The Shiba Inu community-appointed lead Shytoshi Kusama has changed his Twitter location to the U.S., eliciting speculations among community members.
Shiba Inu (SHIB) lead developer, Shytoshi Kusama, has again modified his Twitter location. The community-appointed SHIB leader recently changed his location to Denham Springs, a city in the American state of Louisiana. This latest modification has elicited speculations.
Notably, the Shiba Inu ecosystem is at a pivotal point, as the community anticipates the launch of numerous projects, chief among them being Shibarium. Amid the anticipation, Kusama has continued to drop hints on the progress of these developmental efforts.
One common method Kusama leverages is constantly modifying his personal information on Twitter, specifically his Twitter bio and location. Consequently, some members of the Shiba Inu community have kept their eyes peeled for such changes.
Kuro, a Japan-based Shiba Inu community influencer, first called public attention to the latest location change, presenting an opening for speculations.

Expectedly, the development has sparked reactions, albeit at a slow pace. It remains to be seen if the developer is really in Louisiana, and the purpose for his visit. Notably, the last time Kusama’s location change garnered interest from the community, the SHIB developer had moved to Japan, as The Crypto Basic previously reported.
Shortly after, Shiba Inu achieved a massive milestone in Japan, securing a listing on the leading Japanese financial institution SBI Group on June 28. However, there is little evidence to suggest that Kusama’s presence in Japan influenced this achievement.
Sustained Shiba Inu Developments
Despite this uncertainty, community members have often attributed Kusama’s continuous location changes to upcoming developments in the ecosystem. Yesterday, The Crypto Basic disclosed that Kusama had emphasized the development of more projects following the launch of Shibarium.
Recall that the Shiba Inu project lead confirmed in a blog post released last week that Shibarium would eventually be unveiled in August at the Futurist Conference in Toronto, Canada.
The upcoming layer-2 network for the Shiba Inu ecosystem is expected to expedite burns, bolster adoption and introduce more utility to the ecosystem. It remains the most highly-anticipated event, with community members also watching out for the launch of the Metaverse and ShibaSwap 2.0.
