Shiba Inu Gets Invited to WEF MV Global Policy Event

Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudonymous volunteer project lead and developer for meme coin Shiba Inu (SHIB) has taken to Twitter to announce that the World Economic Forum (WEF) is interested in working with SHIB developers to launch its global metaverse (MV) policy. According to the poll tweet, Kusama is asking for the opinion of the Shiba Inu community in making a final decision as to whether to collaborate with the international organization or not.

Working with WEF could mean that SHIB developers will sit alongside the likes of Facebook parent company Meta, Sandbox, and Decentraland. Kusama tweeted “We would be at the table with policymakers and would help shape global policy for the MV alongside other giants like FB (bye Zuck), Sand, Decentraland etc. And please don’t ask my opinion, you already know.”

Shiba Inu Army Votes in Favour of WEF Collaboration 

If this finally pulls through, this will be the first time WEF is engaging with a famous meme token, although it has had some discussions on crypto and the blockchain.

At the time of this writing 20,545 votes had been cast with 62% in favor of the partnership with WEF. Another 28% have decided against the collaboration with some calling WEF ‘corrupt’. The other 10% remain indifferent about the collaboration.

Shiba Inu’s foray into the metaverse began with the launch of Shiberse, a metaverse ecosystem.

Noteworthy, Shiba Inu is leaving the responsibility of deciding to its community the Shib Army, showing how much the project values the input of its users. This goes to show that Shiba Inu is still keeping up with the status of a decentralized community amidst the ongoing bearish market.

“#ShibArmy I need a quick vote: We have been kindly invited to work with the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM as it pertains to their MV global policy. Would love to know what you all think because it’s not our decision, but yours,” Kusama tweeted

The role which Shiba Inu will play in this WEF event is yet to be disclosed but Facebook Meta, which recently announced a massive layoff, will be saddled with the responsibility of bringing the mainstream Web2 perspective of the metaverse into the mix.

In less than 6 hours from the time of this writing, the poll is scheduled to have ended.
