Shiba Inu has accomplished yet another feat. The cryptocurrency is spreading to new places as more establishments agree to accept the meme-currency as payment. Virtual Reality World is the newest addition to the list, having stated that Shiba Inu would be accepted as legal payment. VR World, North and South America’s largest virtual reality experience facility, now supports the meme cryptocurrency as a payment method on its platform. This is another another major victory for the SHIBArmy.
In conjunction with payment processor BitPay, VR World will accept Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies. This implies SHIB may be used to make purchases at retailers who accept BitPay or where digital gift cards can be purchased using its wallet app.
“After VR World hosted the official afterparty for NFT NYC conference last month, it became clear to us – cryptocurrency has entered everyday life,” said the CEO of VR World Leo Tsimmer.
“@vrworldnyc , the largest virtual reality club in America, now accepts #cryptocurrency for payment for goods and services through BitPay,” tweeted the official handle of BitPay.
