"Now you don't have to worry about scammers (at least on this site) claiming they are me," he added. 

The news of Kusama's blue check mark was met with a great deal of excitement within the SHIB community, with many users taking to Twitter to express their congratulations.

The SHIB token is a meme-inspired cryptocurrency that has seen a meteoric rise in popularity in recent months, thanks in large part to the support of high-profile figures such as Musk.

Kusama, who goes by the handle @ShytoshiKusama on Twitter, has been one of the driving forces behind the SHIB token.

The blue check mark on Twitter has been a sign of verified accounts belonging to celebrities, public figures, and companies for many years. It was introduced as a measure to prevent impersonation.

However, when Musk took over Twitter, he introduced a paid monthly subscription service called Twitter Blue, which allows users to opt-in and get access to select new features, including an additional blue check mark on their account.

The service provided the blue tick mark to anyone willing to pay $8 per month, leading to an increase in chaos on the platform. Twitter was inundated with fake accounts imitating businesses and well-known personalities. 

Kusama claims that the community no longer has to worry about scammers impersonating him, this might not be the case since fraudsters could potentially pay for a blue check mark in order to promote crypto scams.
