Shiba Inu’s ecosystem token Bone slipped below the $1 mark on Tuesday ahead of the Shibarium layer-2 network’s documentation launch. Bone traded under $1 nearly two weeks ago but quickly recovered in price during the initial days of November.
However, the token saw a downturn today falling $1.07 to $0.90 in the day’s trade. The token is down double digits today and shed 10% in the indices after a sharp slump.
The fall comes despite the lead developer of ShibaSwap, Shytoshi Kusama announcing that his “focus” is now on Shibarium. In his latest blog, Shytoshi said, “I will now shift my focus to advertising the game, the blockchain version, and Shibarium with Kaal as we are quickly approaching the Beta launch”.
However, Shytoshi has not announced a tentative launch date for the Shibarium documentation.
Unification, the firm that’s building Shibarium had previously revealed in a blog that the documentation will be out before Q3 of 2022. Nonetheless, things didn’t go as planned and Unification released another blog confirming that the documentation will be out “sometime shortly thereafter”.
It is not known when Shibarium documentation will be launched. The delay in the documentation release is dampening Bone’s prospects in the indices making it slump to weekly lows.
