Shiba Inu (SHIB) to Showcase SHIB: The Metaverse at SXSW XR Experience

Shytoshi Kusama, the mysterious leading developer of the Shiba Inu (SHIB) team, presented a riddle to his 868,000 Twitter followers. “During fall the tree may have only a few leaves, but then spring appears,” he said. It turns out that Shibarium, in this context, is a “pine tree.” 

Mr. Kusama refers to his popular canine token, as SHIB managed to sail through an intense crypto winter. Just like how “pines survive and thrive during the harshest winters.” In response to this, SHIB holder Domenclature pointed out that many of those tree branches are at the Shiboshis X Buggati Twitter Space in the form of limited edition NFTs.

SHIB’s developer team confirmed that the phased rollout of the Layer-2 scaling solution, Shibarium, begins with documentation. As the 13-minute long blog post surfaced, the SHIB Army expects to see Shibarium go live in the coming days.

SHIB Devs to Present WAGMI Temple on Stage

The Twitter riddle from Shytoshi Kusama comes just a couple of days after Shiba Inu’s team proudly announced that they were invited to this year’s edition of the SXSW XR Experience, the VR/AR experience showcase in Austin, Texas. The annual VR/AR technology summit will be divided into three days, between March 6-9, 2023.

Furthermore, the SHIB Token developer team will have its own stand at the conference, while the highlight of the upcoming tech conference will be the first presentation of WAGMI (We’re All Gonna Make It). The WAGMI Temple is the first installment in the SHIB: The Metaverse Web3 project, which includes 11 HUBs designed for different activities inside the metaverse.
