Shibarium Validators Wanted as Lead Dev Gives Musical Clue

Shytoshi Kusama invites the Shiba Inu community to “build first” via the freshly-built Shibarium Tech site.

  • SHIB Token launched the new Shibarium Tech website with an intake form.
  • Validators, delegators, and creators are invited to collaborate with the L2 Shibarium.
  • Shibarium Beta launch date unconfirmed, Shytoshi Kusama drops a musical hint.

Shibarium’s rollout progress was recently presented in detail in a series of blog posts by Shytoshi Kusama, the leading SHIB Token team developer. Meanwhile, the Shiba Inu (SHIB) community, known as SHIB Army, is drawing sketches of upcoming projects on the Layer-2 scaling solution.

In such a manner, the two-year-old memecoin gains independence from Ethereum’s blockchain and enters a new era. With the new Shibarium Telegram channel reaching 31,146 members in the first month, most of the community likely can’t wait to “build first.” Currently, validators for Shibarium Beta are needed the most.

Shytoshi Kusama’s 7 Day Theory

In his new Twitter bio, Shiba Inu’s main developer, Shytoshi Kusama, pinpoints, “Don’t assume. Be wise. Notice who says what and what they are trying to accomplish. Don’t assume. PLAN, PLOT, STRATEGIZE; Then build first. #2pacvoice.”


The leading developer refers to Makaveli’s “Bomb First (My Second Reply).” The 1996 rap song performed by Makaveli The Don, more popularly known as Tupac Shakur, includes the summarizing lyrics “Plan. Plot. Strategize. Then Bomb First” in a quest for truth to prevail against all odds.

Makaveli’s Influence on Shibarium

The song serves as an intro to The 7 Day Theory, the only album by the iconic rapper and actor that has a different alias than 2Pac, unexpectedly released with two music videos two months after the musician’s violent murder in September 1996 in Las Vegas after the infamous Mike Tyson fight.

Ultimately, Shy Kusama’s reference to the timeless Hip Hop icon might suggest that Shibarium, the Layer-2 solution, could drop out of the blue just like “Bomb First,” for which Tupac invited his team members, a couple of unknown producers & his young band The Outlawz.


In the case of the SHIB Army, a warm invitation to join Shibarium had already been presented on the brand-new Shiba Tech website. Can Shibarium exceed expectations just like the surprise album The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory did back in late 1996?

On The Flipside:

Why you should care: 

Shibarium, The Layer-2 solution, is the biggest project by SHIB Token so far, while “The Don Killuminati: 7 Day Theory” is one of the most critically acclaimed works from the best-selling hip hop artist of all time Tupac Shakur.
