Shytoshi Kusama has called out a former internal team member for circulating fake news about the project. 

The lead developer of Shiba Inu who goes by the pseudonym Shytoshi Kusama, has lamented the actions of people dedicated to spreading malicious information about the project in effort to harm the SHIB ecosystem, including investors.

In a Medium blog post published today, Kusama noted that over the past six months, some internal key members who had access to Shiba Inu’s private information, key aspects, and tactics had left the SHIB ecosystem and joined other projects.

While Kusama expressed good wishes for almost all the internal team members who deserted Shiba Inu, he singled out one of them, referred to as Don Julio, for trying to wreak havoc on the SHIB ecosystem.

Kusama Cautions the Fudder

“I’ve spent too much time staring at Don Julio asking why fudders like you want to harm us […] What is your goal? Is it to harm the project? To harm people who have done nothing but try to make SHIB the best it can be? Is it to push the price down so you can buy the dip?,” Kusama noted in the Medium blog post.

He cautioned the former Shiba Inu team member to tread carefully as the entire cryptocurrency market deals with bigger issues – political and economic – which are way bigger than anyone in the crypto industry.

“Whatever your intention, please understand that there are forces at work here larger than me or you, and that you should tread carefully when attacking people for literally no reason at all,” Kusama added.

Kusama called on the fudder to look into his soul and discover his true nature because in the near future everyone will bear the consequences of their actions.

Shiba Inu Silenced Naysayers

This is not the first time Kusama is calling out fudders who are bent on circulating Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubts (FUDs) about Shiba Inu, in order to harm the project.

Kusama had previously called out fudders for saying the Shiba Inu team was not building its decentralized exchange as announced in early 2021.

However, Shiba Inu chose to match words with actions and rolled out the decentralized exchange a year ago, which introduced more utility into its ecosystem.

Fudders refused to rest still, as they called out the Shiba Inu team for lying about signing a partnership with Italian fashion brand John Richmond.

The partnership has advanced pretty well as John Richmond recently released some of the designs featuring the Shiba Inu mascot, a development that prompted Kusama to slam these naysayers.
