Without warning, Ryoshi – the founder of Shiba Inu – deleted all of their blog posts and cleaned out their Twitter. The last tweet was back in May 2021 and has not released any big announcement ever since. Is the sudden cleaning of the digital footprint good or bad?
Possible Teaser or Potential Abandonment?
Ryoshi deleted all of their tweets and blogs, but shortly afterward changed their Twitter profile photo to Buddhist Jetsun Milarepa. The header photograph has also changed.
Ryoshi’s Twitter profile also claims they’re “Decentralized,” which might indicate they want Shiba Inu to continue as a community effort without them in command.
Obviously, this does not mean that the project’s founder/s has abandoned it. Many people, on the other hand, feel that the shift is a precursor to something more substantial. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, and speculation could be anything.
However, Ryoshi removed all of their Medium blog entries after deleting all of their Medium blog posts, with the exception of the two short postings, indicating that they want Shiba Inu to develop without his input and in a decentralized setting.
SHIB in 2022
Shiba Inu has seen significant growth since its launch, with its market capitalization reaching over $600 million in January of 2021. However, Shiba Inu has been accused of being a clone of Dogecoin and having no real innovation or use case. While there is some truth to these accusations, Shiba Inu has nonetheless carved out a niche for itself in the cryptocurrency community and has become one of the most popular altcoins.
Looking ahead to 2022, it will be interesting to see how Shiba Inu progresses. Will it continue to grow in popularity, or will it fade into obscurity? Only time will tell. However, one thing is for sure: Shiba Inu is a cryptocurrency that is worth keeping an eye on – despite Ryoshi not showing any activity regarding the future of the token.
