AS the “Dogecoin killer” Shiba Inu soars to record highs, many followers are trying to unmask its cryptic inventor Ryoshi.
The meme-inspired crypto has seen its value soar to 777 percent in 30 days, and its purported founder has come forward with a lengthy blog post dismissing the intrigue over his identity and claiming he’s merely “a nobody”.

The mystery no-name Ryoshi set his words beneath a fisherman hovering over a cliff throwing his fishing lines into the white-capped sea.
Ryoshi – which means “fisherman” in Japanese – writes: “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 tapping at a keyboard and I am replaceable. I am Ryoshi.”
Ryoshi waxed poetic about the valuable crypto token.
He described his incarnation as “a gift to yourself” that is supposed to help in the “process of self-actualization realized through the playing field of blockchain”.
The ethos of the crypto is that it’s meant to unify and be egalitarian.

“With Shiba, we have from the beginning made very clear that no-one is in charge,” according to the post.
“There is no man accountable, no person responsible and no entity has the keys to the kingdom.
“The end result of this is that you are responsible.”
NOT A ‘BILLIONAIRE’
Shockingly, the inventor confided that he doesn’t own a single Shiba Inu token, he endearingly nicknames “Shib.”
“Even as the Shiba Token ‘mooned’ I got many messages like ‘ryo, you must be a billionaire now, haha’… but the reality is still to this day I own 0 SHIB.”
Why, he asked himself.
“Well if I did, then I can’t be who I am and for now I know that I have a role to play,” he answered.
“I can’t be pure and unbiased if I am worried about price up and down and taking profits.”
Despite missing out on billions, Ryoshi tried to reassure himself he will find success: “don’t worry, the great Shiba will reward me in other ways i guess.”
