The last 24 hours have seen BONE gain attention as the Shiba Inu team posted a teaser specifically on BONE.
StealthEX, a cryptocurrency exchange for limitless swaps, has also added Shiba Inu's BONE to the list of supported assets, which would allow users to exchange or swap BONE with over 600 supported assets.
Shiba Inu lead developer, Shytoshi Kusama, says his focus has now turned to Shibarium, which consequently includes BONE, the gas of the Layer 2 solution.
Shibarium close to public beta release
BONE is expected to be utilized as "gas" and a reward for validators. For this specific role, 20 million BONE have been set aside.
In a recent blog post, Shiba Inu Layer 2 builder Unification shared what was happening with Shibarium under the caption "Wen L2? Sewn!"
Unification maintains that its work with the Shibarium team remains its core external project for the year and is moving forward with great strength. It highlights ongoing work on the alpha version while saying it is close to the public beta release.
