The acquisition, according to Wednesday’s news release, is “an important step in eBay's tech-led reimagination, ushering in a new era of digital collecting to the world's top destination for collectibles.”

KnownOrigin, which was founded in 2018 in Manchester, England, enables artists and collectors to create, buy and resell NFTs via blockchain-support transactions. Since its founding, KnownOrigin has seen significant growth as it has revolutionized the way people create, buy, and sell NFTs.

Said CEO Jamie Iannone, "eBay is the first stop for people across the globe who are searching for that perfect, hard-to-find, or unique addition to their collection and, with this acquisition, we will remain a leading site as our community is increasingly adding digital collectibles. KnownOrigin has built up an impressive, passionate and loyal group of artists and collectors making them a perfect addition to our community of sellers and buyers."

eBay's tech-led reimagination has resulted in significant upgrades to the company's technology, performance and customer experience, including tools that make it easier than ever to discover, sell or buy anything. As a part of this, eBay began allowing the buying and selling of NFTs in May 2021.

eBay shares handed back 44 cents, or 1%, to $41.85.
