The mysterious founder of the Shiba Inu publically appeared all masked up, rocking a phenomenal outfit.

In an unexpected turn of events, Shiba Inu’s pseudonymous founder, Shytoshi Kusama, publicly appeared for the first time ever. The surprising revelation excited the SHIB community.   

Since Shiba Inu’s launch in August 2020, Kusama has remained unidentified, choosing to stay anonymous even as the coin gained popularity.    

The crypto asset posted on X that its founder stole the show at its first public appearance while showcasing an amazing outfit. However, there is a big catch here: It was impossible to verify if the individual behind the masks was indeed the real SHIB leader, as his face remained covered. 

“See you tomorrow at around noon in the IVS Official Shiba Inu booth for my first-ever meet and greet. I’m excited to meet you all in Kyoto,” Kusama tweeted.

The post quickly struck a chord with the SHIB community, sparking excitement and eager anticipation.
