After two months of consideration, the leading crypto trading venue in the Middle East, Rain platform, has decided to finally kick off Shiba Inu trading, expanding the meme token's adoption and trading volume.
Meanwhile, in the past 24 hours, Shiba Inu has registered a rise by 25%.
SHIB is listed by Rain
Rain is based in Bahrain. In 2019, it was the first crypto trading platform in the Middle East to be fully licensed after receiving approval from the Central Bank of Bahrain.
In March, the official Twitter account of Rain asked the community if the platform should list the second largest meme token.
Now, in a recent tweet, the company announced that it had finally added support for Shiba.
Earlier this year, Shiba Inu was also listed on several other platforms, including Parex decentralized exchange and Robinhood trading app.

Whale buys 455 billion SHIB, sells at profit
WhaleStats crypto tracking service that tracks and shares data on the largest wallets on Ethereum, Polygon, BNB and other chains, has tweeted that another eye-popping amount of Shiba Inu has been bought by a major whale on the ETH chain.
The owner of the "BlueWhale0073" wallet has acquired a whopping 455,957,607,129 SHIB tokens. This large amount of canine crypto cost him $4,933,461.

By now, however, the whale has sold the majority of his SHIB after the token's price staged a 25 percent rise, going from $0.00001056 to $0.00001320 on the Binance exchange.
The amount of SHIB this whale has left is tiny now and, along with other small tokens – UNI, HEX, etc. – comprises $17,976, or merely 0.25% of his portfolio. Shiba Inu totaled 90% of the incoming tokens and then 82% of outgoing ones.
The major holdings of this whale at the moment are USDC (the largest asset owned by him), MATIC and LINK.
