Ryoshi Calls for Vigilance From Scammers: Urges Shib Army to Safeguard Shiba Inu’s Integrity

April 17, 2024

In an era rife with opportunists and scammers, the Shib Army is fortified by a timeless message from Ryoshi, the enigmatic creator of Shiba Inu. Delivered years ago, his stern warning resonates, reiterating his unwavering commitment to safeguarding the brand and emphasizing the importance of protecting the integrity of the expanding Shiba ecosystem against exploitation.

The Enigmatic Founder

Ryoshi remains a pseudonymous figure, best known through his insightful and often philosophical Medium posts. Through these writings, Ryoshi has cultivated an image of a visionary yet mysterious leader, deeply committed to the principles upon which Shiba Inu was founded. His anonymity adds a layer of intrigue and fosters a decentralized ethos central to the cryptocurrency’s culture.

Ryoshi’s Warning

The timeless words of Ryoshi were recently revived when an original member of the Shib Army, known by the handle @bhobponce, shared them on X (formerly Twitter).

In a candid message, Ryoshi reaffirmed his dedication to safeguarding the Shiba Inu brand against those he describes as leeches: “My job, my job is to defend the line and the brand. From the beginning, it is always the same. SHIBA is SHIBA. That is all. Anybody who comes and honors the Shiba walks equal with me. Anybody who comes and attempts to leech from the Shiba is a scammer and placed into exile.”

It is not clear exactly when Ryoshi originally said these words as he deleted his social media posts and blogs when he left Shiba Inu; he continues to remain anonymous.

This statement serves as a clear warning to those looking to benefit unfairly from the community’s success, emphasizing the importance of contributing positively to the ecosystem rather than exploiting it.

The Allure of Leeching from the Shib Army

As Shiba Inu gains prominence in the cryptocurrency world, its growing visibility and the robust community behind it become attractive targets for opportunists. These individuals, driven by the potential for personal gain, attempt to leverage the Shib Army’s momentum without genuine allegiance to its values. Their actions range from promoting misleading initiatives that promise high returns, to outright scams under the guise of affiliation with Shiba Inu. Such behavior threatens individual investors’ financial stability and undermines the trust and collaborative spirit that define the Shiba Inu community.

Echoe of Ryoshi’s Message 

Ryoshi’s message finds a strong echo in the words of Lucie, one of the most influential voices within the Shib Army and the marketing specialist of Shibarium Tech and Shiba Ecosystem. In her recent post, she emphatically stated: “Stand tall against the wolves in sheep’s clothing.  In the crypto realm, just like in life, deceitful individuals lurk, aiming to manipulate for personal gain. But fear not, for every scammer only adds fuel to our fire, igniting our determination to build a more transparent and trustworthy ecosystem. In #Shibarium We trust.” Lucie’s remarks further galvanize the community’s resolve to counteract exploitation with solidarity and vigilance.

A Call to Uphold Core Values

As Shiba Inu continues to evolve and expand its ecosystem, the words of Ryoshi carry significant weight. The community, often referred to as the Shib Army, is reminded that the core values and the vision articulated by Ryoshi remain as relevant today as they were at inception. This reminder is crucial as it reinforces the community’s vigilance against fraudulent activities and encourages a collective effort to maintain the integrity and original spirit of Shiba Inu.

The Shib Army, especially as the Shiba ecosystem continues to grow, remains on high alert, guided by Ryoshi’s founding principles and vigilant against any threats that might undermine the cryptocurrency’s legitimacy and collective ethos.
