eBay have made another NFT related move with the launch of their first collection of NFTs through a strategic partnership with OneOf, a premier green NFT platform for communities across music, sports, and lifestyle. 

Last year, eBay first announced they would be allowing NFTs to be bought and sold on the platform after recognizing that NFTs offer greater access to a broader audience of collectors and creators. Now eBay are testing the waters with the launch their own collection of non-fungible tokens.

NFTs and blockchain technology are revolutionizing the collectibles space, and are increasingly viewed as an investment opportunity for enthusiasts, Through our partnership with OneOf, eBay is now making coveted NFTs more accessible to a new generation of collectors everywhere. This builds upon our commitment to deliver high passion, high value items to the eBay community of buyers and sellers.
