Travala accepts SHIB payments
Travala.com has been a major supporter of crypto payments. The firm accepts more than 40 popular cryptocurrencies as payments. The platform is supported by AVA, its native token based on both Ethereum (ETH/USD) and the Binance Smart Chain blockchains.
The Travala travel website uses a community-based approach to list cryptocurrencies. In November, it posted a poll on Twitter asking the next token that should be added to the platform. Shiba Inu emerged as the winner of this poll, having amassed 3.4 million votes.
The Shiba Inu community has been deemed one of the strongest pillars of the token, and this is why the token is pushing towards greater heights, and it is amassing much popularity across the market.
Shiba Inu’s rising popularity
Over the past few months, the SHIB token has made the most headlines across the crypto charts. Its growing popularity and number of holders have led to the token being accepted as a means of payment on various platforms such as AMC theatres.
The token has also been listed on leading exchanges such as Binance, Coinbase, Gemini and Kraken. The only leading exchange that is yet to list the token is Robinhood. Nevertheless, a petition is already running to pressure Robinhood to list the token.
Despite the recession in the broader market, the number of SHIB holders has now surpassed one million. The SHIB development team is also working on initiatives such as the recently unveiled plans to venture into the metaverse.
The growing number of holders and its popularity could also be why the token has not erased all of its recent gains, and despite the recent bear market, it is still holding ground above $0.000040.
