These two users, JEF SHIBA INU SOLDIER and johnarrow hawkfeather, accused Kusama of doing nothing but making promises about burning the rest of the SHIB supply, comparing him to Brazilian politicians, whom they are apparently not fond of.

Shytoshi then responded that neither he nor the whole SHIB community own the entire Shiba Inu supply that is currently circulating out there. In order to burn the remains of the supply, the community needs to buy it, the developer stated.
