The crypto-currencies of tomorrow will be sold online via ebay for more than a decade, according to the head of the global crypto-markets team at Bitfinex, which has taken over the reins from the Winklevoss brothers.
Ebay, which was once a bitcoin cash rival, has already taken over as the main online marketplace for the altcoins, according the Wall Street Journal.
In a video posted to YouTube last week, Bitfinez head of product operations, Peter Karpeles, said that he expects that by 2021, the ebay marketplace will have more than 200,000 listings for cryptocurrency-related items, including cigars, cigars, pipes, cigars and accessories.
That is expected to grow to 1.2 billion listings by the end of 2021, and it will become one of the most valuable online marketplace, the WSJ said.
In the coming years, the online marketplaces will continue to grow, as well, as they do with every aspect of the economy, including payments, according Karpels video.
He added that the platform has the ability to do more than just price, adding that the marketplace will be able to do so much more.
“We are doing more and more to help the community, to help people and build a better future for crypto and the ecosystem,” Karples said in the video.
The ebay marketplaces, which have a large amount of sellers, are likely to have a significant impact on the crypto-industry in the next few years.
Karpels said that in the future, the platform will also be able offer other types of transactions.
For example, it could allow sellers to buy goods directly from vendors on the marketplace, Karpes said.
But, he added that a major challenge is to increase the value of crypto by increasing the market.
He said that a lot of the things that will help with that are the use of the existing payment systems, the blockchain, and digital signatures, among others.
Ebay is expected, at least in the short-term, to be the main market for crypto-trading, Kampeles added.
The news comes after the Winkers, the brothers who own the Bitcoin startup, have invested in several crypto-startups.
On Friday, the Winkler brothers announced that they were launching a new bitcoin exchange, which they hope will help spur further development of bitcoin.
The Winklers said in a press release that they will continue with their Bitcoin Investment Trust and intend to invest more into bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the coming months.
The twins also announced plans to launch a bitcoin hedge fund, which will be funded by the proceeds from their Winklevii bitcoin investment trust.
The exchange will allow users to buy, sell and trade bitcoin.
It will be based on Bitfinexx, which is part of Bitstamp.
