Bitstamp first announced that it was listing SHIB on its blog on December 8, 2021 and began allowing repositories before listing the next day. About six hours later, he delivered bad news to $SHIB fans, stating that he was experiencing technical issues that forced him to delay the launch.
Bitstamp might have been the 100th cryptocurrency trading platform to be rated SHIB, but that position ultimately went to Middle Eastern cryptocurrency trading platform Rain.
On his blog Bitstamp announced the new listing, and noted that Shiba Inu is a project “which started quite lightheartedly, with a cute dog image, but now has an incredibly large and vibrant community behind it“. The post adds:
As it grew in popularity, the Bitstamp community requested that the token be listed on our exchange. So you too can now become a proud owner of SHIBA INU and a representative of the ShibArmy. (excluding USA and Singapore at this time)
This announcement comes as Shiba Inu adoption continues to grow. Earlier this month, popular Mexican-style fast food chain Chipotle began accepting cryptocurrency payments through digital payments company Flexa, which supports around 98 currencies, including $SHIB, Chipotle is the largest Mexican restaurant chain in Mexico and the United States.
Additionally, Brazilian football club São Paulo FC has started accepting cryptocurrency payments through Latin American cryptocurrency trading platform Bitso. Among the assets it accepts are meme-inspired currencies like Dogecoin ($DOGE) and Shiba Inu.
