What is Shiba Inu Crypto?

About Shiba Inu

Shiba Inu is a crypto project that was launched in 2020 and quickly took over the world thanks to its charming mascot and the fascinating idea of building the strongest decentralized community in the crypto realm. SHIB serves as the driving force of the Shiba Inu ecosystem, delivering the benefits of a decentralized and community-driven currency to holders. Today, Shiba Inu is much more than its native token, as it now incorporates a swap, a set of additional tokens such as LEASH, a metaverse, and even its own Layer-2 solution. Basically, Shiba Inu now has the potential to become one of the biggest names not only in the crypto industry but in the entire Web3 world of the future.

Why Are Investors Bullish on SHIB?

As mentioned above, the SHIB token is once again topping the charts and the reason for this is the expansion of its ecosystem. Perhaps, the biggest news that came from Shiba Inu in the past month concerned the Beta testing phase of its Layer-2 solution called Shibarium. A Layer-2 solution is built on top of an existing blockchain in order to scale its operations and facilitate transactions.

Shibarium will be deployed on the Ethereum network to bring additional utility to the Shiba Inu ecosystem and make SHIB transactions faster and less expensive. The news about Shibarium entering the testing mode has launched SHIB’s price to the moon, yielding a 20% growth over the past 30 days. This means that investors are more bullish than ever on SHIB and we can only imagine how things will look once Shibarium hits its official launch date.

Yet, SHIB has plenty to offer even without Shibarium, especially for trading companies that want to benefit from featuring this token on their platforms. Here are the key strengths of SHIB.

Unrestricted use

Users can take advantage of SHIB anytime and any day without facing any kind of restrictions. The Ethereum blockchain is always available and so are SHIB transactions. This means that users are free to send and receive funds in SHIB at any moment of day or night and all year round.

There are no limits on how much you can send per day or any type of cool-down period. SHIB lets users send both small and large sums of money, which is always useful in trading. Thus, trading platforms will face no scalability problems when utilizing the Shiba Inu token.

Incredible community

Over the past two years, Shiba Inu has garnered an extensive fan base of over one million individuals who own the SHIB token, as well as other tokens of the project.

What’s more, SHIBArmy is among the most active communities in crypto, which translates into massive support for any SHIB-related project. Trading companies have the opportunity to tap into this large pool of users and transform them into prospective customers by simply accepting SHIB payments.

Quick transactions

Despite not being the quickest cryptocurrency on the market, SHIB still offers impressive transaction speeds. In comparison to Bitcoin, whose transactions can take up to several hours, SHIB transactions can be completed in a matter of minutes. This makes SHIB especially beneficial for trading companies that need to ensure that their clients can move money in and out of the platform at a high speed.

How Can Trading Companies Benefit from Shib?

Low processing fee and 20-minute rate freeze

With NOWPayments, trading companies are not required to pay any setup fees or obligatory monthly fees. Instead, they only need to pay a mere 0.5% fee on all processed transactions. This makes it one of the most affordable payment gateways in the crypto space. Essentially, any user can deploy SHIB payments absolutely for free and pay only when they actually use the payment processing tool. This gives users more flexibility when it comes to accepting crypto payments. Additionally, NOWPayments stabilizes the exchange rate for a period of 20 minutes, providing users and their clients with extra convenience when making SHIB payments.

Instant and non-custodial transactions

The transaction processing speed is of massive importance to trading companies when using cryptocurrencies. NOWPayments guarantees instant transaction processing to all users. This is due to the fact that NOWPayments does not store the funds of its clients in its own wallets by default. Instead, NOWPayments makes payouts to the users’ wallets as soon as the transaction takes place. Trading platforms will particularly benefit from this feature, ensuring a better user experience for clients. At the same time, NOWPayments offers the custody feature, letting trading companies keep their funds in their NOWPayments account and withdraw them at any moment if they desire to do so.

Over 150 cryptocurrencies available

SHIB is not the only cryptocurrency NOWPayments lets users accept. In fact, the service has more than 150 different cryptocurrencies and tokens that trading platforms can utilize as payment methods. For instance, in addition to SHIB, NOWPayments also enables users to accept LEASH and BONE, the other two tokens in the Shiba Inu ecosystem. NOWPayments does not impose any restrictions on the users in terms of the maximum number of cryptocurrencies they are allowed to accept. Thus, trading companies are free to deploy as many cryptocurrencies as payment as they wish. Increasing the number of cryptocurrencies accepted as payment will not affect processing time or cause delays.

Crypto-to-fiat conversion

At NOWPayments, we know quite well that managing cryptocurrencies may not be everyone’s cup of tea. This is why we make it possible for our users to take full advantage of the crypto economy without actually interacting with cryptocurrencies whatsoever. Any user can utilize the auto-conversion feature, which instantly converts cryptocurrency payments to fiat. As a result, the user becomes able to charge clients in crypto but receive the sum in fiat. Trading platforms that do not wish to keep crypto on their balance sheet can easily enable the auto-conversion feature and enjoy the benefits offered by crypto without coming into contact with it.
