However, since the end of 2021 the team announced that Shiba Inu it would be one of the currencies that users could use to purchase products and/or services through its official application.

payments with Shiba Inu
Loved by many and hated by others, the truth is that Shiba Inu It is a project that was quite controversial at the beginning, since its responsible team decided to launch this initiative in an attempt to create what they described as “the people’s currency”. It is a token with a very low value per unit, whose premise is that it could be an asset in which anyone could invest without any type of limitation.
His proposal quickly created a buzz and people rushed to invest early. Once on the market, the token gave surprises and many of its users capitalized on gains of over 1,000% in a fairly short period of time. However, after the actions promoted by the co-founder and main developer of ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, the price of SHIB went downhill once the latter donated the funds that the creative team gave them, precisely to finance the fight against COVID-19 in India.
Since then SHIB has had good and bad times, but something positive that has happened is that certain well-known businesses began to accept digital currency for their products and services, as was the case with the cinema chain AMC Y GameSpot, while many popular exchanges opened spaces for the memecoin on their trading listings.
