Shiba Inu developer Shytoshi Kusama tweeted that he just passed a big idea to the Shiba Inu Core Team that might shake the crypto space if agreed upon. The details of the ''big idea'' remain yet unknown at press time.
Just ran a big idea past the Core Team and Alphas. If agreed I think we might just shake up this crypto space, do a good deed and have fun at the same time. ?— Shytoshi Kusama™ (@ShytoshiKusama) January 19, 2022
The SHIB developer also shared a tweet from Shiba Inu's official website of something big brewing for the Shiba Inu ecosystem. In late December, during an AMA session on Twitter, Queenie, the official Discord moderator, hinted at a big surprise in 2022. "We do have a big surprise when we enter 2022. So, that's going to be the last little tidbit that I drop," she stated without disclosing further details.
