Shiba Inu's founder has deleted all his tweets and blog posts, leaving many members of the community confused.
It's worth noting that his actions came exactly one year after his final tweet, which was on May 29, 2021.
In addition to erasing his online activity, Ryoshi changed his Twitter profile image to Jetsun Milarepa, a Tibetan Siddha who is most known for being a murderer who converted to Buddhism. Milarepa is one of Tibet's most illustrious yogis and spiritual poets.
Moreover, Ryoshi's Twitter page also indicates that he is 'Decentralized,' implying that he wants Shiba Inu to continue as a collective effort without him as the central figure.
Ryoshi wrote the following two brief statements on Medium a few hours after deleting all of his blog posts on the platform, indicating that he wants Shiba Inu to continue without his input and in a decentralized manner.
"I am not important, and one day I will be gone without notice. Take the SHIBA and journey upwards frens.
We Are All Ryoshi
Every Shibarmy is Ryoshi.
It does not represent someone, but the glory of Shibarmy!
In a recent blog post, Shibarmy community member Shytoshi Kusama praised Ryoshi as the most successful anonymous founder of any organization, reiterating Ryoshi's ambition of a genuinely decentralized Shiba Inu project. The whole text of his statement about Ryoshi can be found here.
"Ryoshi was, and is, one of the most successful anonymous founders of any project, ever.
Though I don’t know his identity, his legacy lives on in the Shib token, Shib Ecosystem and all the projects we foresee to decentralize the world.
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 an exchange for a listing, and revolutionized “meme” tokens by growing exponentially."
When people are left without words and confused, a Twitter user with the handle @Atmatukabhide said,
"Does the bitcoin holder know where is satoshi nakamato gone."
