The Shiba Inu community (SHIB army) has actively created petitions to list SHIB on Robinhood to get it accepted as a payment method at AMC Theatres and McDonald's. AMC Theatres have accepted SHIB Army's request and announced that SHIB could be used to make payments across its theatre chain outlets through BitPay.
Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Theatres, recently tweeted:
Attention #SHIBArmy: Our friends @Bitpay decided to support Shiba Inu specifically because I asked, so AMC can take Shiba Inu for online payments of movie tickets and concessions. @AMCTheatres to be the first @bitpay client to accept Shiba Inu. Timing 60-120 days. This is a WOW! pic.twitter.com/F54i22hHDv— Adam Aron (@CEOAdam) November 15, 2021
The analytics firm Santiment recently referred to SHIB as a "blue chip" among Ethereum powered altcoins. Santiment listed SHIB, Yearn Finance (YFI), Uniswap (UNI), AAVE and Chainlink (LINK) as the five blue-chip ETH altcoins.
@venturefounder, a cryptocurrency analyst, believes that meme coins Shiba Inu and Dogecoin rallied ahead of a Bitcoin bull run. The analyst considers that the next time SHIB price rallies, it is a sign of the crypto market getting overheated.
#memecoin rallying = top indicator?— venturefoundΞr (@venturefounder) November 18, 2021
Be more cautious next time you see $DOGE and $SHIB at their ATH again, it's a sign that the market is getting overheated and complacent.
Interesting how this time #memecoins actually rallied first, ahead of #BTC and #ETH. pic.twitter.com/BW5EkklPNi
Shiba Inu's utility has hit a peak, with over 500 merchants accepting SHIB as a form of payment. A mysterious new SHIB whale has purchased 170 billion Shiba Inu tokens worth $8.1 million during a dip.
The whale converted ETH to buy SHIB; proponents consider it a bullish sign for Shiba Inu price.
FXStreet analysts have evaluated SHIB price and identified a triple bottom pattern to catapult Shiba Inu to $0.000088.
