Per Lunar Crash, SHIB’s social mentions reached 23,520, while its social engagements were 252.24 million over the last 24 hours. Its weekly performance showed that its social engagement rose 17.94% to 2 billion, and its mentions grew 11.13% to 171,370. SHIB had 1,160 unique social contributors per hour for the token.

When Shibarium?

On May 24, an official of the Shiba Inu ecosystem Lucie said the Shibarium’s mainnet launch should be expected before the end of the year. Lucie said Shibarium developer Shibarium 1 guessed that the mainnet launch would be in August, while Shiba Inu lead Shytoshi Kusama predicts the launch for July.

Lucie added:

“Shiba team is confident about the launch and have multiple teams working on it, including AI integration. Our estimate is for 2023, and we are not pumping anything but focusing on sustainable growth. The testing process and security audits are crucial before the launch.”

The launch of Shibarium will complete Shiba Inu’s transition from a memecoin into a project with clear utility. This could boost the value of related tokens such as SHIB, BONE, and LEASH.

SHIB is trading at $0.00000881 after increasing by 3% in the last 24 hours, according to BeInCrypto data.
