Shytoshi Kusama, the current lead developer of Shiba Inu (CRYPTO:SHIB), has hinted at a future exit from the project, following the path of the project's anonymous founder, Ryoshi.

Kusama's statement came alongside plans for a community tour called the "Treat Yourself" tour, starting in Kyoto, Japan, and culminating with the "SHIBACON 2024" conference in Thailand.

The team aims to enhance the Shiba Inu ecosystem with developments like homomorphic encryption for SHIB holders and the launch of the TREAT (CRYPTO:TREAT) token.

Kusama's eventual departure is intended to ensure that Shiba Inu remains a decentralized, leaderless project, in line with Ryoshi's original vision.

Ryoshi's own exit involved deleting all social media traces and disappearing from the community, similar to Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) founder Satoshi Nakamoto.
