Shiba Inu Upcoming Layer-3 Privacy Blockchain

The goal of the fundraiser is to accelerate Shiba Inu’s efforts to launch the privacy-based layer-3 blockchain it is building on Shibarium.

Kusama chose not to reveal the name of the upcoming blockchain. This move aims to prevent fraud attempts by creating fake TREAT tokens.

The Shiba Inu team is developing the new blockchain by leveraging cryptography firm Zama’s fully homomorphic encryption technology. According to Kusama, the new blockchain will go live on a testnet in the third quarter of 2024, after which it will be moved to the mainnet.

TREAT token will be the utility and governance asset for the upcoming privacy-focused blockchain. SHIB leader announced that TREAT will be the last risk asset introduced by the Shiba Inu ecosystem.

He also noted that efforts are ongoing to launch a stablecoin called “SHI” before the end of this year. Current Shiba Inu ecosystem tokens include SHIB, BONE, and Doge Killer (LEASH).
