Kusama Shares Crypto Donations for Turkey & Syria

In addition, Kusama shared a donation link that supports BEP20, Avalanche, and ERC-20 coins which is suitable for SHIB transfers on the Ethereum (ETH) network. This was in response to an appeal for aid for victims of an earthquake in Turkey and Syria where over 35,000 people were affected.

Uncertainty Around Shibarium Launch Date

The highly anticipated Layer-2 solution for Shiba Inu has still not been released on Valentine’s Day as speculated by members of the SHIB Army earlier. Despite this delay though, Kusama encourages everyone to enjoy this day regardless and remain patient until further updates are given regarding Shibarium’s launch date.

DefiKraken Falsely Endorses Unrelated Token

Despite rumors surrounding Paw (PAW) token being false and delays around Shibarium’s launch date remaining uncertain ,the generous act from Shytoshi Kusama towards supporting victims in Turkey & Syria should be celebrated by all within the cryptocurrency community today on Valentine’s day!
