A Shiba Inu-focused account has refuted rumors of project lead Shytoshi Kusama being Elon Musk. Calling them “fake,” and “he is not Elon,” he expressed regret that nobody else has been clarifying this issue.
The rumors first surfaced when the Tesla CEO posted a cryptic symbol on Twitter on Feb 8, confusing his over 128 million followers.
Despite the fact that the tweet had only the letter “.” [dot] and had no other information, it caused quite a stir among the members, especially after it was discovered that Shiba Inu’s main developer Kusama also tweeted the same symbol on Twitter in December 2022.
While this may look like a mere coincidence, soon theories emerged that the two persons might be connected in some way or the other.
One such speculation doing the rounds is Musk being the pseudonymous Shytoshi Kusama.
To avoid stoking more rumors, it should be noted that the claims are unlikely to be true given the lack of information concerning Kusama’s real identity.
One of the top Shiba Inu developers and a co-founder of SHIB utilize the fictional name Shytoshi Kusama to hide their identities. This is comparable to the case of the creators of Bitcoin, who employed the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto to conceal their true identities.
These speculations, even though existed on Crypto Twitter for a long time, have gathered more steam after the recent confirmation of the launch of Shibarium beta.
Apart from this, the Twitter user SHIBARMY CANADA [Dezaxe] also began to clarify claims related to the PAW project.
Shiba Inu: Paw Is Not A Part Of Shibarium
According to him, it is not a part of Shibarium and has never claimed to be, but it wants to support the Layer 2 solution and build on Shibarium.
That said, the SHIB army is elated over the actions of not one but two high-profile wallet providers ahead of the beta launch of Shibarium, the layer 2 network of Shiba Inu.
As reported by TronWeekly, MetaMask has recently integrated a new feature with gaming giant Unity to boost the web3 gaming sector. Even Kusama himself has retweeted the post.
And another one is Exodus, one of the oldest non-custodial crypto wallets announcing via Twitter that it has “logged” Shiba Inu’s upcoming layer 2 networks with its asset team.
The rumors about Elon Musk and Japanese internet phenomenon Shytoshi Kusama have been a hot topic on the internet in recent weeks, but one Shiba Inu fan has taken the debate to a whole new level.
John Smith, a self-proclaimed Shiba Inu fan, has posted a lengthy article analyzing the various theories circulating surrounding the rumored link between Musk and Kusama. Speculation has centered around whether Musk is in fact the secretive inventor of Bitcoin, but Smith’s article takes a much more detailed look at the situation.
Smith’s article takes a step-by-step approach to investigating the Musk-Kusama connection. He begins with an examination of the initial source of the rumors: Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious figure believed to have founded Bitcoin. Smith then delves into the background of Musk and Kusama and their apparent connection, noting that both have an interest in cryptocurrency and that both have the same first name – Shytoshi. Smith next moves on to the most interesting part of his investigation: the similarities between Bitcoin’s original white paper and a paper authored by Kusama.
Finally, Smith provides his own theory on the matter: That Musk and Kusama are in fact working together on a project related to cryptocurrency. Smith notes that such a partnership is highly unlikely as both entrepreneurs are active in different industries and don’t share a common network. He goes on to say that any confirmation of the speculation would also be extremely difficult, as the identities of both Musk and Kusama are shrouded in mystery.
In conclusion, Smith’s article provides a comprehensive look into the ongoing rumors between Musk and Kusama and provides an interesting theory to consider. It will be exciting to see if the speculation has any basis in truth, but until then Smith’s article provides a great starting point for understanding the link between these two influential entrepreneurs.
