Fully Integrated SHIB Restaurant Set to Open in Australia

Touted as ‘Australia’s first #cryptoDINER’, a Shiba Inu themed restaurant called Shiba Wings is set to open on the Gold Coast and will accept crypto payments in exchange for its menu of hot wings, burgers and beers.

A tweet and video by Australian-based SHIB crypto enthusiast SHIB Planet revealed the new restaurant would use the NowPayments platform to accept cryptocurrency as payment. He also suggested the owners were open to future integration with Shibarium — the layer 2 upgrade to improve the scalability of SHIB on the Ethereum blockchain.

Shiba Inu (SHIB) is considered a ‘meme coin’ — tokens inspired by popular culture and internet jokes— and was created on the back of the success of Dogecoin. Although it seems much of its appeal comes simply from the cute imagery of the Shiba Inu dog breed, SHIB is currently ranked 13 in market value by CoinMarketCap.

Shiba Wings ‘Coming Soon’ to Surfers Paradise

According to Shiba Wings’ social media, the diner will open “soon” and will be located on Cavill Avenue in the Gold Coast suburb of Surfers Paradise. A number of mock-ups of the restaurant’s decor shared online show prominent Shiba Inu and Bitcoin imagery and a market ticker displaying crypto prices.

Other Shiba Inu branded food ventures have been launched around the world including burger joints in Italy and a ‘Shiba food park’ in Venezuela.
