Shiba Inu (SHIB) Main Developer Drops Shibarium Hint, Crypto Twitter Reacts

Shytoshi Kusama, the mysterious leader of the Shiba Inu (SHIB) developer team, alluded to Shibarium again by changing his profile pic and profile bio. The bio proudly says “close,” which coincides with several crypto influencers sharing that Shibarium’s testing is nearly done and the Layer-2 solution is getting ready for launch.

The Romantic Side of Shytoshi Kusama

Moreover, the leading developer of the extremely popular memecoin left a note on his profile: “On the first day.. My True Love gave to me..”. Soon after, the SHIB Army joined in to solve the mystery. Popular social influencer Lucie Sasinkova had a private conversation with Shytoshi Kusama soon after the riddle appeared.


According to the latest tweet, Sasinkova asked Kusama: “Who is your true love? He replied: You, my baby.” Sasinkova added: “Back to the puzzle: His true love? $SHIB. Gave him a new family #SHIBARMY.”

Interestingly, the #15 ranked memecoin SHIB pumped 4.20% right after Kusama’s move but is yet to reclaim the key resistance levels of $0.00001. At press time, the canine crypto trades at $0.00000913, according to CoinGecko.

2023 Will Be Big for Shiba Inu’s Ecosystem

Further on, the crypto influencer revealed a crucial detail – Shibarium is close to launching. The Layer-2 solution might go live between January and February of 2023. Indeed, Shibarium is the last piece of the puzzle needed to transform the two-year-old memecoin into a self-sufficient ecosystem.

On Shibarium’s launch, Shiba Inu’s Bone ShibaSwap (BONE) will be used for gas fees. Besides, the launch of Shibarium would enable the team to introduce other upcoming products, including SHIB: The Metaverse and $SHI stablecoin.


As Shytoshi Kusama received an invitation from The World Economic Forum, Shiba Inu’s metaverse might pave the way for other metaverse projects. SHIB: The Metaverse team’s Metaverse Advisor, Marcie Jastrow, just returned from Miami Beach, where she delivered a speech at the Immerse Global Summit 2022.

On the Flipside

  • Shytoshi Kusama previously gave hints on the launch of Shibarium, which is being developed in collaboration with xFund.
  • While saying it’s “in testing mode,” the Layer-2 was delayed from the previously given launch date of October 26th, 2022.
