Shibarium Release Date: Shytoshi Suggests Shibarium Could Be Released Soon

08/30/2022By: C, Fiona

The most exciting new feature of the Shiba Inu community is the Shibarium layer-2 network that SHIB plans to launch soon. ShibaSwap’s principal developer, Shytoshi Kusama, recently chimed in to address investors’ constant requests for an official delivery date. On Twitter, a user tagged Shytoshi, asking for a release clue for Shibarium. The developer complied.

“Shytoshi Kusama, May we get some clues/hints? My brain is addicted to thinking about Shibarium,” the user added.

Shytoshi responded to the user a few hours later with a graphic suggesting the release of Shibarium “soon.”

The lead developer teased what appears to be a Shiba Inu Eternity card game by posting an image of the game alongside the word “soon” in large, bold font. Below, we discuss another “soon” that appears on the character’s clothing, and we see that he or she is working feverishly on it.

The card also has the text, “destroy two random enemy fighters at the end of the opponent’s turn.”


If what Shytoshi tweeted is to be believed, the release of Shibarium could be closer than we think. Shibarium’s chief developer, however, did not provide any sort of estimated delivery date.

Unification, the company constructing the layer-2 network, has nonetheless stated that the Shibarium public testnet will be made available in the third quarter of 2022. As a result, the Shibarium white paper could be ready earlier than September 30th, 2022.
