• Shiba Inu and Dogecoin are now accepted through BitPay by a Vancouver-based meat company

  • Shiba Inu, Dogecoin, and other BitPay-supported cryptocurrencies are now accepted as payment by Vancouver-based meatmeCA. The Vancouver-based meat company, which connects consumers with local producers and allows them to order meat products online, announced the integration of BitPay into its checkout.

    Customers would be able to pay for their orders with Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), and five USD-pegged stablecoins (BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDC, and USDP) thanks to this integration with BitPay.

    BitPay officially began accepting the Shiba Inu Coin in late 2021, allowing SHIB to be used at hundreds of BitPay shops that accept Shiba Inu.

    SlingTV, American Cancer Society, Newegg, Menufy, Carolina Hurricanes, and Twitch are among the prominent companies that currently take SHIB via BitPay.

    Price movement

    After the European Parliament voted to outlaw anonymous bitcoin transactions, the cryptocurrency market is trying to rebound. According to CoinMarketCap data, the price of meme cryptocurrency Shiba Inu (SHIB) has dropped roughly 7.80 percent in the last 24 hours. Dogecoin (DOGE) has also dropped by more than 7% in the same time frame.

    As Shiba Inu fell, data from the WhaleStats on-chain data platform shows that in the last 17 hours, a whale dubbed “Bombur” purchased a massive 175.2 billion SHIB, worth approximately $4.4 million.

    Previously, WhaleStats recorded regular transactions involving the purchase of SHIB from another top ETH whale known as “Gimli.” On March 30, “Gimli” paid a total of $11,313,795 for a total of 421,370,420,624 SHIB in two large payments.
