The lead developer of Shiba Inu, known under the pseudonym Shytoshi Kusama, has changed his avatar picture on Telegram, which can be seen in the official "Shibarium Tech" channel.
New profile pic of Shytoshi
This fact was also noticed by a member of the SHIB team, a content marketing specialist who goes by the name Lucie. Shytoshi Kusama (even look at his pseudonym) is known for his inclination to make statements in the style of Eastern philosophy, and he often seems to like to leave his followers guessing if his actions have any hidden sense. He usually changes his statuses on social media to indicate that work reaches a certain important point or that changes are coming.
This time, he has put up a new profile picture for his Telegram account, featuring a Shiba Inu silhouette between blooming Sakura trees; the picture looks as if it was taken from an NFT or an old-school graphics style PC game.
Considering all the recent statements by Shytoshi, Lucie and some of the SHIB developers, it may be correct to assume that the launch of the Shibarium mainnet is inching closer, hence, the new profile pic.
Among the possible rough dates for the release, July, August and September have been named. July is merely a few days away.
Shytoshi slams Shibarium fudders in message
