EXCLUSIVE – Shytoshi Kusama Teases SHIB’s Future Following Ethereum’s ETF Approval

May 23, 2024

Shytoshi Kusama, the enigmatic lead developer of Shiba Inu (SHIB), has sparked excitement within the crypto community by teasing significant future developments for SHIB following Ethereum’s recent ETF approval.

In a celebratory tweet, Kusama congratulated Ethereum on its groundbreaking achievement and hinted at the possibility of SHIB pursuing a similar regulatory milestone. His message, which encouraged followers to “stay tuned,” suggests that major developments are on the horizon for Shiba Inu, fueling speculation and anticipation among investors and enthusiasts.

Just minutes after news broke that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved Ethereum, the world’s second largest crypto asset by market capitalization, as part of an exchange-traded fund (ETF), Kusama made a cryptic X post.

Shiba Inu’s prominent figure extended congratulations to the Ethereum team for the successful approval of its ETF. The message sparked speculation about the potential for similar advancements for other digital currencies, specifically mentioning Shiba Inu ($SHIB). Interestingly, Kusama seemingly hinted at exciting developments on the horizon without divulging details, urging followers to stay alert for upcoming news.

Congrats to our frens at @ethereum on the ETF APPROVAL! Does this pave the way for #SHIB? I’ll let you decide… I’ll stay focused on what we have coming. #STAYTUNED,” Kusama’s X post read.

Unfortunately, the lead developer did not elaborate in his X post. The lack of detail in Kusama’s tweet has led to widespread speculation about upcoming projects or initiatives for Shiba Inu.

However, The Shib Daily has obtained an exclusive statement from him, where he highlighted the significant progress made towards a Shib ETF following the recent approval of Ethereum’s ETF. He emphasized that while this is a major achievement for both Ethereum and Shiba Inu, the approval is specifically targeted at the U.S. market, with the global market presenting a broader scope.

“An ETF for Shib is now one step closer due to the approval of Ethereum’s ETF. This is a significant milestone for both ETH and Shib. However, it is important to remember that this approval is primarily focused on the crucial U.S. market, and the global market is vast and varied,” Kusama said in an exclusive statement to The Shib Daily.

The Shiba Inu community is still excited from recent major announcements by its development team. Shibarium, the layer-2 scalability solution of the Shib ecosystem, has just completed its hard fork, marking a significant milestone. This was followed by another pivotal announcement regarding the integration of ShibaSwap, the community’s decentralized cryptocurrency exchange (DEX) platform. 

These developments highlight the ongoing advancements within the Shiba Inu ecosystem, fueling anticipation and excitement among its supporters.

The approval of Ethereum ETFs by the SEC could have a significant impact on Shiba Inu (SHIB). This regulatory milestone signals a growing acceptance of digital assets within mainstream finance, potentially paving the way for other cryptocurrencies like SHIB to achieve similar recognition. 

As Ethereum sets a precedent, SHIB could benefit from increased institutional interest and investor confidence. The success of Ethereum ETFs might also inspire the Shiba Inu community to push for their own ETF, leveraging the regulatory framework established by Ethereum’s achievement.

The Shiba Inu community, known as the SHIB Army, has initiated a petition to Grayscale, one of the largest cryptocurrency asset managers, to consider creating a Shiba Inu ETF. The petition underscores the community’s enthusiasm and belief in the potential of SHIB to become a significant player in the cryptocurrency market.

If successful, this petition could further elevate SHIB’s profile and attract more institutional investors, solidifying its place in the evolving landscape of digital assets.
