  • Shibarium Beta was announced by SHIB developers last week.
  • Shiba Inu (SHIB) has seen constant growth in total wallet count.
  • Transaction volume for SHIB has doubled following the news.

Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) main developer, Shytoshi Kusama, dropped another riddle for the SHIB Army to solve. The mysterious leading developer changed his Twitter profile bio to “Quickly learning to play the flute before putting Shibarium in a heart shaped box with a bow.” Soon after, Crypto Twitter speculated on what Mr. Kusama means.

Furthermore, crypto influencer Crypto Bezos contemplates that “Shibarium in a heart shaped box with a bow” is likely a reference to the upcoming Valentine’s Day on February 14th, 2023. This comes just a week after a piece of Shibarium’s code was shared on GitHub, while the devs confirmed Shibarium Beta would drop in the coming days.
