Shiba Inu is launching Shiba Eternity, a collectible card game, on Oct. 6. The GameFi utility is another facet to the memcoin’s expanding ecosystem.
Shiba Eternity Launch Date Oct. 6
Shiba Eternity, Shiba Inu’s much-awaited collectible card game, has been rescheduled to go live on Oct. 6.
Earlier, in a Twitter Spaces event on Sept. 23, developers said the game would launch on Oct. 1, and the day will be marked communitywide as “download day” – a trend aimed at making the game most downloaded on iOS and Google Play Store.
However, lead developer Shytoshi Kusama later announced that only the lore and plans concerning the game would be made public on Oct. 1. Moreover, Kusama added he’s been playing the game for quite some time now and is excited to see it go public finally.
Before announcing the launch date, the game was initially tested in Vietnam and then Australia, becoming an instant hit among players in both countries. Shiba Eternity boasts a Japanese martial arts theme: Each player has their own “Shiboshi” or a virtual canine that they have to protect from others.
In addition, players can either pick fighter cards or weapon cards. The weapon cards will allow the player to attack their opponent, while fighter cards will contain characters with unique abilities to carry out a fight on behalf of Shiboshi.
Meme coins have long been criticized for not offering users anything besides just a huge supply of tokens. Shiba Inu aims to change that.
If the launch of Shiba Eternity is a success, the GameFi utility could be big for Shiba’s ecosystem, which has already made significant progress.
The Shiba ecosystem already comprises:
A Liquidity Pool
Governance token BONE
Fundraising campaign for Shiba Inu Rescue Association.
Regardless of how the game performs, Shiba Eternity is another step in Shiba Inu’s journey to becoming more than “just” a memecoin.
