Back in April, its number of holders comprised 1,139,000, whereas now it totals 1,167,079.
New global adoptions of SHIB
More and more businesses have started accepting Shiba Inu along with other cryptocurrencies recently. Among them, as covered by U.Today last week, is the producer of elite Swiss watches Tag Heuer.
Aside from that, SHIB will be accepted by thousands of restaurants in more than 60 countries globally thanks to a partnership between Lavu and Verifone, two payment solutions providers, the former working particularly with restaurants.
