This is especially true in relation to the NFT marketplaces, as they stand to benefit immensely from accepting SHIB payments. NOWPayments can easily assist NFT marketplaces in their implementation of SHIB as a payment method by providing them with its Custodial Recurring Payments tool.

Why Should NFT Marketplaces Try Shiba Inu?

Key points:

  • Shiba Inu is one of the biggest DeFi projects on the market.
  • SHIB can offer lots of benefits to NFT marketplaces, including global and anonymous payments.
  • NFT marketplaces can use NOWPayments to deploy SHIB payments.

What Is Shiba Inu?

About Shiba Inu

Shiba Inu ranks among cryptocurrencies with the highest market capitalization in history. It is not an exaggeration to say that Shiba Inu is truly a revolutionary cryptocurrency. First, it showed the world how meme tokens could easily outperform any major digital asset by simply being cute and awesome. Then it demonstrated that meme tokens could generate real utility with the introduction of its DEX and additional tokens, including LEASH and BONE. And now it is about to launch its own Layer-2 solution called Shibarium which will turn the project into a full-blown DeFi juggernaut.

Shiba Inu’s benefits

The SHIB token has a number of qualities making it suitable for use as a means of payment. For instance, thanks to blockchain technology, SHIB tokens can be transferred across the world in minutes without any limitations or delays. This feature of SHIB can be a real game changer for so many businesses that want to go global but refuse to put up with all the stress of managing several international bank accounts.

Shiba Inu is also private, so to use it you will not be asked to reveal your personal information or even share your email. This is exciting news for merchants that wish to offer their clients a more privacy-oriented payment solution. By giving your clients a chance to pay in SHIB, you simultaneously give them a chance to be anonymous.

Yet, perhaps, the most outstanding aspect of SHIB is the community of over one million people the coin has managed to accumulate over the years. In fact, it is one of the most passionate communities in crypto ever.  Businesses looking to engage SHIBArmy can do so by featuring SHIB as a payment method.

SHIB and NFT Marketplaces



The SHIBOSHIS are Shiba Inu’s first NFT collection. It consists of 10,000 one-of-a-kind avatar pixel art NFTs. The collection sold out almost immediately, as in 34 minutes it was already gone. LEASH holders were given the privilege of being the first to buy SHIBOSHIS during the minting phase. Today, the NFTs from the collection can be purchased on the secondary market on OpenSea.

Shib the Metaverse

Shib the Metaverse is another project of Shiba Inu where NFTs are set to play a pivotal role. It is a virtual space where all SHIBArmy members will be able to come together to create, learn, and play. Shiba Inu’s metaverse will consist of plots of land that users can already claim today. The metaverse will also make extensive use of SHIB allowing users to interact with different mechanics of the project via their tokens.

Any NFT marketplace can benefit from Shiba Inu’s ecosystem by integrating SHIB payments via NOWPayments. The Custodial Recurring Payments are a tool designed specifically for NFT marketplaces and similar platforms. It allows any marketplace to create billing accounts for its clients, which they can fund with SHIB. Here is how the flow goes:

  • You create accounts for NFT sellers.
  • They accept payments to these accounts.
  • You charge your fees by transferring funds from the sellers’ accounts to your account.
  • You make automatic payouts to the sellers’ wallets by request.

Basically, once your users receive payments, you gain the ability to charge them service fees and then transfer the remaining sum to their wallets.
