  • Lead developer teases open registration for early access.

Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer behind the memecoin project Shiba Inu (SHIB), has recently introduced SHIB Name Tokens as a game-changing solution to simplify digital identity within the crypto space. This initiative is set to revolutionize the way users transact and interact across various blockchains.

SHIB Name Tokens to Address Complexity of Wallet Addresses

Kusama has openly criticized the current complexity of wallet addresses, stating, “These long, complex wallet addresses make no sense to the average user and it’s time for something simpler.”

In response to this challenge, Shiba Inu has partnered with D3 Inc, a domain firm, to introduce SHIB Name Tokens, a multichain, cross-platform username aimed at enhancing the Web3 journey for users.

The fundamental idea behind SHIB Name Tokens is to replace the need for multiple wallet addresses with a single, user-friendly identifier. Kusama envisions a future where users can send and receive a multitude of digital assets using just their Name Token, eliminating the confusion associated with lengthy wallet addresses. This innovation aligns with the broader goal of simplifying transactions for the average user in the crypto space.

“As Web3 continues to develop, you will continue to use your wallet to access many, many platforms. From dApps to games, DeFi to social media, and beyond, your Name Token will become your cross-platform username. hello*shib,” Kusama explained. 

The goal is to create a cohesive and user-friendly experience across various platforms, making the SHIB Name Token a universal identifier in the Web3 domain. The move towards SHIB Name Tokens complements the recent integration of the Wallet Connect feature into Shibarium, Shiba Inu’s layer-2 solution.

As announced by Shytoshi Kusama, early registration for the SHIB Name Service has commenced already.

Shiba Inu’s Strategic Collaborations and Initiatives

The move towards SHIB Name Tokens comes on the heels of Shiba Inu’s collaboration with D3 Inc. to secure a “.SHIB” Top-Level Domain (TLD). This strategic move aims to establish a presence in the Web2 infrastructure, leveraging the global popularity of Shiba Inu to leave a lasting impression on the Internet.

Moreover, Kusama highlighted the community’s efforts to curate a “network state” to revolutionize support for both Web2 and Web3 collectively. These ambitious initiatives highlight Shiba Inu’s strategic positioning to enhance its functionality and influence within the decentralized technology space.

In tandem with these initiatives, Shiba Inu has recorded a remarkable increase in its token burn rate. The SHIB burn rate has risen by approximately 6,000% in the last week, marking an unparalleled spike in the new year. 

Over 9 billion SHIB tokens have been permanently removed from circulation, accounting for approximately 10% of the total SHIBs burned last year. This reflects the community’s commitment to limiting token supply and making SHIB tokens more scarce.

As of the time of writing, SHIB is trading at $0.059595, reflecting a marginal increase of 0.1% in the past 24 hours. The market cap stands at $5.6 billion, with a 24-hour trading volume of $104 million.
