Coinbase Announces Onchain Summer

Shiba Inu Lead Developer Calls It Copycat

In response to this announcement, the lead developer of Shiba Inu (SHIB) – Kusama – called it a copycat. Less than a month ago, Shiba Inu had announced their own Summer of Shibarium which carries some similarities with that of Coinbase’s Onchain Summer name.

Shibarium Beta Bridge Goes Live

The team behind Shiba Inu has been busy at work too and recently launched the beta version of the Shibarium bridge for public testing as part of their layer-2 launch plans inching closer.

Recent Market Demand for SHIB

The memecoin SHIB has seen renewed market demand over the past few weeks after Binance had announced that they will soon list BONE as a collateralized asset which is based on SHIB tokenomics. This news caused the price of SHIB to spike 5%.
