Lead developers of Shiba Inu Shytoshi Kusama tweeted this week about his meeting with Unification, the builders of Shibarium.
Kusama wrote about Shibarium as
“Aligning Onboarding Finalizing. Soon Very Soon.”
SHIB BPP, a Shiba Inu- focused Twitter account, shared screenshots of Discord messages from Shytoshi Kusuma and SHIB developer SHIB Trophias.
Kusuma was saying in the screenshots that he was “putting a nice bow on it.” which many people assumed to be a reference to Shibarium. SHIB Trophias further commented that there will be “docs, then beta.”

What Exactly is Shibarium?
Anonymous Shiba Inu creator Ryoshi in May 2021, proposed a layer 2 solution. A framework that will be built on Ethereum and allows it to benefit from the network’s underlying security and infrastructure.
But being an L2 solution, it ought to be faster and offer lower transaction fees compared to current rates.
Shibarium could be a reason for the next cryptocurrency explosion in 2023.
