eBay enters the NFT space as it announces the launch of its first-ever NFT collection. It will be launched in partnership with the web3 platform, OneOf, and will feature 3D and animated versions of many iconic athletes.
“NFTs and blockchain technology are revolutionizing the collectibles space, and are increasingly viewed as an investment opportunity for enthusiasts, Through our partnership with One Of, eBay is now making coveted NFTs more accessible to a new generation of collectors everywhere. ” -Dawn Block, the Vice President of collectibles, electronics and home at eBayBitcoinist
The NFTs are priced at $10 and they contain a 3D animation of Canadian hockey player Wayne Gretzky. The collection is supposed to include 13 limited-edition digital collectibles such as green, gold, platinum, and diamond-tier NFTs. It was launched on the Ethereum sidechain Polygon because Polygon, a layer-2 solution for Ethereum scaling, is known for its high frequency and low-value transactions.
