Memecoin Shiba Inu Plans To Launch It's Own Blockchain Soon – India Times

Shiba Inu, the cryptocurrency that started off as a ‘memecoin’ around August 2020, is aiming to shrug off this tag and launch its own blockchain called Shibarium, along with its own Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) in 2022.

The Blockchain Shibarium is expected to provide Shiba Inu users with new functionalities such as reduced gas fees. For the uninitiated, the gas fee is a payment made to process and validate transactions in a crypto ecosystem and has supposedly become a huge problem for the blockchain.

Creators of Shiba Inu also aim to launch their own stable coin on the blockchain, which will be called SHI and run its gas fees on the site. This step could actually improve the network’s performance, besides establishing Shiba Inu as a vital digital coin. But there is no specific timeline yet for the launch of this new development.
At present, Shiba Inu functions on the Ethereum blockchain, and every transaction on Ethereum costs over $9.1, which the new blockchain Shibarium aims to bring down.

Looking back at 2021, Shiba Inu was reportedly the most viewed and most popular crypto in 2021, beating the likes of Bitcoin and even Ethereum, as per cryptocurrency price-tracking website CoinMarketCap. 
As per the website, Shiba Inu has received more than 188 million views, whereas Bitcoin received 145 million views. Dogecoin, which too received its fair share of fame during 2021, ranked third with 107 million views.
Interestingly, last month in December 2021, Shiba Inu developers announced one of its most ambitious projects,  Oshiverse. Planned for a launch on the layer-2 Shibarium chain, Oshiverse aims to help the token compete in a new and booming crypto niche.
