Ebay accepts sales in Bitcoin...
« on: April 07, 2014, 08:32:21 PM »

After PayPal recently announced a ban on everything related to trade in Bitcoin (including Casascius bitcoins and mining equipment), eBay have made a category specifically catering to sales of Bitcoin. Ebay are not, however, allowing people to pay for items in Bitcoin itself. This move seems unusual, seeing as eBay effectively owns PayPal.


It is undeniable that PayPal’s regulations have, in the past, been somewhat politically motived. An example of this is their blocking of funding to Wikileaks, which prompted numerous denial-of-service attacks from hacker groups such as Anonymous.


This contradiction of agendas between eBay and PayPal seems peculiar. Why would eBay encourage sales in Bitcoin, whilst simultaneously preventing any payments from going through their main payment processor?

A pity that eBay haven't decided to accept bitcoin in payment yet. It would be a good move on their part if they did. Same for Amazon and the like.

Obviously, bitcoin is a big contender of Paypal that's why they ban everything related to bitcoin trading. Time will come that it's too late for Amazon and Paypal to jump in bitcoin's train.
