Gokhshtein insists he’s the unofficial leader of Shiba Inu.
Prominent cryptocurrency influencer David Gokhshtein has reiterated again that he is the unofficial leader of Shiba Inu (SHIB). Gokhshtein’s recent claim comes less than two weeks after he declared himself as the unofficial Shiba Inu leader.
In a tweet today, Gokhshtein said: “I’m still the unofficial leader of SHIB.”
SHIB Community Reacts
As expected, the tweet has gotten lots of engagement from members of the Shiba Inu community. So far, the tweet has gotten over 600 likes and more than 85 retweets.
SHIB holders took to the comment section to ask the self-acclaimed unofficial leader of Shiba Inu some questions about the leading canine-themed cryptocurrency.
“So when Lambo?” @Codyweavermusic asked Gokhshtein. When Lambo (Wen Lambo) is a phrase used to ask someone in crypto when people will get rich by selling their crypto holdings; in this context, the Shiba Inu supporter quizzed Gokhshtein to give a date when the price of SHIB will rally to the level where existing investors will become rich by selling the asset class.
Responding to the question, Gokhshtein, who claims to be the unofficial leader of Shiba Inu, said he has no clue.

Gokhshtein’s Unending Support for Shiba Inu
Meanwhile, the reason behind Gokhshtein’s claim as the unofficial leader of Shiba Inu could be his constant promotion of SHIB. The founder of Gokhshtein Media is a known Shiba Inu proponent who usually takes to his social media accounts to promote the widespread adoption of the token.
Last month, Gokhshtein said he regretted not putting all his capital on Shiba Inu when investing in meme tokens.
“When it came to meme tokens, I should have just [gone] all in on SHIB,” he said.
The reason for the comment is because of the tremendous rally Shiba Inu has recorded since the token went live in August 2020. According to data on Coingecko, Shiba Inu is up 163,131x from its All-Time Low (ATL) of $0.000000000056.
Earlier this month, Gokhshtein noted that Shiba Inu had given half the people he knows more gains than Bitcoin, given the tremendous rally of the canine-themed cryptocurrency. At press time, Shiba Inu is changing hands at $0.00000920, up 1% in the past 24 hours.
SHIB Slumps Amid FTX Collapse
The price of Shiba Inu was also affected following the collapse of the FTX exchange. Recall that after FTX filed for bankruptcy, the cryptocurrency exchange was hacked, and the attackers carted away several crypto assets, including SHIB. It is noteworthy that 593 billion SHIB tokens were stolen from the exchange. Hours after the hack, the perpetrators swapped 400B SHIB for Ethereum, plunging the price of the canine-themed cryptocurrency by 7%.
Things have been stable for Shiba Inu in the past few days, as the SHIB continues to trade around $0.00000900. Despite the massive collapse of SHIB’s price, enthusiasts of the cryptocurrency, including Gokhshtein, are optimistic that the asset’s price will rally in the next bull run.
