In January this year, MEXC Global added BONE support, becoming one of the first exchanges to list the Shiba Inu ecosystem governance token.
As reported by U.Today, the top crypto exchange also recently expanded support for Shiba Inu by launching a USDC pair. In July 2021, MEXC announced that Shiba Inu could now be traded on its platform, becoming one of the first exchanges to list Shiba Inu early.
With less than 65,000 BONE left for farming, the enthusiasm around the asset remains on an uptick. In June, the Shiba Inu community overwhelmingly voted in favor of halting all BONE farming upon reaching 230 million minted tokens. The remaining 20 million tokens were intended to be saved for Shibarium validators. BONE's supply remains capped at 250 million tokens.
Boosted by positive news, BONE remains up 3.73% at $1.05 against the backdrop of other crypto assets, which traded in the red at press time, given the recent market selloff. The 24-hour trading volume for BONE is also up 54.71%, indicating a resurgence in traders' interest.
