These listings follow the eCommerce giant’s acquisition of KnownOrigin, a digital marketplace powered by Ethereum, last June.
“KnownOrigin.io is an early Web3 pioneer, an NFT marketplace empowering a new generation of digital artists to express themselves, find an audience and earn a living from their passion. And they're looking for like-minded enthusiasts to join them in their venture,” the listing reads.
According to the job postings, the responsibilities of the Crypto Counsel will be to work with colleagues in taxes, intellectual property and security and provide guidance as KnownOrigin dives deep into Web3, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain technology.
“This could be your chance to practice ground-breaking law for an innovative and pioneering Web3 tech company! KnownOrigin and eBay seek an experienced and creative crypto attorney to join the legal team supporting eBay’s business, product, compliance and technology teams in the web3 space,” the post states.
In the past few months, eBay has been showing interest in the NFT market by dropping a collection of hockey-themed tokens with NFT company OneOf and collaborating with talent engagement platform Notable Live to introduce users to digital collectibles.
