The season’s meme coin, Shiba Inu (SHIB), has been on the market since its bullish rise, which kicked off last month. The new month is now very optimistic for SHIB investors, as new reports suggest that the giant Tesla may be interested in payments with this crypto asset.
Will Tesla accept payments in SHIB and BTC?
According to new developments, it has been found that the payment processing code “SHIB” is placed next to BTC on the company’s website. The code was not made available to the general public and is under the heading “Apple pay”. Many market players are now beginning to believe that a company might want to accept an asset as payment.
The popular personality of the cryptworld “Watcher.Guru” is one of the observers who shared the above screenshot on Twitter, adding that although the code may be deleted soon, its legitimacy can be confirmed at this time.
“We can confirm that Tesla has placed SHIB next to BTC in the payment processing system code on its website. It is currently not publicly accessible and can be deleted at any time. “
Trolls Elon Musk Shib?
The code was also confirmed by a developer from ShibSwap. However, he notes that there are two other reasons why the code appears on the company’s website, apart from the fact that it can be accepted as payment. Since Elon Musk has previously revealed that he never held any Shiba Inu tokens and is known to like “troll” cryptocurrencies, which he does not support, the developer assumes that Musk or a Tesla representative trolls SHIB. It may also be the case that “SHIBA” is a code name used for another currency with the theme of dogs.
While the public is waiting for confirmation or rebuttal from Tesla or Elon Musk himself, SHIB bulls remain active as recent short-term losses correct upwards.
However, a handful of BTC supporters, such as Mark Moss, are confident that Shiba Inu’s growth will be short-lived. His tweet reflects the sentiment of many other key characters.
“In 2017, you had to buy BTC first and then exchange it for an alto, all denominated in BTC, creating a BTC pump and then an altcoin season. Today, people first buy DOGE and SHIB and then eventually and sometimes painfully find their way to BTC. “
