Shiba Inu Gets Avalanche Bridge
Avalanche Bridge, introduced by Ava Labs in July, recently added support for Shiba Inu. The tool allows seamless moving of Ethereum tokens to the Avalanche mainnet. The firm announced:
"Avalanche Bridge (AB) is adding new tokens that can be transferred between Avalanche and Ethereum. First up, $SHIB incoming!"
Users can also transfer wrapped versions of Bitcoin and Ethereum with the help of the bridge. Per earlier reports, Avalanche's native token, AVAX, surpassed Shiba Inu by market cap in late November amid a record-setting rally. The two cryptocurrencies have remained neck-and-neck since.
Ava Labs CEO Emin Gün Sirer recently described Shiba Inu as "a zero-sum game," adding that the cryptocurrency is not his cup of tea. Ripple CTO David Schwartz also criticized meme crypto Shiba Inu recently.
The architect behind the XRP Ledger mocked the token’s gargantuan supply, joking that losing a zillion SHIB tokens would amount to a loss of a minuscule $1.37.
However, SHIB appears to be growing rapidly. Flexa, a cryptocurrency payments company backed by the Winklevoss twins, recently added support for Shiba Inu, according to a recent announcement.
This means that the holders of the hottest meme coin can now spend it at roughly 40,000 stores across the US. The extensive list of supported merchants includes video game seller GameStop, luxury retailer Nordstrom, home improvement company Lowe’s, pet retailer Petco, domestic merchandise and home furnishings company Bed Bath & Beyond, beauty store chain Ulta Beauty and plenty of other major retailers.
SHIB Whale Holds 3.2 Trillion Shiba Inu
According to WhaleStats, the crypto market has witnessed the birth of a new SHIB whale.

In three large transactions, the SHIB whale bought $120,342,829 million worth of Shiba Inu to join the growing list of large holders for the dog-themed coin.
The first large transaction appeared on the blockchain a few days ago when the whale bought nearly 3.15 trillion Shiba Inu tokens ($105,487,757 worth). This was followed by two transactions within a period of 30 minutes of 84.7 billion SHIB ($3,233,066) and 8 billion SHIB ($275,776).
Per earlier reports, SHIB is now listed as a payment method on Travala.com to book over 3 million travel products worldwide. Electronics seller Newegg stated in late November, integrating Shiba Inu through a partnership with payment processing service BitPay.
Likewise, the AMC movie theater chain became the first BitPay customer to accept Shiba Inu. In mid-November, CEO Adam Aron confirmed that the new payment option would be added in early 2022. Currently, video game seller GameStop, luxury retailer Nordstrom, home improvement company Lowe’s, pet retailer Petco, domestic merchandise and home furnishings company Bed Bath & Beyond, etc., accept SHIB.
