The Shiba Inu [SHIB] ecosystem witnessed several upgrades this year. The network welcomed the much-awaited Shibarium beta launch. Now that this is out, the community grew impatient about the roll-out of the mainnet. Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudonymous lead developer of Shiba Inu has been constantly bombarded with questions around the same. After staying mum for quite some time, Kusama took to Telegram to update the SHIB Army about the same.
Several members of the community on the Telegram channel “Shibarium Tech” have been requesting him to “excite” them occasionally. Therefore, Kusama responded to these inquiries about his whereabouts and recent activities with a rather blunt remark “You need me where I am.”
Another user said, “get us excited once in a while boss.” Kusama decided to share insights about the progress of Shibarium. He added, “head down working with an incredible team to do the impossible.” While this is barely any information, the crypto community did get excited.
This isn’t the first time that Kusama decided to leave the community hanging. When discussing his work on Shibarium with the community, Shytoshi prefers to use analogies. More recently changed his Twitter bio status to “in the lab” for a brief period of time. Later, he added a link to a song that was playing over and over again, he added, “Nothing like epic music while building.“
Shiba Inu follows the market and continues to slump
It looks like the above comments from Kusama did not entail much weight as they failed to move the SHIB market. The meme coin was trading for $0.00001032 with a 0.97% daily drop. The asset barely witnessed any major price fluctuations today. The ongoing slump increased the percentage of holders in a loss. At the asset’s current price, 69% of them were losing money. A dainty 28% were pocketing profits.
