In a recent turn of events, Marcie Jastrow, the advisor for the Shiba Inu Metaverse project, has found herself at the center of controversy surrounding allegations of scam affiliation.

The accusations surfaced after Jastrow dissociated herself from a company and removed any trace of her association with it on her LinkedIn account. Trophias, a former member of the SHIB Defense Breed, went as far as labeling Jastrow a “professional scammer.”

Jastrow’s Response

Jastrow swiftly responded to these allegations, vehemently denying any involvement in scams. She clarified that her decision to dissociate from the company was driven by disputes over intellectual property rights, rather than any fraudulent activities.

Jastrow emphasized that the situation had become a distraction, leading her to sever all ties with the company. While she did not address Trophias directly, her statement aimed to set the record straight.

However, Jastrow’s call for assistance for the Welly Friends project, which focuses on blockchain adoption in the agricultural scene, drew criticism from some quarters.

Detractors argued that she should prioritize the Shiba Inu Metaverse project instead. The conflicting opinions regarding Jastrow’s priorities and resource allocation have further fueled the ongoing debate.

Investors, despite the lack of recent updates on the Shiba Inu Metaverse project’s progress, have maintained a positive outlook. Their confidence is evident from the Shibpreme team’s purchase of approximately 73 Metaverse lands for an astonishing $27,503 back in June 2023.

Shiba Inu Metaverse Scrutiny

The Shiba Inu Metaverse project, which has been relatively quiet in the headlines as development progresses behind the scenes, now finds itself under scrutiny due to the allegations surrounding Jastrow. Trophias’ accusations have raised questions about the project’s integrity, but without concrete evidence, it is difficult to ascertain the veracity of the claims.

The ongoing dispute over intellectual property rights adds another layer of complexity to the situation. While Jastrow has clarified her stance, the lack of transparency surrounding the specifics of the dispute leaves room for speculation. It remains to be seen how the project will address these concerns and provide clarity to investors and supporters.
