Shiba Inu's recent developments
As U.Today previously reported, Wirex has expanded its ecosystem to enable 4.5 million users to access Shiba Inu (SHIB). With the move, Wirex users can receive, send, store and exchange Shiba Inu tokens across its app, wallet and payment platforms.
Already, thousands of SHIB holders are applying to SHIB-Themed Restaurant Welly's to run new locations. However, a new location will only emerge as early as next year. The reason is that the Welly's team wants its business to be absolutely and easily replicable "anywhere without issues." The team of the restaurant chain is now taking the time to make that happen and fine-tune its existing locations.
As reported by U.Today, Aron recently announced that AMC would start accepting Shiba Inu and Dogecoin, the two largest meme cryptocurrencies, later this March. The cinema chain, which operates 1,004 movie theatres in 15 countries, started accepting Bitcoin and some major altcoins in November.
