As a meme coin, Shiba Inu can be unpredictable when it comes to its price. However, there have been some major developments happening in the ecosystem. The market has also been improving generally, with all assets seeing high price bumps over the past few days.

Fellow meme coin DOGE also saw a huge increase in price, with the token increasing by over 21% in value. This bodes well for those who go after meme coins, though the price spike might not last long.

SHIB Burn Rate Also Increases Massively

The increase in SHIB price comes as the burn rate also spikes. The SHIB Burn tracker shows that the burn rate has risen by a massive 1,934% in the last 24 hours. This could be one of the reasons behind the price bump.

SHIB has gone up in price by over 15% in the last week. The token is now $0.00001161, having been at around $0.00001001 seven days ago. The token has now crossed the $6 billion mark for the first time in nearly three weeks.

Users Can Pay for Netflix and Amazon (Indirectly) Using SHIB

There have been reports that SHIB holders may soon be able to pay for Netflix and Amazon services indirectly using SHIB. The payment feature comes thanks to FCF Pay, which says that it will soon support SHIB in its prepaid debit cards.

Users are not paying for Netflix and Amazon directly. Rather, they are paying for the services through FCF Pay’s prepaid debit card and whatever crypto assets it supports.

What the payment services provider does is convert the crypto asset into fiat at the point of purchase. Another move forward in terms of adoption is the fact that real estate brands Pacaso and Condos.com will also accept SHIB via BitPay.
