Shiba Inu Lead Reacts to KNINE Launch

KNINE’s unveiling also attracted Shiba Inu’s leader developer, Shytoshi Kusama, who used the opportunity to caution community members against interacting with information from unofficial sources.

“Only use official guys here. [There are] lots of scammers [out there]. Pay attention,” Kusama urged the community.

Before KNINE’s official launch on Thursday, March 7, fraudulent entities falsely asserted that the token was already trading on Uniswap, attempting to sell counterfeit tokens to unwary individuals.

Initially, the K9 Finance team deployed KNINE but halted its trading, implementing an unlocking schedule that concluded yesterday. Accordingly, the team injected $100k liquidity into KNINE to facilitate its trading availability via the Uniswap DEX.

Members of the crypto community have voiced a bullish stance for KNINE, given the team’s affiliation with Shiba Inu. Besides, the token has surged over 240% since its launch.

Shiba Inu Partner K9 Finance

Notably, K9 Finance is an official liquid staking protocol on Shiba Inu’s blockchain Shibarium. Its goal is to establish the fundamental principles of DeFi within the Shibarium ecosystem.

Last month, the Shiba Inu team announced K9 Finance as its official partner for Shibarium. Consequently, K9 Finance became a Shibarium validator, enabling stakers to earn rewards in the BONE token.

The newly launched KNINE token governs K9 Finance’s decentralized DAO. It allows holders to stake the asset and earn DAO fees and real yield from validators.
