SHIB accuses CoinMarketCap of listing ‘3 fake contract addresses’ that are ‘unsafe’


Shiba Inu’s official Twitter account issued a statement via the platform on January 14 addressing the listing of fake SHIB token contracts on CoinMarketCap.

The development team issued a formal notification on Twitter, alerting users of the existence of “3 fake contract addresses” for Shiba Inu (SHIB) listed on CoinMarketCap, a popular site used in the crypto market for checking volume, prices, and supply of coins.

Apparently, all three addresses, BEP20, Solana, and Terra, are invalid and should not be used in any way.  

“Please be aware that CoinMarketCap has knowingly listed 3 fake contract addresses for SHIB. None of these 3 addresses (BEP20, Solana, or Terra) are valid SHIB address and unsafe to use.”

CoinMarketCap’s stance on the matter

As per the tweet, CoinMarketCap refused to communicate with the official Shiba Inu team regarding the delisting of the contracts mentioned above, and they also “willingly allowed” scammers to “vandalize” the token’s listing on the tracker.

“CoinMarketCap has refused to communicate with the SHIB team on updates to the token page and willingly allowed malicious actors to vandalize our listing,” wrote the SHIB team.
