Shiba Inu teases a collaboration with Red Bull
Shiba Inu's lead developer, Shytoshi Kusama, recently shared a tweet pertaining to a chat with energy drink brand Red Bull, saying, "Thanks for the chat about everything SHIB .@redbull! Looking forward to speaking more in the future." The tweet also included a GIF image of a man wearing a Red Bull helmet, gliding through the air.
Shytoshi did not reveal a lot of details, but the tweet might suggest that talks are ongoing for future collaboration. Shiba Inu's collaborations with the food industry are not new, as SHIB announced its partnership with Welly's, a fast-food joint based in Naples, Italy, in early February. Red Bull is yet to give any official confirmation as of press time.
Shiba Inu was trading up 1.18% at $0.00001159 at the time of publication.
