New Theories Emerge on Shiba Inu’s Creator: BoringSleuth Leads the Investigation

Recent developments in the cryptocurrency community have reignited the debate surrounding the identity of Ryoshi, the elusive creator of the blockchain network Shiba Inu. A cryptocurrency investigator known by the username BoringSleuth (TruthLabs) has put forth a series of theories that suggest Ryoshi may not be a single individual but could be a composite of two or more people.

Sharing a detailed examination of his findings, BoringSleuth wrote:

BoringSleuth proposed that Ryoshi could be a collaboration between two individuals, Ryo Suzuki and Tsuyoshi Maruyama, both of whom are said to have connections to the B2C2 Group, a known crypto liquidity provider. The B2C2 Group’s role as a market maker for Robinhood, a platform that once held a significant portion of the Shiba Inu supply, adds another layer of intrigue to these theories. Notably, the names of Ryo Suzuki and Tsuyoshi Maruyama are absent from the list of advisors on B2C2’s official website, fueling further speculation.

Adding to the complexity, BoringSleuth highlighted the activities of the Shiba Inu Deployer wallet, which was responsible for launching the $SHIB token. Initially set up in 2018 for trading CryptoKitties, this wallet later made a series of Ethereum transfers to another wallet, identified as 0x2135. This wallet is reportedly connected to multiple high-profile individuals and entities, including Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin.

Further, BoringSleuth pointed out that the initial Ethereum transfers from the Shiba Inu Deployer wallet were directed to a personal wallet that had also been used by Vitalik Buterin. This information has led to increased scrutiny and discussion within the cryptocurrency community.

While these theories have stirred debate, they have also been met with skepticism and defense from some quarters of the Shiba Inu community. An X user identified as LucieSHIB has dismissed the theories as speculative. She emphasized that Ryoshi left the Shiba Inu project in May 2021 and questioned the logic behind the notion that Ryoshi could be an “evil mastermind”, especially since the keys to the Shiba Inu supply were burned.

As the debate continues, it’s evident that the quest to unmask Ryoshi remains an ongoing narrative that adds another layer of complexity to the already intricate world of cryptocurrencies. Whether these theories would be substantiated remains to be seen, but they have undoubtedly sparked a renewed interest in the enigma that is Ryoshi.
