Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer at Shiba Inu, has lately called out to the community to become a part of the Shiba Inu Defence Breed amid a growing FUD campaign launched against the project. The label highlights the need for all community members to do their part in defending the Shiba Inu project against orchestrated propaganda.
Recall that recently the news that the Shibarium code was a cloned version of Rina’s blockchain;’s existing code. While the FUD was ongoing, the lead developer stood to tell the community, soliciting solidarity among community members, and emphasizing the critical role of collective support for the project.
To effectively communicate this message to the community, Kusama has utilized his Twitter biography, which he frequently modifies to convey essential points.
Furthermore, Kusama underscored the importance of commitment to the project’s mission, stating, “if you fly the shib flag, it shouldn’t be reversible.” This suggests that members of the Shiba Inu community should remain steadfast in supporting the project’s goals.
Following the unpalatable campaigns against Shiba Inu, Kusama called out to the community to be part of the Defense Breed, thereby placing a shared responsibility on the entire community for the tasks previously assigned solely to the original Defense Breed.
He noted; “You All are the new Defense Breed.”
Shiba Inu Calls Its Community To Be A Part Of Defence Breed
The Defense Breed, initially composed of twelve individuals from the Shiba Inu community, was entrusted with the responsibility of supporting the SHIB ecosystem by scrutinizing SHIB-related projects, debunking false rumours, and disseminating factual and critical information to members of the community and the public, among other functions.
In the second instalment of his Shibarium blog series, Kusama praised the accomplishments of the Defense Breed and explained that they were disbanded because their exceptional efforts were no longer restricted to a “defence” team, having achieved remarkable success in securing several partnerships for the Shiba Inu project.
According to reports, on August 29, 2021, the lead developer of the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency, known by the pseudonym “Ryoshi,” declared that all members of the Shiba Inu community were part of the “Shiba Defense Team.” The announcement was made on the official Shiba Inu Telegram channel, where Ryoshi stated that the community’s role was to defend the cryptocurrency’s ecosystem against potential threats such as fraudsters and scammers.
Ryoshi also emphasized the importance of the community’s role in promoting the adoption and growth of Shiba Inu, stating that they were the “front line” in spreading awareness about cryptocurrency and its potential uses.
