Shiba Inu countdown results in website redesign, no updates on Shibarium
Shiba Inu, Dogecoin’s largest competitor and a leading meme coin, recently revamped its website. Developers announced a mysterious countdown on their website and the Shiba Inu community anticipated the launch of Shibarium, its highly awaited layer-2 scaling solution.
Shibarium is expected to increase the utility of the Shiba Inu token and the community anticipated the scaling solution’s launch after the mysterious countdown. Shiba Inu added 10,410 new holders to its community in the past two weeks alone, based on data from Etherscan.io.
Shiba Inu holders
However, the hype has now died down despite Shiba Inu’s lead developer Shytoshi Kusama applauding Trophias and his team for the website’s new design. Kusama took to Twitter to apologize to the Shiba Inu community for the misunderstanding. While the countdown was meant for the re-design, a large percentage of SHIB holders and community members expected the Shibarium launch.
Shibarium is key to Shiba Inu’s growth as it scales the meme coin, and reduces the congestion on the base chain – Ethereum. This could act as a bullish trigger for both of the ecosystem’s tokens: SHIB and BONE.
Please note that I am not responsible for every detail of Shib (i.e. website). So I applaud Trophias and his team for the new design and totally understand how the countdown could have been misleading. Although not in control of that, I apologize for any confusion. Stay tuned.— Shytoshi Kusama™ (@ShytoshiKusama) December 20, 2022
