Tangem Announces Partnership for SHIB-Themed Cold Wallets, Strengthening Shiba Inu's Ecosystem
Tangem, a prominent player in the blockchain industry, has announced it will unleash SHIB-themed cold wallets. These innovative card-shaped vaults are set to become essential tools for safeguarding tokens within the Shiba Inu ecosystem. Pre-orders for these cold wallets will commence on May 29, igniting anticipation among SHIB enthusiasts worldwide.
The introduction of SHIB-themed cold wallets marks a significant milestone for the Shiba Inu community, aligning with their ambition to establish partnerships with influential blockchain players.
Earlier this year, on April 26, 2023, NOWPayments, a leading payment gateway, announced its plans to integrate Shibarium, a blockchain platform developed by the Shiba Inu project. NOWPayments aims to become the first payment gateway to adopt Shibarium, demonstrating its commitment to supporting tokens and projects built on this innovative infrastructure. As a result of this integration, NOWPayments will enable businesses and individuals to accept payments using Shibarium's Layer 2 solution, providing an extensive ecosystem of tools for all things SHIB.
Shiba Inu, a meme coin that emerged in August 2020 under the pseudonym "Ryoshi," quickly gained traction and value within the crypto community. While its origins were initially shrouded in mystery, influential figures such as Elon Musk and Vitalik Buterin amplified its popularity through headlines and tweets. Although Vitalik Buterin was long rumored to be the creator of Shiba Inu, he denied such claims during an interview on the Lex Fridman podcast on June 5, 2021.
Shiba Inu has always been ambitious to expand its ecosystem. It has launched the Shiba Metaverse, NFTs, and decentralized exchanges. At the heart of this ecosystem is the Shiba token, which serves as the primary token within various Shiba Inu projects and applications.
