On Saturday, CryptoGlobe reported that digital banking app Revolut had added dog-themed meme coin Shiba Inu (SHIB) to the list of crypto assets on its exchange platform. The Revolut app currently boasts a user base that numbers 18 million different individuals.
Not only did other media outlets run with the original story, several Twitter users posted tweets asserting that the Shiba Ina addition to Revolut had in fact occurred, such as this message from last Tuesday.
Conversely, the company Revolut was strangely silent on the topic with no official announcement of any kind about a possible Shiba listing. The only thing even remotely close to an allusion of SHIB, was when Revolut recently changed the cover image on its Twitter account page to an image of a Shiba Inu dog with the words “NEVER SETTLE” as pictured below.
Using the customer support feature on the Revolut app, we inquired about whether or not Shiba Inu was available for crypto trading but did not hear back by the time of this writing. Shiba Inu is available on various centralized and decentralized crypto exchanges including: Binance, Huobi, Coinbase, Gate.io, Uniswap, and OKX.
As of this writing, SHIB is priced at $0.00002394 down almost 10% over the past 24 hours according to CoinMarketCap, and down 73% since it hit a record high of $ 0.00008845 in October 2021.
