Technology products focused online marketplace Newegg will accept Shiba Inu (SHIB) cryptocurrency as a form of payment on its platform in time for the holidays.
The company made the news official on a grand scale with a massive digital out-of-home (DOOH) campaign displayed on The Reef, North America’s largest DOOH billboard in downtown Los Angeles.
The Reef wraps around three sides of a large office building spanning an entire Los Angeles city block. At 55 feet tall and 736 feet wide, the 40,000+ square foot DOOH billboard is one of the most impressive billboards in the world, and a central component of Newegg’s holiday promotional campaign.
Newegg Pioneer in Accepting Crypto
Newegg has a longstanding reputation as a pioneer in the crypto space. The company was the first major online retailer to accept Bitcoin as a payment method in 2014 through its partnership with BitPay. Subsequently, Newegg was among the first to accept Dogecoin in early 2021, followed by Litecoin in July 2021.
“We are always looking for ways to innovate the shopping experience on Newegg.com, and something our customers want is greater flexibility and options, including the ability to pay with a wide range of cryptocurrencies. Through our partnership with BitPay, we have the ability to move quickly and lead the market with flexible cryptocurrency payment options. To that end, we’re excited to offer SHIB as a payment option on Newegg.com.”Andrew Choi, Director of Brand Marketing at Newegg
Newegg will begin accepting SHIB in early December, further cementing Newegg.com as a preferred destination for online shoppers who want to pay with cryptocurrency.
