“A Champion has been crowned!” they tweeted highlighted Shiba Inu. BitPay continued, “With a decisive victory each round, Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB) is the winner of the 2022 BitPay Brackets! #SHIBArmy was ignited & voted in droves. Congratulations #SHIBCoin and #SHIBArmy – this meme coin is no joke!”

“Today’s the final match in BitPay Brackets. Who will win the championship game – Polygon or Shiba Inu coin? Cast your vote now!” tweeted BitPay yesterday igniting the battle between Shiba Inu and Polygon which went on for a whole day.

The Shiba army is one of the most vocal communities in the crypto sphere and makes their voices heard across social media. From urging top companies to accept SHIB as payment to requesting top exchanges to list the token, they’ve been there and done that.

The community was so vocal about Robinhood listing Shiba Inu, that the top executive at Robinhood could not escape any interview without answering questions about a SHIB listing. The ‘Hey Robinhood, When SHIB?’ slogan doesn’t miss a single day on social media.

The community believes that the leading exchange will sooner or later list the token this year and allow its 24 million customers to trade SHIB. However, Robinhood has not confirmed listing Shiba Inu yet nor have they hinted about getting it onboard.

Shiba Inu : The Path Ahead

Shiba Inu is geared up for the release of their upcoming development ‘SHIB: The Metaverse’. The team has not announced a tentative release date but it’s expected to be launched sometime this year. Apart from the Metaverse, the most-awaited development in the ecosystem is Shibarium.

Shibarium is a layer-2 network that acts as its own blockchain and surpasses Ethereum’s high gas fees. Its release could open the gates for another batch of new investors as the developers aim to drastically reduce gas fees. It s reported that fees might also be $0 while transacting the token in Shibarium.
