Shib Original Vision
Shib Original Vision (SOV) is a cryptocurrency initiative associated with the Shiba Inu token. The project introduces a narrative-style description, referred to as the "Shib Original Vision," which articulates its core principles and goals. This vision is presented as a storyline that highlights the project's mission to address perceived imbalances in the cryptocurrency space and to create a community-driven and equitable financial ecosystem.
Launched on March 28, 2023, Shib Original Vision was introduced by Karma DAO with the aim of restoring the Shiba Inu community's original values through a decentralized governance. At the core of this effort is the "Inu Economic Forum," a 50+ member group entrusted with making key decisions for SOV. 
The storyline behind the Shib Original Vision emphasizes the project's inception as an endeavor to establish a coin that focuses on inclusivity, decentralization, and empowerment of individuals regardless of their financial background. The central theme revolves around the divergence of the Shiba Inu token ($SHIB) from its intended purpose and its transformation into a speculative asset. The narrative introduces key figures such as "Ryoshi" and "The Dogfather," symbolizing the leadership and contributions associated with the Shiba Inu project. 
On April 18, 2023, MetaTrust completed token smart contract audit for $SOV, ensuring security and reliability. 
On April 20, 2023, they implemented a burn bot that has been actively burning $SOV tokens 6 different times everyday, making their $SOV token deflationary. 
On May 9, 2023, capitalizing on Shib's momentum ahead of the Shibarium launch, $SOV introduced a bonding feature through Bond Protocol, allowing users to trade $SHIB for discounted $SOV (approximately -40% off spot price). The $SHIB received is then used to buy back $SOV, creating a cycle that benefits both discounted SOV holders and the token's overall value. $SOV holdings are vested for six months, encouraging long-term commitment from users. Bonding also expands the number of $SOV holders, a key on-chain metric, and offers the Shiba Inu community a discounted entry into the Shib Original Vision ecosystem. 
The $SOV is SOV's utility token, serving as a solution to perceived issues within the Shiba Inu ecosystem, aiming to combat corruption through transparent and fair token distribution. $SOV aimed to rectify these concerns through an airdrop that went live on March 28, 2023, offering equitable token allocations to active Shiba Inu token holders who have participated on-chain. The total count came up to 277,000 SHIB wallets making SOV's airdrop one of cryptocurrency's most extensive airdrops. For SHIB holders on centralized exchanges (CEXs), a portion of the token allocation is dedicated to airdrops and exchange listing negotiations, overseen by the Inu Economic Forum, consisting of Karma DAO OGs involved in Shiba Inu's early development. 
$SOV Token Metrics

Total Supply: 200,706,133,340,071 $SOV
Burned Tokens: 799,293,866,659,929 $SOV (TX1 and TX2)

This airdrop is extended to $SHIB holders who possess at least 1 $SHIB and have exhibited on-chain activity within the preceding 6 months, commencing from Block 16860452. The airdrop claim window remained open for a 7-day period before being burned.
The Dogfather: Accounting for 2.49% of the total supply, this airdrop is allocated to The Dogfather, the undisclosed co-creator of $SHIB ideas. The Dogfather's contributions were essential to the early development of the token but were disrupted by Ryoshi.
