One of the co-founders of rising non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace Blur revealed his identity late Tuesday in a Twitter thread, sharing a photo of himself next to the Web3 avatar he uses for interviews.

In a series of tweets, Pacman said he “enjoyed the privacy” of being pseudo, but in the year since Blur’s launch the community had “grown exponentially” and he felt it was time to “share his identity publicly.”

He included details on a previous company that he founded and sold, Namebase, as well as other personal information. Through this, CoinDesk was able to link Pacman to a Crunchbase profile and LinkedIn profile that match these particulars and previous statements Pacman has made about his experiences, revealing his name as Tieshun Roquerre.

Pictures from his Instagram account, Github and other social media further corroborate his identity.
