Shiba Inu (SHIB), one of the most popular crypto projects, is now accepted as a payment by luxury watchmaker Breitling. This has been made possible by a partnership between Breitling and the crypto payment platform, BitPay.

Other cryptocurrencies supported by BitPay besides Bitcoin and Shiba Inu include Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Wrapped Bitcoin, and the other five USD-pegged stablecoins (BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDC, and USDP). These cryptocurrencies can also be used for payments by the luxury watch brand’s customers.

Previously, Tag Heuer and Hublot, two high-end Swiss watchmakers, declared they would accept cryptocurrency through BitPay.

Hublot, a Swiss luxury watchmaker, said earlier in June that customers could now use cryptocurrencies to pay for 200 limited-edition watches that had just been produced. According to a tweet from Hublot, only consumers of the US eBoutique will be able to use this payment method.
