The Shiba Inu [SHIB] wave seemed to have spared no one. From crypto exchanges listings to partnerships and deals with prominent firms from all across the globe, the meme coin has had an impeccable journey to the top. Despite its static price, Shiba Inu continued to bag listings and deals. However, its recent listing encountered a slight heckle.
Prominent cryptocurrency exchange, Bitstamp, recently made an announcement revealing the potential listing of the meme coin, Shiba Inu. While the coin was originally presumed to be made available on the platform on Thursday, technical difficulties delayed this listing.
The exchange took to Twitter to announce the news of the delay. The tweet read,
“We experienced some technical problems with $SHIB listing, which will result in a longer delay with the launch.
We’ll keep you posted”
Considered one of the largest crypto exchanges in the European region, Bitstamp’s SHIB listing was considered a major turning point for the meme coin.
Shiba Inu finally accepted by Newegg
After days of teasing, Newegg, America’s prominent online retail firm disclosed that Shiba Inu had finally made it to the platform. Newegg took to Twitter and dropped an array of hints throughout the last few weeks of November.
Rumors about the retail giant accepting the meme coin began surfacing following the below tweet.
Now, in its latest tweet, the platform decided to make things official. Newegg tweeted,
“We’re now accepting $SHIB. Just select @BitPay as your payment when checking out using a PC.”
Adding on to this, BitPay, one of the largest crypto payment firms decided to onboard Shiba Inu into its system.
All of the aforementioned deals and listings were great examples of Shiba Inu’s growth. Yet, with regard to its price, the altcoin was seen lagging behind. At the time of writing, SHIB was trading for $0.0000354 with a 4.03% drop in the last 24-hours. The whole week was rather challenging for the altcoin as it slumped by 20%.
