While the crypto market continues to struggle, BitPay announces a new partnership that brings a popular meme coin into the spotlight once again. Berlin-headquartered shoe manufacturer Atheist Shoes is now accepting Shiba Inu payments, also offering a 10{a0ae49ae04129c4068d784f4a35ae39a7b56de88307d03cceed9a41caec42547} discount for all buyers until mid-December.

Introduced back in August 2020 as the “Dogecoin killer” by an anonymous person/group simply known as Ryoshi, Shiba Inu has been through ups and downs but is now following the general market trend. According to Coinbase, Shiba Inu has risen over 10{a0ae49ae04129c4068d784f4a35ae39a7b56de88307d03cceed9a41caec42547} in the last week and is currently at 71{a0ae49ae04129c4068d784f4a35ae39a7b56de88307d03cceed9a41caec42547} below the all-time high value of US$0.000032. On the other hand, Bitcoin has risen 5{a0ae49ae04129c4068d784f4a35ae39a7b56de88307d03cceed9a41caec42547} in the last week and currently sits at 76{a0ae49ae04129c4068d784f4a35ae39a7b56de88307d03cceed9a41caec42547} below its US$68,789.63 all-time high. However, some believe the recent partnership with Atheist Shoes could help boost Shiba Inu to a certain degree, at least for a while.

Atheist Shoes is a German brand founded in 2012 which is selling footwear designed in Berlin that is inspired by the Bauhaus minimalist aesthetic. Described as “really quite absurdly comfortable,” the brand’s products are handmade in Porto by a small team of 4 traditional shoemakers. More details about the craft behind Atheist shoes can be found on this page, while the online store is available here.

The partnership recently announced by crypto payment service provider BitPay on Twitter brings together Atheist Shoes and Shiba Inu, but even customers who are not paying using crypto can enjoy the 10{a0ae49ae04129c4068d784f4a35ae39a7b56de88307d03cceed9a41caec42547} discount code HANDMADECOMFY that will be active until December 16th. While various over-enthusiastic users are already claiming that Shiba Inu will go to the moon and hit US$1 or even US$2, this is obviously out of question. For now, we should highlight that Atheist Shoes is a niche brand with few customers, so the impact of this deal on the meme coin’s value will be minor in the best-case scenario.
