SHIB transfers started on June 6, followed by a limit-only mode on June 7. As of now, there has not been any date for the full trading release. Bitstamp has stated that it will happen upon the order books collecting enough liquidity.
Initially, the exchange said listing Shiba Inu in December 2021. However, technical issues delayed the launch but the issues were not disclosed. In the launch announcement, there was no explanation about the reasons behind the delay. Still, it kept on re-affirming listing SHIB, but never finalized a fixed date.
The ShibArmy is asking more exchanges to list SHIB, alongside the other tokens in its ecosystem, BONE and LEASH.
According to reports on social media, Shibarium is expected to release in June; thus, opening the door for the debut of the layer-2 solution.
Shibarium is considered to be the most eagerly anticipated development for the Shiba Inu token. As per the investors, its launch will allow SHIB to scale up in price in a sustainable manner.
