Crypto Exchange Kraken to List Shiba Inu, Fulfilling Nov. 1 Twitter Promise as SHIB’s Fortunes Fall

Cryptocurrency exchange Kraken will support the popular, Ethereum-based memecoin shiba inu (SHIB), which is expected to begin trading Tuesday, the company said in a blog post on its website Monday.

Following an uproar among SHIB supporters, the company said there was “more work” to do as it moved through its token listing review process.Kraken said Monday the minimum, required deposit is 373,000 SHIB, and that the coin will be tradable against the U.S. dollar and euro, with a trading minimum of 50,000 SHIB.SHIB margin and futures trading will not be available for investors, the exchange said.SHIB jumped over 16% at one point Monday as the broader cryptocurrency market continued to rally following Friday’s sell-off.
