Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer behind Shiba Inu, has once again piqued the curiosity of the SHIB community with his recent update on Telegram.
In a screenshot shared by influencer Kuro SHIBARMY JPN, a SHIB enthusiast in the official Telegram group hinted at “something brewing” for the cryptocurrency. Responding to this post, Kusama simply stated, “Very much so.”
As expected, Kusama’s message has ignited excitement among SHIB enthusiasts who eagerly await an official announcement from the team.
This is not a new phenomenon, as historically, Kusama has shared cryptic messages like these whenever the team is on the brink of a significant revelation.
In June, for instance, he teased that something physical was in the works, which later turned out to be Shibacals—an innovation that transforms digital NFTs into tangible, awe-inspiring items.
In his most recent Telegram chat, Kusama didn’t provide many hints, leaving the community to speculate on the nature of the impending update.
Shiba Inu New AI Endeavor in Partnership with Bad Idea AI
The forthcoming announcement could be related to a major partnership, the Shibarium project, or an artificial intelligence (AI) initiative.
Earlier this week, Kusama hinted at an “AI initiative,” both secretive and not-so-secret, in collaboration with Shiba Inu’s partner, Bad Idea. While details about the AI project remain scarce, some in the community speculate that it may not necessarily involve SHIB burns.
Kusama Makes a Comeback on Social Media
This development coincides with Kusama’s return to social media following a 26-day hiatus. Shiba Inu’s marketing specialist, Lucie, shared an update confirming his re-emergence.
Kusama made his presence felt on social media once again, reacting with an intrigued “eyes emoji” to a post from Marcie Jastrow, Shiba Inu’s Metaverse Advisor.
Since then, he has been actively engaged across various social media platforms, sharing enigmatic messages and hinting at upcoming endeavors.
