Shiba Inu [SHIB] has been the talk of the crypto town for the longest time now. The latest listing on the prominent trading platform, Robinhood further elevated the altcoin’s popularity. The dog-inspired meme coin has managed to secure a spot on almost every crypto platform. However, one particular exchange still seemed to be sitting on the fence with regard to the listing of the altcoin.

Bitstamp, like any other crypto exchange, announced the listing of Shiba Inu. Just before 2021 came to an end, prominent crypto exchange, Bitstamp alerted the community that it would be putting off this listing for a while. The exchange blamed technical difficulties as the reason behind this delay.

The Shib Army, however, grew impatient. Time and again the community has been seen urging platforms across the globe to onboard Shiba Inu. From food to taxi services, an array of companies have been accepting the altcoin. The Army was visibly irked by this delay as they flooded BitStamp’s Twitter with “wen Shib?” tweets.

Emphasizing the specifics, a Twitter user pointed out that the community has been waiting since 9 December 2021.

But why is this listing so important? Bitstamp has a significant presence in the European region. With a 4.4 million user base across the globe, Bitstamp is sure to give cryptocurrencies a boost through its listings. The addition of Shiba Inu could prove to be extremely beneficial for the altcoin.

Additionally, Bitstamp assured that the listing plea of the Shib Army would be fulfilled in 2022. With a large part of the year still ahead, a listing announcement could be in the making.

Shiba Inu sinks with other cryptocurrencies

Almost every coin in the market was drowning in the red sea. Dogecoin [DOGE], however, was glistening in green. Shiba Inu was down by 1.33 percent over the last couple of hours. Despite this dainty drop, the asset was considered to have fared better than the other assets in the market.

Furthermore, at press time, the altcoin was trading for $0.00002598.
