Shiba Inu continues to see acceptance as payment in the travel industry. As previously reported by U.Today, ticket and hotel booking platform XcelTrip announced the implementation of SHIB as a payment method, allowing SHIB holders to organize their travel and pay for them in full using their favorite meme cryptocurrency. According to XcelTrip, users can now book 2.3 million hotels, over 450 airlines, and car rentals in more than 70 countries using SHIB.
Also, NOWPayments has enabled merchants to deploy a SHIB BSC payment gateway, enabling acceptance of the wrapped SHIB token.
