Kraken’s had previously promised to list SHIB on November 1st. However uproar from the Shiba Inu community caused a setback in the launch.
Other exchanges remain hesitant to list the alleged ‘Doge killer’ over regulatory concerns, despite increasing pressure from their users. US trading app Robinhood was requested to list SHIB after a Change.org petition gathered over half a million signatures this month. COO Christine Brown declined the request and said that their strategy “is different than a lot of the other players out there who are racing to list as many assets as possible right now.”
At the time of publishing, SHIB is the 11th-largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of $27.11 billion, just behind Dogecoin.
