Crypto Market in Bewilderment: Shiba Inu Hinting Shibarium Layer-2 Launch Before May

• Shytoshi Kusama, lead developer of Shiba Inu, hinted that the highly anticipated Shibarium layer-2 blockchain could launch as soon as before May.
• Despite the potential hint given by Kusama, tokens backing the soon-to-be-launched layer 2 networks are still in the red along with other altcoins in the market.
• An influencer named Lucie shared a screenshot of a conversation between Kusama and a person where he jokingly suggested that maybe Shibarium will be released on Valentine’s day.

Shibarium Layer-2 Blockchain

The crypto market is currently abuzz with speculation surrounding the upcoming launch of Shiba Inu’s Shibarium layer-2 blockchain. Lead developer Shyoshi Kusama recently provided a hint on its potential launch date – before May 2021.

Excitement Among SHIB Community

The updated hint has further stoked excitement among members of the SHIB community who have been eagerly awaiting this much anticipated catalyst which could move the price of SHIB significantly higher.

Kusama Urges Community To Be Sympathetic

Kusama has urged members of the community to be more sympathetic and read the room as one of its developers recently lost his father. He asked them to focus on mourning instead of worrying about when Shibarium would be released.

SHIB Plummeting Despite Launch Date Hint

Despite the potential hint given by Kusama, tokens backing Shibarium are still very much in the red along with other altcoins in the market over recent weeks. SHIB started 2021 positively but is now struggling with shorters over recent days due to regulatory scrutiny faced by cryptocurrencies across markets.


Shiba Inu’s highly anticipated Shibarium layer-2 blockchain is expected to potentially launch sometime before May 2021, according to its lead developer Shyoshi Kusama. Although there is an air of excitement within its community, tokens backing it remain largely bearish against broader markets despite speculations surrounding its projected release date.
