SHIB solves the problem of chargeback fraud

One of the primary reasons why many businesses decide to switch to using crypto payments is the lack of chargebacks on the blockchain. Businesses, in particular, frequently suffer considerable losses as a result of falling prey to various types of fraudsters that exploit the chargeback functionality provided by most banks.

Blockchain networks, like the Ethereum network or BNB Chain, do not have central authority capable of imposing chargebacks or other forms of third-party interference. As a result, all SHIB transactions are peer-to-peer and cannot be reversed once initiated. Businesses that choose to accept Shiba Inu payments can protect themselves from chargeback fraud and save money.

Therefore, you can send both a dollar worth of SHIB and one million dollars’ worth of SHIB.  There is no limit to the number of transactions that a single address may conduct.
