Lead Shiba Inu Developer Apologizes as Countdown Ends Up Being Nothingburger

The lead developer of the cryptocurrency project Shiba Inu, Shytoshi Kusama, took to Twitter to apologise on behalf of the team for misleading the community with a countdown posted from the official account last week. “Even though I can’t change that, I’m sorry for any confusion. Don’t worry, “The programmer sent a tweet. Kusama made it clear that he is not in charge of every part of the project.

According to U.Today, the cryptocurrency’s official Twitter account said last week that there would be “a special countdown.”

People in the Shiba Inu community thought the tweet was a countdown to a big announcement, like Shibarium, a Layer 2 solution that many people have been waiting for.

The “major announcement,” however, turned out to be nothing more than an update to the official website. Many people in the community didn’t like this, and it’s easy to see why they were upset by this news. One member of the Shiba Inu community tweeted, “Very, very sad.” Another SHIB fan tweeted, “The countdown was very misleading and didn’t need to be there.”

Kusama also said that he was grateful to Trophias, a Shiba Inu developer, and his team for improving the official website for the cryptocurrency.

But some users are upset that the website itself looks “quite disappointing” and “pretty amateurish.”

Trophias says in a tweet that developers can’t put out everything at once, and that the website is “just the beginning.” #Shiba Inu (SHIB) News
