A team member behind the Shiba Inu-based ecosystem and layer two protocol, Shibarium, posted a warning on his official X handle. The layer two protocol has been gaining popularity despite the decline in prices across the crypto market, but investors should keep a few things in mind, this team member said.
Shiba Inu Investors Should Follow These Steps In the post, the Shibarium team member spoke about the critical items every crypto investor, including the Shibarium users or “Shibizens” should follow. The Shibarium team member, “Lucie,” asked investors to research the projects before injecting any capital.
In the financial world and crypto, people are the most vulnerable when pouring money into projects without knowing the technology, mechanism, teams, and strategists that support them. Data from a crypto analytics firm, Chainalysis, indicates that crypto investors lost billions of dollars to bad actors/projects in 2023 alone.
As the chart below shows, this year, criminals have taken $5 billion from users than in 2022. Still, the number is significant and urges Shiba Inu and crypto investors to take precautions.

A “strong” community has been an important sign of any project. These users and investors often create initiatives of their own and support new users and the project regardless of the variations in the market.
The Shibarium team member added the following as additional tips for Shiba Inu holders or crypto investors:
Assess Risks: Consider market volatility and potential scams. Seek Professional Advice: Consult experts if needed (…). Stay Informed: Keep up with the latest news and developments. Remember, investing in crypto carries risks, so make informed decisions and only invest what you can afford to lose.
