Ethereum co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, has just displayed his interest in the Shiba Inu community at the ETH conference in Denver.
At the conference, Buterin was seen wearing Shiba Inu pajama pants, creating a reason for excitement within the SHIB community. This was shared on Twitter a couple of hours ago by Watchers.Guru, a crypto news platform.

Vitalik Buterin and the Meme Token Shiba Inu (SHIB)
The reason why Buterin chose to display his love for Shiba Inu in public cannot be ascertained at the time of press, but he indeed started a relationship after the SHIB team gifted him 50% of the cryptocurrency’s total supply, in which he decided to burn 90% of the SHIB holdings.
Buterin shocked the whole crypto ecosystem after deciding to burn $6.7 billion worth of SHIB. The trove of more than 410 trillion tokens was sent to a dead blockchain address in just a day.
Back then, Buterin said:
“I’ve decided to burn 90% of the remaining shiba tokens in my wallet. The remaining 10% will be sent to a (not yet decided) charity with similar values to cryptorelief (preventing large-scale loss of life) but with a more long-term orientation.”
Buterin also said he would prefer cryptocurrency creators give them to charities and not to him, stating that he does not want to be a locus of power of that kind.
However, his recent show of love for Shiba Inu’s brand at the Ethereum conference in Denver has given the fast-growing community a reason to rejoice.
