Shiba Inu community excited about Shibarium launch
The release of Shibarium was announced in mid-January and now the statement “I am in the situation room“has sparked speculation among the Shiba Inu community that this could be a sign of a new Shibarium announcement.
Shytoshi also changed her location status on Twitter to “Situation Room“. This term describes a room in a government building, police base or military base. Where people in authority find out the latest information about problems and make crucial decisions about what to do next.
The Shiba Inu Price Surge
Shiba Inu is the second most popular meme coin on the crypto-currency market. According to CoinMarketCap (CMC), the meme coin is currently trading around $0.00001176 with a one-day trading volume of $359,825,062.
SHIB’s trading volume jumped nearly 60% on the day. Interestingly, over the past 4 weeks, Shiba Inu has gone from $0.0000080 to $0.00001176, making it one of the best performers of the month.
Follow the leader and get your popcorn ready!
The reason for SHIB’s massive price hike lies in Telegram messages from the lead developer of Shiba Inu. Shytoshi recently advised the SHIB community to “keep the popcorn handy“.
Shiba enthusiasts decided that this was another clue related to the launch of Shibarium, which may or may not take place on February 14, Valentine’s Day. The speculations are related to the tweet where Kusama stated that he was preparing to release the product in “a heart-shaped box“.
