In a recent tweet, Lucie, the marketing lead for the Shiba Inu project team, unveiled an ambitious strategy dubbed ‘The Big Plan from The Shiba State’ set to span 2024 and 2025. The roadmap Lucie laid out centers around decentralization and community empowerment, aiming to shift the governance of Shibarium, Shiba Inu’s layer-2 blockchain, towards a more democratic and participatory model.
‘Big Plan’ For Shiba Inu In 2024/2025
Lucie’s tweet outlined several core objectives, with “More Power to Everyone” at the forefront, indicating a move to spread decision-making across the Shiba Inu community. This approach aims to dilute central control, ostensibly giving each token holder a stake in governance decisions.
“Shibarium spreads decision-making across the community, reducing reliance on central control and giving everyone a say,” Lucie stated, emphasizing the overarching goal of democratizing influence within the ecosystem.
The plan also highlights “Community Empowerment” by ensuring that all token holders, irrespective of their holdings, will have a say in the project’s direction. This is a nod to inclusivity, aiming to prevent a concentration of power among a select few, which is a common critique in many blockchain projects. Lucie remarked, “By involving all tokens in voting, we avoid the risk of a few dominating the decisions, ensuring a balanced ecosystem.”
Another point in the tweet elaborates on the importance of “Encouraging Active Participation” by leveraging tokens with significant voting power to drive engagement and collaboration within the Shiba Inu community. This could suggest a plan to incentivize or reward active participation, a strategy that other decentralized finance (DeFi) and decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) projects have employed with varying degrees of success.
Addressing concerns around governance, Lucie promised “Fair and Transparent Governance” and the fostering of trust through the transparent processes this governance model would ensure. The emphasis on equality in voting power is particularly noteworthy, as it suggests a move away from systems where entities with large holdings can unduly sway decisions.
The final point of the tweet speaks to the future, with Lucie envisioning “Sustainable Growth Together.” The message here is clear: by embracing decentralization and empowering the community, Shibarium aims to lay the groundwork for long-term, sustainable growth through a collective decision-making process and active community participation.
While the details of implementation remain sparse, the tweet is certainly setting the stage for significant changes in how the Shiba Inu community may interact with and influence the token’s development and use cases in the future.
Two days ago, SHIB lead developer Shytoshi Kusama shared a similar message. He argued that “One issue about being decentralized is being unable to contact or work with so many incredible influencers who have Shib media across MANY channels.” He laid out his plan to change that by unifying all efforts.
At press time, SHIB was trading at $0.00000813 after finding support at the 20-week EMA. At the moment, the 200-day EMA at $0.00000833 is the strongest resistance.
