Shiba Inu founder deletes all social media information
Shiba Inu project leader says community will move forward after founder’s sudden departure
Ryoshi, the pseudonymous founder of the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency, deleted all of his tweets and personal blog posts earlier today.
“I’m not important, and one day I’ll be gone without notice. Take the SHIBA and travel up frens,” the creator of the “Dogecoin killer” wrote†
The founder of Shiba Inu has seemingly chosen to mimic the path of mysterious Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.
Satoshi left the cryptocurrency community in December 2010. The identity of the person who started it all has yet to be revealed.
It’s unclear if Ryoshi plans to return to the Shiba Inu community with new ideas.
Its founder urged lead developer Shytoshi Kusama not to say “crap nonsense” and instead focus on the ecosystem. In a recent tweetShytoshi says the Shiba Inu project will continue to move forward.
The price of the SHIB token has not been affected by Ryoshi’s sudden departure. It is currently up about 6%, according to data from CoinMarketCap†
Shiba Inu is currently valued at $6.4 billion, making it the 16th largest cryptocurrency by market cap
The cryptocurrency is down 86.40% from the record recorded at the end of October.
Ryoshi launched Shiba Inu in August 2020, then donated half of its offering to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin.
