In a surprising development, the mysterious identity of Shiba Inu’s creator has come to the fore on Monday. Going by the name ‘Ryoshi’, the SHIB founder has always concealed his or her identity.
Ryoshi has on Monday deleted all the Twitter activity, besides removing all his four blogs on the Medium platform. The Twitter handle wears a blank look with all the previous tweets, media and likes deleted.
Interestingly, the SHIB founder marked his location as ‘Decentalized’, with close to 2 lakh followers. Ryoshi previously addressed himself as ‘SHIB and LEASH Founder’.
SHIB Founder Blogs Deleted
Also, Ryoshi deleted all the four blogs on Medium. To that effect, the SHIB creator deleted all the Medium content from the past. This essentially means that Ryoshi now has zero presence in social media.
SHIB enthusiasts and supporters have mixed reactions to this latest development. While some suggested this could be a precursor to some good news, many expressed confusion around it.
Amid confusion and debate around the move, the mysterious Ryoshi sent out a message through his Medium account. Rather unclearly, Ryoshi implied he could one day be gone forever without any notice.
A SHIB supporter with Twitter name Lady Crypto felt Ryoshi wanted to leave behind a legacy. She said in a tweet, “Looks like it’s up to SHIB ARMY to realize the dream of Ryoshi’s Vision! For teh people! We CAN do this!”
Another enthusiast, SHIB JOE, said the token’s roadmap is not finished yet. “We Are Ryoshi. Ryoshi’s roadmap is yet to be completed and thus the story of #SHIB continues.”
‘The SHIBA Journey’
In line with his previous submissions station he is not important, the SHIB creator wrote today:
“I am not important, and one day I will be gone without notice. Take the SHIBA and journey upwards frens.”
In one of the Medium blogs, he explained,
“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 topping at a keyboard and I am replaceable. I am Ryoshi.”
Meanwhile, SHIB price is in the upward trajectory compared to 24 hours ago. As of writing, SHIB was trading at $0.000012, up 0.24% in 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
Recently, big Ethereum (ETH) whales took advantage of the market crash induced by the Terra meltdown. Despite turbulence, SHIB emerged as the top choice of the whales. SHIB became the biggest holding of the top 500 ETH whales, as per recent data. The token managed to flip the FTX token (FTT) to reach the top spot.
