SHIB Army-Investors King

One of the leading meme coins, Shiba Inu has gained the support of AMC entertainment and Bricks Buster mobile games to solidify its acceptance and burn more coins from circulation.

The movie chain, AMC initially plan to accept bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin as payment methods for tickets and concessions in the coming months. But on Monday, the founder of Gokhshtein Media, David Gokhshtein through his social media handle revealed that the CEO of AMC is working on adding SHIB to crypto payment methods. He tweeted, “Breaking: CEO of AMC working on bringing $SHIB as a payment.”

Last month, it was reported that the CEO of AMC, Adam Aron created a poll on Twitter seeking his followers’ opinion on accepting Shiba Inu as a payment method for AMC Entertainment. The poll garnered more than 150,000 votes where over 80 percent of participants voted in favour of onboarding Shib as a means of payment.

The decision may not be unconnected to the recent popularity of Shiba Inu. AMC is expected to enable crypto payment methods in the first quarter of 2022.

On the side, a mobile game app, Bricks Buster has recently been created to burn Shiba Inu coin through ad revenue. The developer of the mobile game app Travis Johnson affirmed that the mobile game app was not originally created to burn SHIB coin, however, as a strong holder of Shiba Inu, he decided to support the SHIB Army to burn coin using his game app.

According to the game developer, the mobile game burns $10 per day from Google advertising revenue. Since he first announced the idea to burn SHIB via his game, traffic for Bricks Buster surged by over 800 percent.

“If the ShibArmy really got involved, we could literally be burning thousands of dollars a day, at no cost to the ShibArmy,” Johnson said.

The developer noted that the burning of SHIB is important and will help reduce the supply of SHIB coins in circulation. He also believed that this action “will help create long-term wealth in the SHIB community”.

Johnson further acknowledges other SHIB burning projects like the SHIB Burner playlist. He said, “every burn implementation, especially those that don’t involve the army incinerating their own money, is very important and should be fully supported.

“Burning 500 trillion SHIB is going to take a long time no matter how we go about it, and it’s just a matter of consistency, and implementing as many new burn strategies as we can.”

According to Shibburn page, 410,297,362,838,474 SHIB coins have been burn Out of 1,000,000,000,000,000 SHIB Initial Supply. In the last 24 hours 25,796,282 Shiba Inu coin has been burnt.

The Shibburn page explains what happens to coins burnt and the effect on SHIB price. The page reads: “Burning tokens permanently removes them from the circulating supply, similar to the idea of a publicly-traded company buying back stock. This is done by sending your tokens to a special wallet with unobtainable private keys. The decrease in the circulating supply will eventually drive Shiba Inu’s price upward.”

At press time, Shiba Inu is trading at $0.00005355 gaining 0.90 percent in the last 24 hours with 549,095,509,738,353 SHIB in circulation.

Newegg to Start Accepting Shiba Inu (SHIB) for Payments in December

SHIB Coin- Investorsking

More wins for the Shiba Inu community as Newegg Commerce, a leading tech-focused North American e-retailer, announced it will start accepting Shiba Inu (SHIB) cryptocurrency as a form of payment and NOWPayments announced it has burnt over 43 million Shiba Inu coins.

Newegg announced the acceptance of Shiba Inu coin as payment just in time for the end of the year holiday. The official announcement was made on a grand scale with a massive digital out-of-home (DOOH) campaign which was displayed on The Reef, North America’s largest DOOH billboard.

Newegg commerce was part of the early adopters of Bitcoin when it partnered BitPay in 2014. The trend continued with the acceptance of Dogecoin as a payment method in the first quarter of 2021.

To further cement its position as one of the early adopters of digital assets in the crypto space, Newegg added SHIB to its growing list of cryptocurrencies accepted for payment.

“We are always looking for ways to innovate the shopping experience on Newegg.com, and something our customers want is greater flexibility and options, including the ability to pay with a wide range of cryptocurrencies, through our partnership with BitPay, we have the ability to move quickly and lead the market with flexible cryptocurrency payment options. To that end, we’re excited to offer SHIB as a payment option on Newegg.com”, said Andrew Choi, Director of Brand Marketing at Newegg.

The new month ushered in more excitement for the Shiba Inu Community with NOWPayments burning 43,445,695 SHIB coins. The burnt coins were sent to a dead wallet removing over $2000 worth of Shiba Inu from circulation.

The initial goal of the company was to burn only 3 percent of profits generated from SHIB transactions, which would have summed up to only $12 worth of SHIB. However, the Shiba Inu community has been very active on platforms that announced they will burn a certain percentage of their profits. Some of the businesses burning SHIB were Bigger Entertainment, Bricks Buster mobile game and Shiba Coffee Company.

NOWPayment decision to increase total Shiba Inu coin burn was to “stay true to the SHIB ecosystem principles”, the company stated in one of its press releases. The company said it has now burnt a total of $2,059 worth of SHIB, mostly from its own fund and not only SHIB payments.

According to NOWPayments “This figure will rise with new upcoming burns – as more merchants sign up, and the ETH fees go down”. The company also said that the next Shiba Inu burn will happen at the end of the month.

The company is also working on the SHIB merchant directory, this will contain the list of all merchants that accept Shiba Inu as a payment method.

Explaining the company’s support for the meme coin, NOWPayments said “We share a global mission with the SHIB foundation, which is to bring cryptocurrencies into the world around us—mass adoption”.

Bitcoin is a Better Inflation Hedge Than Gold: deVere CEO

Published

on

bitcoin to Nigerian Naira - Investors King

The Bitcoin rally stalled on heightening global worries about inflation, but, says the CEO of one of the world’s leading financial advisory, asset management and fintech firms, it remains “a better shield than gold.”

The largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization ended three consecutive days of healthy gains, before stabilizing, after U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said on Tuesday it may be time to stop using the term “transitory” as a way of describing the current wave of inflation.

Meanwhile, inflation in Europe has ballooned to the highest on record.

Mr Green says: “Bitcoin is perceived by many investors as a hedge against inflation due largely to its strict supply controls.

“As such, it would be assumed that its price would automatically rise when the U.S. central bank suggests that it would consider speeding up the reduction of its asset purchase policies that have boosted the stock markets.

“But for other investors, including some major institutional investors who have piled into Bitcoin in recent months, the cryptocurrency is still perceived as a risky asset.

“So when they sell-off riskier assets, despite the longer-term outlook and based on short-term hawkish policies from the world’s de facto central bank, Bitcoin, like equities, also becomes vulnerable.”

A long-term, high-profile crypto advocate, Mr Green remains confident that “Bitcoin is today a greater inflation shield than gold”, which has long been the standard go-to inflation hedge.

He says: “Gold has always been regarded as the ultimate inflation hedge – but the world is a much different place now. Our lives and the global economy is increasingly run on tech and digital solutions and this megatrend is only set to become more dominant.

“Gold is likely to be dethroned within a generation as millennials and younger investors, who are so-called ‘digital natives’, are going to be more comfortable with Bitcoin as a hedge than a physical metal.”

The deVere CEO goes on to say: “Bitcoin is often referred to as ‘digital gold’ because like the precious metal it is a medium of exchange, a unit of account, non-sovereign, decentralized, scarce, and a store of value.

“Yet, the cryptocurrency, Bitcoin is superior to gold as a medium of exchange or form of payment.

“Unlike gold, it is a fixed unit of account and easily divisible and transportable. Gold is not easily immediately divisible, and there are potential issues with purity and verification. Whereas Bitcoin is easily traced on blockchain technology and this is going to be a considerable advantage, especially in cross-border transactions.”

Mr Green concludes: “Gold and Bitcoin can, and perhaps should, complement each other in a portfolio.

“But as the world continues to pick up momentum in its shift towards tech, and as millennials become a more dominant part of the world economy, we should expect Bitcoin to also take an increasingly influential role in financial markets, including in regards to being an inflation hedge.”

Saylor believed that Bitcoin (BTC) “is the only property you can truly own, as well as the first technology capable of granting property rights to everyone on earth and In time, we will come to understand that it is concentrated energy in digital form and critical to the progression of our civilization.”

Despite some countries showing little to no adoption to digital assets, Saylor believed that Bitcoin has a potential to become a $100 trillion asset class. He said “digital gold is going to replace gold this decade.”

The MicroStrategy CEO further said the company is not troubled with the ongoing discussion on crypto regulation, noting that it will affect security tokens, decentralized finance (defi) exchanges, crypto exchanges, and other use cases of cryptocurrency that are not bitcoin. In his opinion, “bitcoin is unstoppable as digital property.”
