Travala has added support for the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency
Cryptocurrency-focused travel company Travala has announced that it is now accepting cryptocurrency Shiba Inu as a form of payment after its community managed to win a poll against rival coin Floki Inu.
This means that the red-hot cryptocurrency can now be used for booking over 2.2 million hotels and accommodations around the globe.
Dogecoin, the original cryptocurrency of the joke, was added to the list of available cryptocurrencies in early May.
In July, Travala launched Dtravel, a decentralized home rental service that aims to compete with incumbents of the likes of Airbnb. Its ownership is managed with the help of the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) model.
The service launched in 2017 and quickly gained popularity with crypto-savvy travelers.
Last year, Travala merged with Binance-invested competitor TravelbyBit.
