According to the latest update, Shiba Inu ecosystem which is regarded as the ‘Dogecoin killer’ will release its collectible card game soon.
The announcement was made in a medium post last week by Shiba Inu lead developer, Shytoshi Kusama. According to him, as an addendum to the expected Stablecoin SHI, the emerging shib ecosystem will welcome a new collectible card game designed for its future metaverse.
In the medium post, Kusama explained:
“Needless to say Shi is a concern after watching other stable tokens collapse and billions in dollars get wiped off the market completely. *Poof* WOOF! So as for Shi, we’ve seen independent development from a group of developers in our decentralized network.
“They’ve submitted a version of Shi that seems to avoid the issues found in other moonshots, while allowing Shi to be used to counter and balance payments that need to be done without market fluctuations.
“This will be an experimental protocol, like everything decentralized that Shib does, and a more detailed and complex set of information will be released about this token as it is finalized. Bearing no insane issues, this should be released in 2022.”
Recall that the SHIB team announced the Shiba Inu Game in November 2021 which swept the entire community into a wave of excitement. According to Shytoshi Kusama, the Shiba Inu game’s narrative will span through the entire SHIB ecosystem.
The game is split into both a classic mobile game, and an NFT game that will make use of the Shiboshi NFTs. It is developed by Playside Studios and William Volk and the mobile game is designed to bring in more casual players.
In February 2022, William Volk, a developer behind the game shed more light on the project at the ShibaGuruAMA.
“I want to make clear this is not just a clone of an existing game. Collectible card game this is really kind of unique. Something that is very interesting about it is that it has a very sustainable economy. It includes for both the mobile game and for the blockchain game,”
Importantly, the Shib team is separately building a metaverse project with 100,000 land plots as virtual real estate. And, the Shiba Inu Collectible Card game, which is still in the development phase, will live in Shiba’s metaverse, according to the recent medium post.
Furthermore, according to the information from Shytoshi Kusama, TREAT, a new reward token designed for the Shib metaverse, will be applied to all the projects in the ecosystem. The digital asset will be tied to the Shiba Collectible Card Game, and also provide stability for SHI.
The developer apologized for the delay in building Shiba Metaverse and said that the release date should not have been announced in the first place.
“So yes, slower than I would have liked but still moving forward on all fronts. I’m hoping for announcements as soon as contracts get sorted.”
Importance of these developments
Although SHIBA INU originally started out as a joke and as a fierce rival to Dogecoin, the biggest memecoin in the world, it is now transitioning itself and no longer seems to be a meme-coin.
The ecosystem has now metamorphosed into one of the most sophisticated and valued cryptocurrency in circulation today. The dog-inspired Shiba Inu coin has real world utility, is not just a joke, and has become stable in terms of prices.
With the consistent addition of utilities like its own blockchain network Shibarium, its metaverse Shibverse and SHI stablecoin, the Shiba community is expected to continue to grow in acceptability and influence.
