Sumary of Ebay acquires NFT marketplace KnownOrigin:
- KnownOrigin has built up an impressive, passionate and loyal group of artists and collectors making them a perfect addition to our community of sellers and buyers.
- Ebay is the first stop for people across the globe who are searching for that perfect, hard-to-find, or unique addition to their collection and, with this acquisition, we will remain a leading site as our community is increasingly adding digital collectibles, said Jamie Iannone, CEO of Ebay.
- As a part of this, Ebay began allowing the buying and selling of NFTs in May 2021, with the acquisition of KnownOrigin venturing deeper into the sale of digital items to collectors and buyers.
- With more than twenty-five years building similar communities of passionate individuals, we are excited by the opportunity to bring a whole new audience on this journey.
