Shiba Inu's TREAT Token Secures $12M for Privacy-Focused Blockchain

The popular meme cryptocurrency, Shiba Inu, managed to rake in an impressive $12 million through the marketing of its upcoming functional token and governance token named TREAT. This funding marks an important milestone in Shiba Inu’s quest to create a privacy-focused Layer 3 blockchain.

On April 22nd, 2024, Shiba Inu, a network of digital assets and solutions on the Ethereum blockchain, which includes the popular global cryptocurrency $SHIB, announced that it has secured $12 million in funding through a group of non-U.S. strategic partners in venture capital.

These partners include Mechanism Capital, Big Brain Holdings, Cypher Capital, Shima Capital, Hercules Ventures, Animoca Brands, Morningstar Ventures, Woodstock Fund, DWF Ventures, Polygon Ventures, Stake Capital, Illuminati Digital Capital, Primal Capital, Comma 3 Ventures, DWF Ventures, and Spirit Dao.

They have invested in the Shiba Inu Ecosystem by purchasing the not-yet-released $TREAT utility and governance token, which will be the final non-stable token for Shiba Inu.

What is $TREAT?

Furthermore, the well-known meme brand’s last unreleased token, $TREAT, is set to unlock Shiba Inu’s recently announced blockchain, which will incorporate the revolutionary Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) technology.

This cutting-edge chain will utilize the expertise of their partner, Zama.ai, in the field of FHE. The primary goal of this new encryption chain is to address various challenges in the crypto world, such as privacy and trust, for Shiba Inu’s extensive community of millions of users and the growing number of individuals interested in cryptocurrency.

Additionally, the concept behind Shiba Inu was conceived by its founder, Ryoshi, who acknowledges the invaluable support from the community. Together, they have reshaped the crypto landscape, driven by a shared vision. The team has surpassed expectations, creating a robust ecosystem with cutting-edge core technology, spanning community, gaming, AI, metaverse, DeFi, self-sovereign identity, and encryption.

Lead Developer of Shiba Inu, Shytoshi Kusama, expresses excitement at the endorsement received from prominent VCs, angel investors, and brands, as they strive to realize their decentralized experiment.

The focus is on establishing Shibarium as the leading meme hub globally, while also strengthening security measures and ensuring compliance with regulatory standards.
