Once upon a time, there was a really special dog, that dog was a Shiba Inu, and this dog galvanized several folks around the world to speculate cash into tokens with the dog’s image on it.
According to the SHIBA INU website, SHIB is the “DOGECOIN KILLER” and is listed on their own ShibaSwap, a DEX. The Shiba Inu coin was created anonymously in August 2020 under the pseudonym “Ryoshi.”
Ryoshi says concerning himself that he’s a no-one and there is no need to unmask his identity. He said that even if efforts are made to unmask his identity, it will be underwhelming.
