The Shiba Inu community is abuzz with speculation as YouTuber Ben Armstrong threatens to reveal the identity of the lead developer of meme coin Shiba Inu.
In a tweet posted earlier today, BitBoy hinted that he will "dox the founder" of the popular cryptocurrency, sparking a flurry of activity on the social media platform.

The drama began when user Rancune (@Rancune_eth) shared a tweet that claimed Shibarium is a "ripped chain from Rinia." According to Rancune, the founders forgot to change the chain ID, which has led to accusations of manipulation and silencing.
In a follow-up tweet, BitBoy also claimed that there was a lot of evidence to support the claim that the lead developer was disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, but that he was only involved early on.

However, the conversation took a sharp turn when Shytoshi Kusama joined in.
In his latest tweet, Kusama appeared to challenge BitBoy, asking him how his T-shirt sales were doing and suggesting that he provide receipts.
As reported by U.Today, the lead Shiba Inu developer also refuted ludicrous rumors that he was Tesla CEO Elon Musk in mid-February.
The Shiba Inu drama is sure to continue as users eagerly await the next twist in the tale.
