. In an interview with TheStreet, eBay CEO, Jamie Iannone, said that the company is now managing $85 billion of volume, adding that this position gives eBay the ability "to open up new forms of payment."

"We opened up Google Pay and Apple Pay. We have a partnership with Afterpay in Australia, which is a platform that appeals to Gen Z, and that is a buy now pay later platform on the marketplace," he added.
Although Iannone did not mention cryptocurrencies, he said that on March 10 the San Jose-based company is going to "go deeper on all of these things, payments, advertising, our focus categories." He also reminded that earlier eBay changed its policies so that users could trade non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the platform.
