Is another Shiba Inu listing underway?

Today, another prominent Japanese exchange, bitFlyer announced that it will start “handling” Shiba Inu. To commemorate the same, the exchange will give away SHIB tokens to selected customers via a lottery. Notably, the exchange has around 2.5 million users.

The Shiba Inu community has been eagerly waiting for top exchanges in Japan to list the SHIB token. In fact, Shiba Inu proponent “Cheggy” had launched a petition requesting Japanese exchanges ‘To List SHIB’. It has allegedly been more than 200 days since the campaign has been put to sea.

Japan’s crypto stance has notably eased over the years. The country has already made significant strides in NFT and Metaverse ecosystem. In fact, the government is also looking to ease certain rules. A listing, in such an environment, could be considered to be a boon for SHIB.
