In a bold move to shed its memecoin origins and establish itself as a serious player in the blockchain industry, Shiba Inu has secured $12 million in funding to develop a new layer-3 blockchain with a focus on privacy. The popular crypto, known for its dog-themed branding, has garnered notable institutional interest with this ambitious project.

The funding round involved the sale of TREAT, an unreleased token, to a consortium of prominent venture capital firms, including Polygon Ventures, Mechanism Capital, Big Brain Holdings, Shima Capital and Animoca Brands, among others. According to reports, Shiba Inu began raising funds a few months ago, finalizing the round in early April.

TREAT is designed to serve a dual purpose within the Shiba Inu ecosystem, functioning as both a utility token and a governance token. The Shiba Inu layer-3 blockchain will be built on Shibarium, the project's Ethereum layer-2 blockchain, which is currently under development. While TREAT is a non-stable token, the project plans to introduce a second token called SHI later in 2024. The layer-3 blockchain aims to address privacy and trust concerns within the Shiba Inu ecosystem by utilizing fully homomorphic encryption technology. This cutting-edge technology allows for the performance of computations on enc

ecryption, enhancing user privacy and security.

This move is a significant step forward for Shiba Inu as it strives to move beyond its memecoin origins and establish itself as a relevant player in the blockchain industry. The focus on privacy and regulatory compliance suggests a more mature approach, potentially appealing to a wider range of users and investors.
