Shiba Inu’s lead developer praised the Unification Foundation, the team building Shibarium, adding that he has a plan.
Shiba Inu’s lead developer Shytoshi Kusama has praised Unification Foundation, the developers of SHIB’s layer-2 scaling solution Shibarium.
Kusama noted that the Unification Foundation has a fantastic and sharp team, adding that he is grateful to be working with them.
Kusama’s Recent Blog Post
The Shiba Inu team lead made this known after a Shiba Inu community member, Jolt, shared a recent discovery regarding his recent blog post.
Recall that Kusama released a blog post yesterday, introducing the much-anticipated Shiba Inu’s physical item, dubbed Shibacals.
As reported by The Crypto Basic, Shibacals will digitally authenticate collectibles using NFC chips. Notably, Kusama attached an image to the blog post, showing all products, partnerships, and tokens within the Shiba Inu ecosystem.
The products and partnerships in the image include Shibarium, Shibacals, Shibahub, SHIBOSHI, Welly Friends, ShibaSwap, Shiba Eternity, SHIB: The Metaverse, Bad Idea.ai, and Unification.
Although Kusama added the Unification Foundation to the list, Jolt expressed disappointment about its position in the image. It bears mentioning that Unification was placed at the bottom.
Kusama to Get a Blog for Unification
Commenting on the development, the user said Unification should be placed at the top since the company is building top Shiba Inu products like Shibarium, ShibaSwap V2, and the UNODE.
In response, Kusama said the Unification Foundation deserves its own blog, adding that he will get one for them. Kusama went further to praise the team at Unification Foundation for being fantastic and sharp.
The folks at @UnificationUND deserve and will get thier own blog. Fantastic and sharp team and I am grateful for them daily.

Unification’s Importance to Shiba Inu
Last year, Shiba Inu partnered with Unification in its quest to build Shibarium, an L2 scaling solution. Interestingly, the company has been essential to Shiba Inu’s ecosystem.
In February, Kusama urged Shiba Inu community members to take Unification’s announcements regarding Shibarium seriously. He made the remark after some SHIB enthusiasts said updates about Shibarium should only come from the Shiba Inu team.
Shibarium Mainnet Launch Close
Shiba Inu, alongside Unification, has made significant progress toward Shibarium’s mainnet launch. In a recent Telegram chat, Kusama confirmed that the Shibarium mainnet launch is near.
It is interesting to note that the Shiba Inu community eagerly anticipates the network’s mainnet launch. Notably, Shibarium Beta, dubbed Puppynet, which went live earlier this year, has received widespread adoption.
Per data from Puppyscan, over 16.94M addresses have been connected to the network, with a total transaction of 22.87 million completed thus far.
Kusama Says He Has a Plan
In other news, NFA Labs, the developers of Athena GPT, disclosed that Kusama chatted on its Telegram channel yesterday.
According to a screenshot of the chat, Kusama said he respects the NFA Labs’ team for everything it is working on.
He went further to say that he does not care about the fact that people hate his timing. Additionally, Kusama said he has a plan and is working on it. However, he did not reveal the details of his plan.
“…People just hate my timing, and I don’t really don’t care what they hate. I have a plan.”
Thank you, @ShytoshiKusama, for dropping by our Telegram. It's an honour to have your respect as we work together on achieving true DeFi.
NFA Labs, in alliance with #shib, is committed to bringing this vision to life, a vision that has always been denied to us.
Together we win.… pic.twitter.com/4AupHNvQtY
