David Gokhshtein sort of supports Shiba Inu
Former US politician and presently a founder of Gokhshtein Media David Gokhshtein has taken to Twitter to remind the community that he is not too keen on SHIB and is not following the craze surrounding this meme coin on Twitter.
However, he believes this project has the right to exist, calling it “just different” from other crypto projects. Besides, he is certain that its dev team is doing their best to build their own ecosystem.
I’m not a fan boy of $SHIB, but I think that community is just different and the devs just keep building to create their own ecosystem.— David Gokhshtein @ Work (@davidgokhshtein) July 8, 2022
Earlier, it was reported that SHIB developers are now busy building and allegedly plan to release soon the main financial components of the ecosystem -Shibarium layer-2 blockchain, SHI stablecoin and SHIBFE - the Shibarium Financial Ecosystem.
