Das Gesundheitsdienstleistungsunternehmen „Ask the Doctor“ hat seiner Bilanz kürzlich 31 Milliarden Shiba Inu (SHIB)-Token hinzugefügt. Die Unterstützung des Unternehmens für den Memecoin hielt jedoch nicht lange an.
The fact that the founders of Shiba Inu did not reveal their true identity shows that the project is a scam, “Ask the Doctor” claimed. The latter even vowed to go a step further and go to court.
From consent to rejection
To date, the Toronto-based telemedicine company “Ask the Doctor” seemed like a crypto-friendly entity supporting a wide variety of digital assets. In early December, it bought 31 billion Shiba Inu tokens worth about $ 1.5 million (at the time of the deal).
The company announced that it was too Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Cardano (ADA), Polkadot (DOT), Polygon (MATIC), Dogecoin (DOGE) and Floki Inu (FLOKI) holds. “We believe that as technology advances, we have to do the same,” the team said at the time.
In a sudden turn of events, “Ask the Doctor” withdrew its support for Shiba Inu today (December 21st), calling the Memecoin a scam because of Shytoshi Kusama and the rest of the founders did not reveal their true identity. As a result, the Canadian company said it “officially removed SHIB from its balance sheet”.
Why doesn’t @ShytoshiKusama reveal himself? Is it easier for scammers to hide from law enforcement and people who are after you? $ shib is a fraudulent #shibarmy who are 1% real brainwashed and 99% are bots.

In the following hours, “Ask the Doctor” started a bashing manifesto and posted numerous tweets against Shiba Inu. In one of them, the company announced that it had sent emails to leading cryptocurrency exchanges such as Binance, Kraken and CryptoCom to remove the self-proclaimed Dogecoin killer from their platforms.
The healthcare company even claimed that the creators of the Squid Game (SQUID) fraud project “laundered” part of their fraud proceeds by purchasing Shiba Inu tokens.
The change of heart is a bit of a surprise, given that Ask The Doctor has been a proponent of Memecoins for the past several months.
In November, it allowed users to use Dogecoin (DOGE) to pay for medical assistance. Shortly afterwards, the company asked the community whether they should expand the range of cryptocurrencies and also introduce Floki Inu and Shiba Inu as payment methods. The overwhelming majority of respondents voted in favor, while Ask the Doctor tweeted:
“Looks like we need to add SHIB too […] Long live the memes! “
However, it’s worth noting that Ask The Doctor knew Shiba Inu’s team was anonymous when they decided to buy $ 1.5 million worth of SHIB.
Shiba Inu spreads worldwide
Despite the legal war that could begin with “Ask the Doctor”, Shiba Inu has continued to grow in recent months.
A few weeks ago, Luxembourg-based digital assets trading platform – Bitstamp – enabled its users to trade SHIB against US dollars and euros.
Shortly afterwards, the leading Spanish cryptocurrency exchange – Bit2Me – and the Indian platform – Unocoin – also listed the Memecoin with the increased interest of customers as the reason.
