Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies are now accepted as payments by luxury yacht charter and brokerage company Camper & Nicholsons via BitPay. The 240-year-old company now accepts cryptocurrency payments for its entire yacht fleet, for buying, chartering and all other services.
BitPay supports cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) and five USD-pegged stable coins (BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDC and USDP).
BitPay officially began supporting the Shiba Inu coin in late 2021, which allowed spending SHIB at hundreds of BitPay merchants where Shiba Inu is accepted.
Camper & Nicholsons International is one of the oldest yachting companies in the world, founded in 1782 as a shipyard in Gosport, England. Today, Camper & Nicholsons boasts 11 offices around the world spread across four continents, with over 140 yachts in its sales and charter management fleet and over 44,000 gross tons of yachts.
SlingTV, the American Cancer Society, Newegg, Menufy, the Carolina Hurricanes and Twitch are among the major companies accepting SHIB via BitPay at the moment.
As reported by U.Today, Jamestown, a company focused on real estate investment and management, stated it had started accepting cryptocurrencies via BitPay.
