In a recent post published on the Twitter/X platform, Ethereum co-founder and frontman Vitalik Buterin mentioned the popular meme cryptocurrency Shiba Inu, which caused a stark wave of comments coming from the SHIB community and crypto influencers.

SHIB lead, the mysterious Shytoshi Kusama, has quoted Vitalik’s tweet, posting a response to it as well.

Kusama pleased by Buterin's tweet

Vitalik Buterin shared what impression he got of the Shiba Inu meme coin when he disposed of the massive SHIB chunk, most likely he speaks about the 500 billion SHIB sent to him by the project’s pseudonymous founder Ryoshi in 2021 – half of the total one-quadrillion supply.

Buterin stated that he donated a lot of that SHIB stash for charity purposes, expecting that this meme coin would definitely plunge 100x within just a few days, hence he had to act quickly. He wanted the receivers to have enough time to cash the SHIB out at at least $10 million - $25 million. But then he said something which pleased the Shiba Inu army enormously – “But of course SHIB massively outperformed by expectations.”

Shytoshi Kusama quoted Vitalik’s Twitter/X post, issuing a bullish comment in the form of a hashtag - #SHIBARMYSTRONG. This got the Shiba Inu community more than excited.

This was not the only massive transaction in which crypto has left this trading platform over the past 24 hours. Overall, as covered by U.Today, the crypto trading venue has lost a whopping $500 million worth of crypto.

Withdrawals began one after another after news was spread around the crypto space about KuCoin and its two founders getting hit with criminal charges by the US Department of Justice. They were charged with being “a haven for illicit money laundering” after violating the Bank Secrecy Act – a similar charge the former Binance CEO CZ was slapped with.

This criminal activity supported by KuCoin on its virtual premises took part between 2020 and 2022. Besides, the platform also received several millions of USD from the sanctioned mixer Tornado Cash and did not make any effort to report any suspicious transfers.
