Shibarium Beta? Lead Shiba Inu (SHIB) dev hints he is about to finish current task: details

On Saturday, Feb. 25, a SHIB enthusiast who goes by KURO SHIBARMY JPN (@kuro_9696_9696) on Twitter spotted that SHIB lead dev Shytoshi Kusama has changed his account’s bio to a “dot” symbol. Many assumed that the meaning behind this laconic message could be that Kusama will soon put an “end” to one of the tasks he has been working on. The next day, Feb. 26, brought another hint — the developer’s bio has been updated with two more dots added to the other one. This turned the message into a dotted line, giving it a meaning of continuation, which looked like Kusama was trolling the impatient SHIB fans. However, today, to the great delight of the community, the developer introduced the fruits of his labor, debuting a new Shibarium-related website and intake system.
