Jamie Iannone, the CEO of eBay, is excited about the step taken by the e-commerce giant. Being aware of the direction of the global market and having a community that has expanded into collectors of digital collectables, “we will remain a leading site as our community is increasingly adding digital collectables,” she says .

And with the strong base of KnownOrigin consisting of artists and collectors, the emergence is “a perfect addition to our community of sellers and buyers” Jamie added.

For David Moore, the CEO of KnownOrigin, this is the best time to partner with an organization like eBay due to the interest shown in the NFT market. He also believes that the project will bring in more creators as well as collectors.

eBay provide services to millions of users in over 190 markets around the world, and recorded more than $87 billion of gross merchandise volume in 2021. Do you see this as a good partnership?
