Travel website buys around 3 million products with Shiba Inu
The website had staged a token battle on Twitter between Floki meme coin and Shiba Inu on December 2 to determine the winner after 72 hours of voting, Bitcoin.com reported. The piece with the most votes had to be listed on Travala.com. Shiba Inu got the maximum number of votes and has now been included on Travala.com, where 77 cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin, are already authorized in its payment system.
Travala.com was founded by a group of seasoned travelers, blockchain and fintech experts with a vision to align travel booking with decentralized technology. The roaming website claims to provide accessibility for everyone with peer-to-peer transactions and create open source technology controlled by software and governed by users. The website was reportedly paid in cryptocurrency for 82% of the bookings. It also has its native AVA cryptocurrency, which can be used for payments, receiving and redeeming loyalty rewards and refunds.
Recently, Shiba Inu was adopted as a payment method and was recently accepted into the payment system by AMC theaters in November for use from the first quarter of 2022. In addition to Newegg, a California-based electronics seller has announced accepting the December coin. The Kraken and Gemini crypto exchanges also added Shiba Inu tokens for trading on November 30 and 12 respectively.
