In the wake of Andre Cronje’s departure, Shiba Inu Lead Developer Shytoshi Kusama reiterates his support for SHIB.
Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudonymous primary developer of Shiba Inu, has reiterated his commitment to the development of the SHIB ecosystem, following rumours of prolific coders Andre Cronje and Anton Neil calling it quits in the decentralised financial area.
Kusama claimed in a recent Twitter post that he would continue to contribute his quota to the Shiba Inu ecosystem by developing beneficial initiatives that would assist the cryptocurrency become recognised as a utility token rather than a memecoin.
“I imagine a world in which the majority of people perceive the end. (Which is what I get.) I’m not a billionaire (and never will be), I’m just a regular guy trying to make the best of a bad situation. Kusama described the situation as “shibarmy.”
The recent departures of Cronje and Neil, according to the Shiba Inu main developer, demonstrate the threat bitcoin engineers face for their contributions to developing a decentralised finance ecosystem that might provide everyone financial freedom.
“I will not give up until we carve out a new universe,” the pseudonymous Shiba Inu developer added, despite the fury, [bullshit], and extortion.
Sad to see Andre leave. But that's why #shib is built different. Unlike like Billy who also called it quits, I'm not leaving. I'm building. I see a future where most see the end. (Which I get.) I'm no billionaire (and never will be), I'm just a normal guy doing my best. #shibarmy

Kusma’s remark comes after he chastised critics for criticising the initiative for failing to negotiate key collaborations with Microsoft and Warner Brothers in recent weeks.
Shiba Inu has yet to obtain large partnerships, according to Kusama, because it is still building and the majority of its initiatives are still in development.
Neil and Cronje declared yesterday on Twitter that they were closing the chapter on development in the DeFi and crypto space. Several decentralised financial cryptocurrencies, including Fantom (FTM), Yearn Finance (YFI), Geist Finance (GEIST), and others, had their prices plummet as a result of the tragic news.
Meanwhile, Kusama continues to be at the vanguard of important Shiba Inu projects that will transform SHIB from a joke coin to a utility token.
As previously reported, Shiba Inu is now developing a play-to-earn (P2E) game and a burn gateway that would limit the overall supply of SHIB, hence increasing the cryptocurrency’s value.
