Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer of Shiba Inu, has asserted that none of the investors, including Mechanism Capital and Shima Capital, are based in the United States, despite not disclosing their full entity names.

TREAT Token: Utility and Governance for Shiba Inu’s New Layer 3 Blockchain

Shiba Inu’s new privacy-focused Layer 3 blockchain will use the TREAT token as its “utility and governance token.” According to Kusama, TREAT will be the final non-stable token in the Shiba Inu ecosystem, with plans to introduce a new token called Shi later this year.

Platforms like CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap have displayed some trading volume for certain TREAT tokens, despite the TREAT token’s non-release. Kusama has labeled these instances as “scams,” highlighting that The Shiba Inu Mint S.A., a Panama corporation, will mint the authentic TREAT token.
