Shibarium Is Now Shiba Inu’s Main Focus, Says Lead Developer


Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudonymous chief creator of Shiba Inu, stated that his efforts is currently concentrated on Shibarium, a Layer-2 solution, following the completion of the Shiba Eternity game and accompanying players’ guide. Kusama claimed in a tweet today that he will explain in a blog post that will shortly be published why his primary focus is now on Shibarium and other “TREATS.”

“In my next blog, I’ll explain what’s happening behind the scenes and why my focus now turns to Shibarium and other TREATs for the ShibArmy,” the lead developer of Shiba Inu said.

Kusama Replies to Critics

However, some detractors took the time to criticise Kusama for originally neglecting Shibarium in favour of Shiba Eternity. Shibarium should have been Kusama’s primary priority from the beginning, according to Twitter user SHADIE. “Shibarium should have been your main focus from the start, isn’t that why you hired game developers???”

@ChrisSu86572773 criticize: “Aside from SHADIE, other Shiba Inu enthusiasts also shared similar sentiments. Shibarium is what we need right now, not game. This is a community project, not a personal project, tell us about shibarium, stop keeping us in the dark. We are part of Shib Ecosystem.”

In response to the critiques, Kusama claimed that they were mere fabrications because he had always been quite open about his objectives.

“It amazes me how many people put words in my mouth. I’ve said this many times: Game -> Shibarium -> Game on Shibarium,” Kusama said. 

Since he has finished the step one, the Shiba Inu lead developer claimed that he does not comprehend why or how Shib is not progressing. He emphasised that further information on Shibarium would be provided in the next blog post.

“So when I say “I’m done with Step 1” I get why no Shibarium? Lol. *sigh*. The blog will update on all things Shib (from my limited perspective).

Features of Shibarium

Shibarium plays a significant role in the environment of the Shiba Inu. In terms of scalability, security, and operability, the layer-2 scaling solution is anticipated to have characteristics that are comparable to those of the Ethereum scaling platform Polygon. Once the L2 scaling platform eventually goes live, all Shiba Inu products, including SHIB, ShibaSwap, Shiboshi, etc., will shift to Shibarium.
