Shiba Inu cryptocurrency was created as a Dogecoin rival in August 2020

Highlights
  • Shiba Inu is currently $0.00003672 (roughly Rs. 0.0028) per token
  • Its addition on the Bitstamp exchange has made supporters happy
  • Three more cryptocurrencies are now listed on Bitstamp for trading

International cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp will be enabling trading US Dollars and Euros in exchange of Shiba Inu cryptocurrency. The move is noteworthy as it adds to the list of brands that are warming up towards the meme-based dog coin that was launched as a Dogecoin copycat. Bitstamp will now allow users to deposit and withdraw funds in Shiba Inu. Presently, SHIB is trading at $0.00003672 (roughly Rs. 0.0028) per token, which is held by 1,044,066 wallets, as per the data on CoinMarketCap.

Supporters of the Shiba Inu mem cryptocurrency, who refer to themselves as the SHIB army, have expressed excitement about this development on Twitter.

Earlier this year, US-based movie hall chain AMC Theatres also listed Shiba Inu as a payment option for tickets and goodies purchases.

Around that time, the Shiba Inu coin had registered a 50 percent spike and had emerged as the 11th-biggest cryptocurrency coin by market value, a reported by WatcherGuru had revealed.

In November, two major crypto exchanges, Kraken and Gemini, added support for SHIB.

Bitstamp is also adding dydx (DYDX), gala (GALA), and perpetual protocol (PERP) as trading options on its platform.

Presently, the newly added cryptocurrencies on Bitstamp are open for deposits and withdrawals but their trading is not yet enabled, the crypto exchange wrote in a blog post.

“You will be able to place and cancel limit orders, but they will not be matched. Therefore, no orders will actually be completed during this stage. Order matching will start and trades will be executed normally. However, only limit orders will be available,” the post added.

As soon as the Bitstamp order books gather sufficient liquidity, the company will enable all order types and card purchases for the new trading pairs as well.
