The user shared a screenshot of Kusama’s X account showing a modification in his location marker. According to the screenshot, the lead developer of the Shiba Inu is currently in Singapore.

SHIB Holders React
As expected, the development sparked a mixed reaction within the Shiba Inu community, with people flocking to the comment section to guess Kusama’s mission in Singapore.
While some suggested that the lead developer might have traveled to Singapore for vacation, others seized the opportunity to criticize him and other Shiba Inu ecosystem team members.
Notably, the criticism resulted from the low prices of Shiba Inu ecosystem tokens, including BONE and SHIB.
It bears mentioning that Kusama occasionally changes his location marker on the X platform. In May last year, his location changed to Japan.
This move stirred a wave of speculation among Shiba Inu community members at the time, with KURO stating that Kusama may have visited the country for a holiday. According to Kuro, Kusama’s location in Japan at the time is usually visited by tourists due to its “quality snow.”
Interestingly, Kusama also confirmed that he traveled to Japan for relaxation. In the meantime, the Shiba Inu lead developer has yet to reveal the motive behind his trip to Singapore.
SHIB Performance Since Bitcoin ETF Launch
Meanwhile, Shiba Inu has continued to change hands below the $0.00001 level since January 12. SHIB and other altcoins plummeted heavily a day after Bitcoin spot ETFs commenced trading in the United States.
Grayscale’s BTC sell-off and low interest in Bitcoin spot ETFs among traditional investors were the primary reasons behind the dip in crypto prices.
Despite the dip, Shiba Inu’s historical performance suggests that the canine-themed token could record double-digit gains in February 2024. Whether Shiba Inu will achieve this feat in the upcoming month remains to be seen.
At the time of writing this line, SHIB was changing hands at $0.00000901, up 2% in the past 24 hours.
