Pseudonymous Shiba Inu founder Ryoshi has stepped up from social media. Earlier he said that he is ‘nobody’ and ‘not important’.
The meme coins joke went too far. All the ‘dogs’ and ‘frogs’ tokens are now treated as more than just serious investment instruments.
Thanks to Elon Musk’s tweets cryptos like DOGE are gaining popularity.
But still, not everybody knows who stands behind these cryptos and what are they about.
Moreover, the lack of communication between the platforms’ managers and its users sometimes makes it worse.
Lately, exactly the same thing happened to the Shiba Inu founder who gave up social media communication.
Shiba Inu founder says bye-bye to Twitter
The case is pseudonymous Shiba Inu founder Ryoshi deleted all of the community tweets and blog posts this week.
As with Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto, Ryoshi’s identity remains unknown since the project launched in August 2020.
Despite that, the platform developers continue to ‘actualize Ryoshi’s vision and plan for this grand experiment’ of building a decentralized meme coin ecosystem.
“I have said from the beginning, I am a nobody, I am not important. The efforts to unmask my ‘identity’ even if successful would be underwhelming. I am just some guy of no consequence tapping at a keyboard and I am replaceable. I am Ryoshi,” Ryoshi wrote on deleted Medium post.
The final post reads that one-day Ryoshi would ‘go away without notice’. Although, some members think that these posts were published by scammers who impersonated Ryoshi, Shiba Inu founder.
By the way, the leading Shiba developer Shytoshi Kusama said goodbye to Ryoshi in his blog post. As well as he reiterated a commitment to the founder’s vision for the project moving forward.
“The ethos of Ryoshi to remain anonymous and have no input on the direction of Shib makes our mythos even more mystic and impressive. We’ve built from nothing, never paid exchange for a listing, and revolutionized ‘meme’ tokens by growing exponentially,” Kusama wrote.
The news hasn’t negatively impacted the SHIB price so far.
Do Musk and Buterin manipulate the community?
Earlier there was a report suggesting Elon Musk and Vitalik Buterin might be the founders of Shiba Inu.
The theory is based on the part of another deleted tweets on April 30, 2019.
That day Vitalik Buterin invited Elon Musk to the Devcon event in October. A few minutes later Musk replied to Buterin, “What should be developed on Ethereum?”
Then Vitalik Buterin deleted his replies under Elon Musk’s initial “Ethereum” tweet.
The trick is the Shiba Inu project was launched in August 2020. So some of the community members see it as an undercover way of SHIB launching. So the founder of Shiba Inu actually might have been the duet of Elon Musk and Vitalik Buterin after all.
Anyway, Musk recently stated that his SpaceX and Tesla companies may accept payments in Dogecoin. And Buterin is way busier with the Ethereum merge.
So they can care about Shiba only at their last.
