Shiba Inu (SHIB) surges as it begins trading on Kraken and Newegg to accept SHIB early December

Shiba Inu (SHIB) investors are becoming more bullish than ever with the SHIB team announcing news of former Activision executive William Volk joining the Shiba Inu Gaming division, SHIB finally getting listed on Kraken and ecommerce giant Newegg accepting SHIB as payment on its enormous online platform.

William David Volk, former Vice President of Technology at Activision, has been hired to assist on the company’s play-to-earn non-fungible token (NFT) game.

The game, nicknamed the Oshiverse at first, would be the next addition to the SHIB ecosystem. Shytoshi Kusama, the decentralized utility currency’s project creator, revealed further details on Medium on November 26 in an article titled “The Future of Gaming is Shib.”

Furthermore, Shytoshi indicated that Shiba Inu has forged a collaboration with an AAA gaming business to build an NFT game, most likely using Shiboshi NFTs. He couldn’t say who owned the studio because of a pre-existing non-disclosure agreement.

Furthermore, SHIB has come a long way from its early meme coin branding days, and the digital asset is attempting to break free from that label by wanting to develop a strong crypto-ecosystem with legitimate applications and activities.

Previously, hedge fund manager Michael Burry criticized the token, calling it “pointless” and a “poor investment alternative.” However, interest in the dog coin has grown, with Shiba Inu token holders surpassing the 1 million mark last week.

In other news, Newegg revealed that it would begin using SHIB as a payment option on Monday, November 29.
