The partnership, set to begin in Wednesday, November 22, will see Shibarium become an enabler to the foundation’s fundraising optimization and distribution, among other operations. The foundation’s hallmark is to help the needy, with millions of aid already issued out for people requiring urgent support. Commenting on the matter, Manny Pacquiao Foundation Executive Director Jon Sisson told CoinDesk:
Shibarium will allow us to continue this good work while scaling up operations to help millions more.
While the partnership is only starting, the foundation has been accepting SHIB donations, with the history going back two years, since 2021.
It should be noted that Shibarium, a Layer 2 (L2) blockchain built atop Ethereum, makes it possible for users to transact on the network at affordable rates. It is faster with reduced bottlenecks, a typical characteristic of an L2 network, which are off-chain applications built on top of a ‘base’ blockchain.

Shortly after, the ecosystem’s marketing specialist Lucie indicated that the Japan SBI VC had invited Japanese cryptocurrency community members to commemorate Kabo-chan’s birthday on November 2.
