BitBoy Crypto again threatens Shiba Inu founder.
The diatribe between prominent YouTuber Ben Armstrong (popularly referred to as BitBoy Crypto) and Shiba Inu team members is not ending anytime soon.
In a tweet yesterday, the famous YouTuber threatened alleged Shiba Inu founder Neyma Jahan aka Ryoshi.
BitBoy Crypto said rumor has it that the alleged Shiba Inu founder is making plans to “come after” him for revealing his identity.
“The rumor is @neyma, the founder of Shiba Inu, wants to come after me because I doxxed him for creating a pump and dump for him and his Karma DAO buddies,” said BitBoy.
He called on the alleged Shiba Inu founder to have second thoughts while threatening to checkmate Jahan if he made any wrong move against him.
The rumor is @neyma, the founder of Shiba Inu is wanting to come after me because I doxxed him for creating a pump and dump for him and his Karma DAO buddies.
Might want to think twice bud. I have your home address. One bad move and I’ll checkmate you.

BitBoy did not disclose how he plans to “checkmate” Jahan if the alleged Shiba Inu founder makes a move against him.
How It All Started
Recall that following the release of Shibarium Beta (named Puppynet); many alleged that the test network was a clone of the Rinia chain. Notably, Puppynet also shared the same Chain ID number as the Rinia chain, which made many believe the allegations.
However, Rinia developer KRYPSTEIN refuted claims that Shiba Inu cloned his code to develop Shibarium exclusively via The Crypto Basic.
KRYPSTEIN, however, said the Shibarium team used Rinia’s Chain ID. Notably, the Shiba Inu team has officially changed Puppynet chain ID to address these FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt).
The Shiba Inu team led by Shytoshi Kusama also addressed the allegations.
In a series of tweets, Kusama described the allegation as a FUD aimed at causing trouble for the 15th-largest cryptocurrency. With the Shiba Inu team denying the allegation, BitBoy threatened to “dox” the identity of the cryptocurrency’s pseudonymous founder, “Ryoshi.”
BitBoy kept to his word by releasing a 20-minute YouTube video on March 17. In the video, BitBoy alleged that Jahan, alongside some members of Karma DAO, including Andrew Lee, founded Shiba Inu.
According to BitBoy, Shiba Inu had a disorganized beginning. BitBoy also claimed that former CEO of crypto exchange FTX Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) had worked on the Shiba Inu project during its early days.
Based on BitBoy’s claim, Jahan took to Twitter to deny working with SBF on any business project. The alleged SHIB founder acknowledged that while he is one of the founders of Unification, the fund working on the Shiba Inu project, he has never had any business relationship with SBF.
He confirmed being in the same room with SBF twice, adding that they only exchanged pleasantries.
I am one of the founders of @UnificationUND (fund/$xfund). I have not been active in a leadership role for sometime, but still do my part to support the team and platform

Also recently there are unresearched rumors saying that I work/worked with SBF. This is untrue, I have been in the same room as SBF precisely twice and one time exchanged a hello with him. Zero association in business or otherwise.

Meanwhile, Kusama did not go easy on BitBoy. The lead Shiba Inu developer threw different jabs at him, mocking the popular YouTuber for creating Shiba Inu videos to sell some T-Shirts.
Aside from throwing shades, Kusama warned Bitboy to stop spreading FUD within the Shiba Inu community.
But it seems that Bitboy, with his latest tweet, has again given fire to the controversy that started in March.
