Shiba Inu meme coin has been secretly led by its founder, Ryoshi, and current Lead Developer, Shytoshi Kusama. Kusama has hinted that he might step down, as part of future plans for the Shiba Inu community.

The project is planning a tour to several locations, starting in Kyoto, Japan, called the “Treat Yourself” tour, which is linked to the upcoming TREAT token launch. The tour is part of broader efforts to realize Ryoshi’s vision for Shiba Inu.

Another key development is introducing fully homomorphic encryption for SHIB holders through the Zama AI encryption system, aiming to improve security and privacy in SHIB transactions. The team will also host “SHIBACON 2024” in Thailand, marking Kusama’s eventual withdrawal from leadership.

Ryoshi stayed anonymous despite Shiba Inu’s popularity, deleting all social media and online history to maintain anonymity. This parallel adds intrigue to Shiba Inu’s leadership changes and highlights the project’s focus on decentralization.

Kusama’s hinted departure aims to ensure Shiba Inu remains decentralized and leaderless, empowering the community to lead the project forward, aligning with the vision of a self-sustaining ecosystem that thrives independently.
