Kusama issues major security guidelines to SHIB army

Earlier this week, as covered by U.Today, the mysterious SHIB leader Kusama issued a major warning to the Shiba Inu community related to the security of their digital asset holdings.

He tweeted that SHIB fans should only buy cold wallets directly from producers in order to avoid losing their cryptocurrencies to scammers and hackers. Kusama called that tweet a "security sidenote."

It was issued just ahead of the day next week when the preordered 5,000 SHIB cold wallets will begin to be delivered by the Swiss crypto wallet maker Tangem, which partnered with the Shiba Inu team a few months ago.

These wallets size of a plastic bank card will enable users to hold more than 6,000 digital currencies, including SHIB.
