U.Today – In an homage to the beloved Kabosu, who recently passed away, founder Charles Hoskinson has posted a memetic statement that resonates deeply within the crypto community.

In a tweet, Hoskinson posted a GIF image that captioned “I have been and will always be your friend,” to which he wrote, “Doge to .” The Cardano founder was responding to a post on the passing of Kabosu.

Kabosu, the face of and the iconic “Doge” meme, left a paw print on the hearts of many. Her passing has been felt across the internet, uniting diverse communities in remembrance of the joy she brought to the world.

The Japanese Shiba Inu inspired a generation of online jokes after her skeptical glance became a symbol of internet humor in 2010. The recent comment by the Cardano founder not only pays tribute to Kabosu’s legacy but also highlights the camaraderie that exists within the crypto space.
