Shiba Inu-based inscription marketplace WoofSwap intends to welcome the ERC404 token standard for Shibarium.

In a recent post on X, WoofSwap, a hub for trading Shiba Inu-themed SRC-20 token inscriptions, unveiled a significant update for the SHIB Army.

Specifically, WoofSwap seeks to explore the feasibility of implementing the ERC404 standard on Shibarium, the layer two blockchain designed for the Shiba Inu ecosystem. The WoofSwap team expressed admiration for the ERC404 concept.

Notably, this standard amalgamates the characteristics of ERC20 for fungible tokens and ERC721 for non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Essentially, ERC404 provides fungibility and unique identifiers.

Given its potential benefits for various applications within Shibarium, WoofSwap mentioned they are contemplating connecting Shibmap to ERC404 Shibarium.

This integration would enable Shibmap to be incorporated into WoofSwap and broaden its availability across more centralized exchanges (CEX) and decentralized exchanges (DEX).

The team remarked, “We need more time to work on it. It’s already on the list.”

ERC404 is a great idea.
We are considering bridging shibmap to ERC404 #Shibarium.
So that Shibmap can be added to woofswap and more CEX and DEX.

We need more time to work on it, it's already on the list.

We want to see more innovation in Shibarium, if you are excited about… pic.twitter.com/7njaS9FHq9
