The multi-asset investment platform, eToro, which plans to go public later this year, has listed Shiba Inu (SHIB). The company argued that the decision came following substantial demand from customers.
Founded in 2006, eToro is an Israeli social trading and multi-asset brokerage company with offices in several European countries, the US, and Australia.
The firm announced the listing of Shiba Inu (SHIB) in a press release shared with CryptoPotato. The statement reads that the addition has come due to “strong customer demand.”
Users of eToro will be able to interact with the popular meme coin as “Shiba (in millions),” which is a “lot” of one million Shiba Inu units. According to the statement, this would provide customers with a “clearer understanding of the pricing in a regular, two-decimal-point format.”
The company recently outlined plans to go public later this year. It would become possible after a merger with a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) with a total valuation of over $10 billion.
Back in May, eToro also listed arguably the most popular meme coin – Dogecoin. Shortly after, DOGE pumped to an all-time high at that point of about $0.5.
SHIB saw its record price in mid-May as its popularity skyrocketed. However, it has declined by more than 80% since then, even though the recently launched ShibaSwap DEX attracted billions of dollars in total value locked in just a few days after the launch.
However, the TVL has declined by nearly 80% since then to around $400 million as of writing these lines, according to data from DeFiLama.
