The developers behind the popular meme coin Shiba Inu have sparked excitement and speculation with a cryptic riddle teasing the cover of the project’s upcoming magazine release.
A tweet from the official Shiba Inu account posed a mystery about who will “grace the cover” of the second edition of the recently launched Shib Magazine. The post offered a hint that the unknown figure is a “renowned athlete.” 3,000 free NFTs of the edition’s cover will be given away to the SHIB community.
The teaser tweet comes after last week’s launch of the inaugural issue of Shib Magazine, with free inaugural cover NFTs awarded to the first 1,000 registered readers.
The publication provides regular updates on innovations in crypto, specifically within the SHIB ecosystem. The riddle has sparked a flurry of guesses from the avid SHIB community, speculating on which famous athlete could appear on the upcoming cover.
Shiba Inu developer outlines plans for new integrations
Beyond the magazine hype, lead SHIB developer Shytoshi Kusama recently emerged from “quiet mode” to outline plans for new Shibarium integrations. Shibarium is the Layer 2 network built to support SHIB and reduce gas fees.
Kusama has been in talks about integrating Shibarium with major centralized crypto exchanges. An AI chatbot is now available for SHIB users to interact directly with developers. Kusama said the team is focusing on building new projects on top of Shibarium.
The increased communication and project development point to renewed momentum for the previously stagnant SHIB project. The meme coin exploded in popularity in late 2020 and 2021. But 2022’s crypto bear market erased most gains, with SHIB still down massively from its all-time high.
