Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) lead developer, Shytoshi Kusama, caught the public’s eye at the IVS2024 conference last weekend. In his first appearance before a physical audience, Kusama was wearing a black and gray Samurai suit, complemented by a face mask.

Shytoshi Kusama Enters the Spotlight in Kyoto

Several videos featuring Kusama greeting fans in the SHIB Token booth surfaced online on July 6, 2024, as SHIB fans shared their experiences on X and Discord. Today, IVS2024, the largest start-up conference in Japan, also posted a picture with Kusama on their official X account.

The conference fused Japanese cultural roots with technological advancement. SHIB sparked excitement in the crowd, who asked the masked Shiba Inu leader to take selfies and videos.

SHIB’s Mysterious Lead Reveals Next Destination

In a surprising turn of events, Kusama took to X to unveil India as his next destination. Posing in the trademark SHIB Samurai suit, Shytoshi Kusama’s message congratulated the organizers on a successful event in Kyoto, Japan. “Thank you, Kyoto! Great event @IVS_Official ! Next stop… Mumbai!”

SHIB Army members asked Kusama to come to Delhi, India, and Indonesia next. However, some sarcastic comments were made by followers who expected a boost in Shiba Inu’s burn rate. SHIB enthusiast ELVI uttered: “Burn Shiba that’s all we want. Stop cos playing,” while others posted screenshots, assuming the SHIB lead’s gender.

SHIB is among India’s three most popular cryptocurrencies, making Kusama’s next stop on the global visit bucket list a logical one. Whilst the location and the event are not known yet, they’re expected to feature interactive sessions, including an Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) session with SHIB’s mystified lead developer.

On the Flipside

  • Comments on X among SHIB Army members suggest strong reservations about Kusama being the person behind the costume.

Why This Matters

Participating in the largest Japanese start-up conference gives Shiba Inu’s brand a powerful boost, while Kusama’s engagement with the community builds confidence in SHIB.
