It has long been one of the industry’s greatest mysteries, and a fairly consistent topic among the SHIB Army. Now, there are those who believe they may have identified the creator of Shiba Inu, as some believe the enigmatic Shytoshi Kusama could be… Elon Musk?
Shiba Inu is a meme coin that sports one of the most passionate communities the digital asset industry has seen. Thus, their eagerness to uncover the illusive creator of the coin has been a topic of conversation. Conversely, a recent theory considers it could be the Dogefather himself, in what would be a mind-bending turn of events.
The Identity of Shytoshi Kusama
Shytoshi Kusama is a well-known pseudonym for the creator of Shiba Inu. It is a name that has become forever linked to the meme coin and often acts as the spokesperson for the developments of the ecosystem, including the long-awaited arrival of Shibarium.
Now, in an interesting turn of events, two Shiba Inu enthusiasts believe Shytoshi Kusama could actually be Elon Musk. These SHIB Army members have a very developed a very interesting theory as to why the Dogefather himself, and the head of Twitter, could be the brains behind Shiba Inu.
Following Kusama’s announcement on Telegram that “Shibarium is ready,” Musk took to Twitter to announce the new CEO of the social media platform. Ultimately, revealing a Shiba Inu dog with a “CEO” shirt. Subsequently, Kusama then changed his profile picture on Twitter to showcase the new log for Shibarium.
Thus, Twitter user @ShibaInuHodler noted the connective appearance of the Shiba Inu dog, which featured prominently in the Shibarium logo. Adding more fuel to the fire, Shytoshi responded to Elon Musk’s Tweet with an emoji, further connecting the two.
Despite the excitement from the Shiba Inu community, it is highly unlikely that Shytoshi Kusama is actually Elon Musk. It would be a testament to the otherworldy intelligence of Elon Musk to run Tesla, Twitter, SpaceX, and one of the most popular meme coins in the industry.
