Ethereum’s Founder, Vitalik Buterin, shows his Faith in Shiba Inu’s Lead Developer.
In a recent development, Vitalik Buterin has shown his trust in the lead developer of Shiba Inu, Shytoshi Kusama. This comes after his recent donation of 99 Ethereum (ETH), worth $150,287, to the official ahbap wallet in support of the victims of the devastating earthquake in Turkey.
One of the active Turkish Shiba Inu Community members, “Vet KUSAMA,” took notice of the development and shared the link of recent Vitalik donations with the Community.

This act of generosity occurred shortly after Shytoshi Kusama mentioned Ahbap addresses on Twitter as a legitimate and trustworthy recipient of donations to support the people of Turkey.
In a tweet yesterday, Shytoshi Kusama wrote: “Okay a legit place to donate to TURKEY…”
Okay a legit place to donate to #TURKEY. A small bit goes a long way. Thanks for pointing this out to me Gem Proffesor! https://t.co/HjBsN6zOYC

After Kusama Tweet, Vitalik donated 99 ETH.
It’s worth mentioning that Vitalik Buterin has a long-standing connection with Shiba Inu. In 2021, its creator, Ryoshi, gifted Vitalik 50% of the Shiba Inu supply. Vitalik made headlines when he destroyed 40% of Shiba Inu’s supply by sending it to a “dead wallet.” He later donated $1 billion worth of SHIB to the Indian crypto relief fund run by Polygon’s founder, Sandeep Nailwal.
