Travala Adds Support for Shiba Inu Crypto
Travel website Travala announced Tuesday that shiba inu cryptocurrency has been added to its website as a payment method.
The official account for the company tweeted congratulating shiba inu supporters for winning the token battle it set up a few days ago, adding that SHIB is now listed as a payment method on Travala.com and can be used to book over 3 million travel products worldwide.
Travala set up a “token battle” between FLOKI and SHIB on Dec. 2. The company explained that the cryptocurrency with the most votes after 72 hours “will win a listing on Travala.com.” In addition, “All users who vote for either token will receive a share of $15,000 in AVA, which will be dispersed in accordance with the votes cast.”
The voting ended with SHIB as the clear winner.
“We pride ourselves on being the leading cryptocurrency-friendly accommodation booking platform,” Travala’s website states. Currently, users can pay with 77 cryptocurrencies, including the meme cryptocurrency dogecoin (DOG) and the newly listed SHIB.
The crypto-friendly travel site reported earlier this month that its total revenue for November was $7.2 million, a 683% increase year-on-year. Furthermore, 82% of all bookings in November were paid with cryptocurrencies.
The adoption of shiba inu crypto has been rising steadily. In November, cryptocurrency exchanges Kraken and Gemini added support for SHIB. Newegg is set to accept shiba inu for payments this month and AMC Theatres promises to accept SHIB in the first quarter of next year. Meanwhile, shiba inu supporters have been petitioning for the popular trading platform Robinhood to accept SHIB. At the time of writing, 544,304 signatures have been collected.
