Ton of Projects Excited to Join Shibarium
The launch of the shibarium mainnet has been delayed for a while from its previous schedule. However, this hasn’t deterred new projects from showing interest in the platform.
Earlier this month, billion-dollar-platform Koyo announced its launch on Shibarium and stated that it “expects billions of dollars in volume, expect millions of dollars in rewards and in turn expect $SHIB burns to be in the millions with continuous burns.”
But Koyo is not the only platform to announce Shibarium integration. Recently, Enkrypt, a popular web3 wallet created by MyEtherWallet, announced its intentions to integrate the Shibarium protocol to its platform. With this, enkrypt joins other industry players willing to join the Layer 2 Shibarium network such as Excodus, Atomic Wallet, and CoinRabbit. The Unification Foundation upcoming tool UNODE looks to cater to decentralized applications (dApps) in the Shiba Inu ecosystem.
On the other hand, Shiba Inu’s native cryptocurrency (SHIB) continues to attract more players in the market. In fact, many are also comfortable with having SHIB as a payment option at their end. Recently, renowned glass sculptor Jack Storms announced that SHIB will be available as a payment option for exquisite glass sculptures once that the collection comes to Shibarium.
