Senior vice president of eBay Americas, Scott Cutler, commented to Yahoo Finance that the e-auction juggernaut has had serious discussions about becoming the highest-profile company to accept cryptocurrency payments.

Amazon, if history is an indicator, will not be far behind.

Scott Cutler explains that,

“This is a trend that everybody is talking about, but sadly, at eBay, we don’t currently accept bitcoin as a form of payment… We’re seriously considering it as these cryptocurrencies become more of a mainstream [but] we’re not quite there yet.”

Adding eBay to the list of popular online merchants that accept bitcoin should help boost cryptocurrency stability.
