Justin Bons, Cyber Capital CTO and founder, stated in a recent tweet that out of the top 50 cryptocurrencies in terms of market capitalization, only 32 are technically decentralized.

Shiba Inu's pseudonymous creator, Ryoshi, launched Shiba Inu as an alternative to Dogecoin in August 2020. In May 2022, a year after his last medium post, Ryoshi deleted all of his posts and articles and exited the social media scene.

In December 2021, Shiba Inu announced the first phase of DOGGY DAO, called DAO 1 (Beta), which was released on ShibaSwap to provide immediate power to the community as regards decision-making.
According to the Shiba Inu team, DOGGY DAO was meant to be released in a stage-by-stage and phased manner.

A section of the SHIB Army took exception to Kusama's "hostile Shiba Inu community takeover," at which ShibaKraken, an official core team member, lashed out on Twitter.
As reported by U.Today, a recent poll of the Shiba Inu community revealed that, despite the recent upheaval within the project's inner circle, the majority of its members still support lead developer Shytoshi Kusama.
