According to a report published by Watcher Guru on April 19, Vitalik Buterin and Elon Musk could be the “behind the scene” real creator of Shiba Inu. The information immediately discarded is now getting more credibility on the web, as the Twits – that would connect the two billionaires with the coin foundation – are believed to have truly happened during that time.
Musk tweeted a one-word message titled “Ethereum” to his 26 million followers on April 30, 2019. The tweet – which received 60,000 likes and 3,000 comments – was read among the others by Buterin, who welcomed Musk to Devcon in October 2019.
Later, Musk answered, “What should be done on Ethereum?” According to Yahoo Finance, which published the whole story, Buterin replied: “globally accessible financial system, including payments, store of value, and more advanced stuff like insurance.” Although this would be an unusual conversation, there isn’t anything “strange”; it isn’t uncommon for famous people – including entrepreneurs – to fantasize over Twitter about projects and exchange ideas. However, the strange fact is that Vitalik Buterin has deleted his replies to Elon Musk‘s “Ethereum” tweet, almost as if something secret came out from this exchange of messages. And that’s when Shiba Inu comes in.
The Shiba Inu creation
Shiba Inu was founded in August 2020, with creator Ryoshi writing a Medium article titled “all hail the SHIBA! (an experiment in decentralization).” Interestingly enough, Ryoshi emphasized that he met a friend at the Devcon Osaka the previous year with influence in the (crypto) space and that he was particularly wealthy.
In an interview, Ryoshi clearly stated that Shiba Inu was based on the “vision” of two influential people. Ryoshi has never declared who these people were; however, from connecting the dots, there is a possibility that they were Elon Musk and Vitalik Buterin.
Later on, Ryoshi discusses how CEOs and other top executives have complete control, unlike ordinary people. “Usually when we see some “project” there is some CEO important guy and some tech guy and some roadmap. And hence someone plebs can b*tch at and in their minds make “accountable” for the success or failings in their life and results of token purchases.”
If Elon Musk and the Etherium founder are behind the creation of Shiba Inu, that would mean that the coin is set for maximum success and could quickly reach the price of $1. With this compelling support, Shiba could be among the leader coins in the crypto world in the long term.
Elon Musk companies – including Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) – focus on changing the world, and they’ve all succeeded beyond what anyone could have predicted. Musk has built several successful companies under a variety of different business models. He is also well known for not letting his companies behind, and without any doubt, that would also apply to Shiba Inu if he were behind it.
Shiba Inu is a cryptocurrency based on the Ethereum network. It decentralizes the ownership of digital assets, eliminates the risk of bank failures, and allows users to control their assets. The Shiba Inu vision is to combine the best features of crypto, traditional finance, and technology while creating an ecosystem beneficial to all stakeholders. Shiba Inu, hence, is not too far from the type of business Elon Musk would fund.
