Shytoshi Kusama, the pseudonymous lead developer of the Shiba Inu project, has once again changed his location marks on the X (formerly Twitter) platform.

El Salvador and Crypto

It bears mentioning that El Salvador is a Bitcoin-friendly nation, which officially adopted BTC as a legal tender in 2021. Since El Salvador adopted Bitcoin as a legal tender, it has not declared any intention to support any altcoins, including Shiba Inu.

Famous Bitcoin maximalist Max Keiser has made it known on several occasions that El Salvador does not intend to support altcoins.

Despite El Salvador’s unfriendly position toward altcoins, Kusama’s location marker on the X platform suggests that the Shiba Inu lead developer is currently in the country.

Kusama Location Marks See Multiple Modifications in Weeks

Meanwhile, the Kusama’s location marker on the X platform has been updated multiple times. Kusama’s X location marks have changed in just a few weeks from Singapore, Australia, Dubai, Hong Kong, and now El Salvador.

The community has tried to link each location modification to any popular activity happening in the country at that particular time.

For instance, when the location changed to Japan, KURO speculated that Kusama could be in the country for holidays. KURO noted that the modification period coincides with tourists visiting Japan for holidays due to the snow quality.

Potential Reasons Behind Kusama Location Changes

Following the constant change of Kusama’s location marks, Shiba Inu enthusiasts have attempted to guess the rationale behind the action.

Some speculated that Kusama could be on a global tour, while others guessed he is working with top developers across these countries to roll out new initiatives for Shiba Inu.

However, other fans believe Kusama is not traveling anywhere, as reflected in his X location marks. People with this notion speculated that the lead developer is manually changing his location from a particular place.

he is going nowhere just sitting one place and changing his locations on 😂😂😂😂

The constant change of Kusama’s location could be a riddle by the lead developer to demonstrate how Shiba Inu’s popularity would surge in the future.

At press time, it is unclear why Kusama’s location mark has seen several modifications in weeks.

While there is a likelihood that Kusama is changing his location manually, it is also possible that the lead developer could be on tour to foster critical partnerships for Shiba Inu.
