Through a heartbreaking announcement, Kabosu, a Shiba Inu dog who was the inspiration for the popular meme coin DOGE, was declared to have fallen ill. The owner of Kabosu, Atsuko Sato, tweeted this grave news on Monday, with people immediately sending in their support and prayers across the platform.
Sato did not reveal the reasons behind the real-life Doge’s illness but confirmed that the Kabosu is in a very dangerous condition. However, Sato assured that through everyone’s support, she is confident that Kabosu will recover from this sickness.
Moreover, Shibetoshi Nakamoto, the famous self-declared developer of DOGE, took over the Twitter space, asking everyone to send in their prayers and support.
Another crypto analyst, Coin Bureau, revealed that the real-life Shiba Inu has not been eating or drinking since Christmas. The crypto analyst also pinpointed that the average lifespan of a Shiba Inu is 12-15 years, while Kabosu turned 17 this year.
Furthermore, Coin Bureau showed respect for Kabosu claiming to be one of the rarest dogs to leave a legacy of $9 billion worth of crypto.
Dogecoin had started as a meme coin, but grown rapidly this year. DOGE is currently ranked 8 among the top crypto across the world. Crypto analysts claimed that one of the key factors that were responsible for DOGE’s sudden surge this year was because of Musk’s takeover of Twitter.
At press time, DOGE is priced at $0.07474 experiencing a surge of 0.71%% over seven days. However, DOGE also fell by 1.19% in 24 hours.
