Travala, which has 2 million hotel and 400 flight listings, now accepts Shiba Inus
Travala, a blockchain-based travel company backed by Binance, has added Shiba Inu payment support to their website. The Australia-based crypto-forward company's official account congratulated Shiba Inu supporters on winning the token war it held a few days ago via a poll, noting that SHIB is now available as a payment method on Travala's website and can be used to book over 2 million hotels worldwide and flights from over 600 airlines using the SHIB token.
While this is a significant victory for the ShibArmy, Travala has openly accepted crypto payments for some time. On their website, the platform already accepts more than 40 major cryptocurrencies for payment. Nearly 4.9 million people voted in the Travala token battle between Floki Inu and Shiba Inu. In the election, Shiba Inu received 3.4 million votes, accounting for 69 percent of all votes cast. Dogecoin, a rival meme coin and fellow dog coin, was added to the list of accepted payment methods in early May 2021.
AVA, Travala's native token, is a multi-chain token based on the Binance Smart Chain and the Ethereum blockchain.
This is yet another example of the SHIB community's continued support for the meme token and efforts to expand its adoption across platforms that accept cryptocurrency payments. The victory comes after the community's overwhelming social media support persuaded Kraken to list Shiba Inu on its platform. Kraken took nearly a month to complete the listing process, but it was eventually completed.
Shiba Inu has gotten more attention in recent months than most other altcoins, including DOGE. AMC theatres, a major US movie theater chain, announced in November that it would accept SHIB payments. Shiba Inu is available for trading on almost all major exchanges, including Binance, Kraken, Coinbase, and Gemini. All that appears to be left is Robinhood, and the community has been pleading with the US-based exchange to make it happen.
Earlier this month, SHIB achieved yet another milestone. Despite the recent drop in value, the cryptocurrency has over 1 million users, a feat only a few major altcoins have achieved so far.
