eBay, one of the largest e-commerce platforms, recently banned one of my friends for selling a few old books on its platform. The books were simply a collection of old college books and were in no way controversial.
There was no explanation given to him for the ban, added to this, the account has been suspended permanently and cannot be restored. Despite [several communication attempts](https://twitter.com/dinoscool3/status/1316072881839898631) no explanation was given.
He has since [moved to Bitcoin](https://blog.blockonomics.co/ebay-sucks-use-bitcoin-8a9db7c88bf4) and is now selling his books on OpenBazaar.
This is yet another instance of how big corporates can freeze or ban you for no apparent reason. All the more reason to make the switch to Bitcoin.
