- At the door to the cafe, there is a sticker that says “Shiba Inu accepted here.”
- The value and popularity of the Shiba Inu continue to rise.
- The retail sector in France has largely embraced cryptocurrency.
A little popular restaurant in Paris, France, appears to have begun accepting the highly famous meme-based cryptocurrency Shiba Inu as a form of payment.
Shiba Inu (SHIB) has been making news recently, and now a Paris-based cafe has started accepting SHIB payments, as more mainstream outlets embrace the crypto-coin that is currently the 9th largest by market capitalization.
The restaurant joins a growing list of businesses in the country that accept cryptocurrency payments.
Shiba Inu’s popularity among cryptocurrency users has grown in recent weeks, and the restaurant has seen a significant boost in foot traffic since the announcement.
The café, named “Le Bistrot d’Eléonore et Maxence,” began accepting bill payments in Shiba Inu early last week, and the move was noticed by a passerby who shared a video of the establishment on a public group. The video was eventually re-posted on Twitter, with “Shiba Inu Accepted Here” stickers adorning the main entrance to the café.
Davy told Cointelegraph in an interview that he had questioned a restaurant employee to certify that $SHIB was an official mode of payment.
