Lead Developer for Shiba Inu Addresses Twitter Verification Badge Loss

Lead Developer for Shiba Inu Addresses Twitter Verification Badge Loss

The chief developer of the Shiba Inu ecosystem and anonymous volunteer, Shytoshi Kusama, has commented on the loss of his Twitter verification badge.

Interestingly, the coder failed when he attempted to abbreviate his Twitter handle to Shytoshi.

The developer praised his followers in a tweet today and criticized media outlets for focusing on his critics, mentioning that he had once more added "Kusama" to his Twitter name. As a result, he anticipates that the microblogging service will confirm his account once more.

In response to a comment made by well-known community influencer SHIB BPP (@ShibBPP), the developer made this declaration. Particularly, SHIB BPP had poked fun at Kusama by claiming that the chief developer was a con artist and that this was the reason for the loss of the verification badge.

In response to SHIB BPP, Kusama wrote.

The Shiba Inu community is currently divided into sections as a result of a breakdown in January, with one group opposing Kusama's leadership, which they see as analogous to an authoritarian dictatorship. Shibarium is the ecosystem's planned Ethereum Layer 2 protocol. In what DeFi Kraken (@DeFi Kraken) called a "hostile takeover," Kusama opened a separate Telegram channel for it while mysteriously dismissing some key members from the moderation team.

But despite this, the main developer still has support from the larger community, at least based on a Twitter poll LUCIE (@LucieSHIB), another significant community influencer, performed.

Other influencers, like LUCIE, have turned to Twitter to warn against hastily opening links because scammers might take advantage of the fact that Kusama lost his verification certificate. Recall that earlier this week, a fraudster posing as the chief developer managed to con some members of the community who subsequently suffered large losses.

The public testnet for Shibarium was set to debut this week, according to developers. It will be interesting to see if this chronology is still true with less than 24 hours before the conclusion of the week.
