The surge in ETH whale interest in Shiba Inu is attributed to the upcoming release of Shibarium Beta. As reported earlier by The Crypto Basic, Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer of Shiba Inu, has dispelled rumors that the launch might be on Valentine’s Day, stating that he cannot provide a fixed launch date at this time as the launch is not an on/off switch.
However, in a recent telegram chat, Kusama hinted that the launch could take place before May this year. This hint came after a community member speculated that the launch could happen on Valentine’s Day. Kusama responded to the inquiry lightheartedly and stated: “MAY be….just kidding, it’ll be out before May, lol”.
As of press time, Shiba Inu is trading at the price of $0.00001236, down -4.38% over the last day, with a 24-hour trading volume of $297,101,396 ($297.10M).
