Shiba Inu (SHIB) burn tracker, Shibburn, has recently brought forward some serious allegations against the creator of the popular meme coin. The project claims that the creator, known by the pseudonym “Ryoshi,” has not been acting in the best interest of the SHIB ecosystem. These allegations have sent shockwaves through the SHIB community and raised concerns about the transparency and integrity of the project.
Shibburn’s series of posts on their X platform accuses the SHIB founders of being less than forthcoming in their actions. One of the main allegations is that they have deliberately prevented the token’s burn rate by refusing to burn over 103 trillion SHIB. This claim is based on Ryoshi’s supposed misrepresentation of their SHIB holdings. Shibburn alleges that Ryoshi initially claimed to hold “0 SHIB” to avoid conflicts of interest, but it turns out they actually hold more than $1 billion worth of SHIB. Furthermore, the founders have been actively concealing their holdings by constantly moving them across different wallets. Shibburn argues that this deception has hindered the growth of the ecosystem, as some of these tokens were meant to be burned. The project even goes as far as suggesting that Ryoshi does not genuinely care about SHIB’s development and is solely interested in personal gain.
Shibburn’s most shocking revelation is that Ryoshi might not be an individual but rather a collective of “greedy investors.” These individuals are allegedly using SHIB as their “golden goose” to enrich themselves. This startling claim suggests that the true intentions behind the creation of SHIB were not to benefit the community but to serve the interests of the founders. As the allegations unfold, it becomes increasingly apparent that there might be ulterior motives at play within the SHIB ecosystem.
In addition to Ryoshi, Shibburn also implicates SHIB’s lead developer, Shytoshi Kusama, in questionable actions. The burn tracker accuses Kusama of not being a “real dev” and suggests that they, too, are seeking personal profits from the community. One specific incident mentioned is the alleged self-rewarding of a significant amount of $BONE when ShibaSwap was launched. Shibburn further speculates that this could be the reason why BONE was made a gas token for Shibarium, potentially inflating its utility and value. Despite these serious allegations, Kusama has remained silent, and the official announcements blog, where developers usually provide updates, has not addressed the situation.
Surprisingly, the Shiba Inu project appears to be undeterred by the allegations made against its founder and lead developer. The lack of response from Ryoshi and Kusama, as well as the absence of official clarifications, raises concerns about the project’s transparency and accountability. It remains to be seen how this controversy will impact the future of SHIB and whether the community will demand more answers from its leaders.
The allegations made by Shibburn against the creator and lead developer of Shiba Inu raise serious doubts about the integrity of the project. The community must demand transparency and accountability from its leaders to ensure the long-term sustainability and trustworthiness of SHIB. As investors, it is crucial to thoroughly investigate and question the projects we support to make informed decisions in the volatile world of cryptocurrencies.
