Professional ice hockey team Carolina Hurricanes will accept Shiba Inu (SHIB) payments via BitPay.
BitPay added support for the famous meme token earlier this month, marking an important step towards its adoption. Apart from SHIB, the platform also supports Bitcoin (BTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Wrapp Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), and various stablecoins.
Don Waddell, managing director of Carolina Hurricanes, said that crypto payments have been added to improve the shopping experience of Canes fans and make them part of the crypto community:
The Hurricanes are currently the second best performing team in the NHL for the 2021-2022 season.
Shiba Inu Continues Adoption
SHIB adoption, also referred to as the Dogecoin killer, is increasing day by day. Recently, tech e-shop Newegg accepted SHIB as a payment option earlier this month.
Travel company Travala, which collaborates with more than two million hotels worldwide, has allowed its customers to pay with SHIB.
Cinema giant AMC has also announced that it will accept SHIB at the beginning of 2022.
