Shiba Inu founder bids for community, deletes all blogs and tweets
Ryoshi, the pseudonymous founder of the cryptocurrency Shiba Inu, has walked away from the SHIB community, and deleted all his tweets and blogs. Shiba Inu was launched in August 2020 by an anonymous individual or group named Ryoshi as an alternative to Dogecoin (DOGE). According to its founders, it was built as an experiment in a decentralized spontaneous community building.
Ryoshi’s identity has remained unknown since the project began in August 2020. The founder of the meme-coin has often stated that he will “disappear” one day. In a deleted Medium post, the founder had reportedly said: “I’ve said from the beginning, I’m nobody, I’m not important. Even if successful, the effort to expose my ‘identity’ will be overwhelming. I’m just some guy with no result of tapping on a keyboard and I’m replaceable. I’m Ryoshi.”
He tweeted from the handle @RyoshiResearch and he is believed to be the person or group of individuals behind the Shiba Inu, the second most popular memecoin in the cryptocurrency world. Currently, while his Twitter account is active, he has deleted all his posts and changed his Twitter profile photo to include a picture of Buddhist Jetsun Milarepa, a famous Tibetan poet and yogi. The header image of his account features a picture of a cloud and a crescent moon.
Interestingly, the bio has also been deleted from his Twitter account. It read: “Founder of SHIB and LEASH. We do it for the people.”
According to Coinquora, links to SHIB for all four of SHIB’s blogs have been removed from the Medium platform. All of Ryoshi’s previous blogs have been deleted a year after they were written on May 30, 2021.
Meanwhile, prominent developers such as Shitoshi Kusama have said that the project will and will continue to “realize Ryoshi’s vision and plan for this grand experiment” to build a decentralized Memcoin ecosystem.
