Shiba Inu [SHIB] has managed to veer into every industry. The boost that the entire crypto market amassed over the last couple of years is impeccable. Now, as the demand pertaining to the use of crypto surges, mainstream businesses have been accepting a wide variety of crypto. While Bitcoin [BTC] is an obvious choice to many, coins with dainty value like SHIB are also being extensively employed. A luxury health club in New York was smitten by the crypto bug.

Equinox, a luxury health hotspot was embracing crypto by partnering with prominent crypto payment processor BitPay. The gym intended to join hands with BitPay in order to provide its customers with a wide range of payment options.

BitPay supports an array of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC], Dogecoin [DOGE], and Shiba Inu. BitPay onboarded SHIB only in late 2021, despite this, the altcoin is steering into most of the platforms. While Equinox hasn’t shed light on the cryptocurrencies that would be accepted, the community speculated that Shiba Inu would be a part of it.

During press time the altcoin was trading for $0.00002142 with a nearly 2 percent surge over the last 24-hours.

Additionally, the gym is quite popular and is home to several celebrities. Therefore, the addition of crypto would not only lure in more members to the gym but also boost the adoption of those assets.

Elon Musk’s big Twitter takeover has given hope to many in the crypto community. While some have been pushing him towards accepting crypto, a few others have been seeking verification. The lead developer of Shiba Inu who goes by the name, Shytoshi Kusuma was one among them.

The developer was highly focused on including Shiba Inu in the Twitter ecosystem. He tweeted,

Several others, however, stressed the unlikelihood of the situation. Musk has been vocal about his interest in Dogecoin. Shiba Inu, on the other hand, emerged as a Doge-killer. Therefore, Musk including Shiba Inu on Twitter was a far-fetched plea.
