Robinhood and Shiba Inu

Robinhood’s expansion of Shiba Inu trading to New York customers comes a month after the company launched the Android version of its SHIB-supported self-custody wallet. Moreover, the positive development comes about two years after the exchange added support for the canine-themed token. 

SHIB was listed on Robinhood in 2022. However, it restricted New York State residents from buying and selling the token on its platform following the harsh regulatory conditions in the region. 

Recall that Kucoin was forced to close its shop in the city after New York’s market regulator accused the exchange of operating without registration, collecting $22 million in settlement. Thus, the SHIB trading development suggests that Robinhood may have satisfied the city’s regulatory requirements.
