Shiba Inu continues to add utility
Shiba Inu continues to add more utility in an attempt to give up its “meme currency” status. Early 2021 saw the launch of the decentralized exchange ShibaSwap, which brought with it decentralized finance services (DeFi) like betting and loans.
Then, in December 2021, SHIB developer Shytoshi Kusama hinted at the development of a Shiba Inu-centric metaverse, “Oshiverse,” based on Shiba Inu Games. Oshiverse would be based on Shibarium, a Layer 2 solution built on top of Ethereum for Shiba Inu.
