Shiba Inu (SHIB) has many irons in the fire this week, as the leading memecoin gets ready for the launch of the “Shiba Eternity” card game. In addition to the hype surrounding the new SHIB game, Shibarium is also set to be released by the end of the year. On top of that, the SHIB Army seems to be enjoying the heat, as the burn rate of the dog-themed coin rose by 255% in the last 24 hours.
Shibburn, The Shiba Inu (SHIB) virtual bonfire, officially announced that there’s been nearly 200 million SHIB tokens set ablaze in the last 24 hours. Interestingly, 139 out of 200 million were burnt in a single transaction. One reason behind this act could be the attempt to trigger a spike in Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) price, but the developers of Shiba Inu definitely added some extra motivation with $BONE rewardcs and the upcoming SB Visa Card.
Shiba Eternity Is Highly Strategic, Says Mr. Kusama
Despite the official launch date still unknown, SHIB’s lead developer Shytoshi Kusama has revealed on Discord that the hugely anticipated game will first be released on mobile. As a result, the Shiboshi NFTs will not be included in the initial release. However, the game developed by PlaySide Studios is going to be available on both iOS and Android.
Moreover, in a conversation with one of Shiba Inu’s social influencers, lead developer Kusama revealed that the gameplay resembles “Hearthstone,” a big hit among online card games. Finally, the mysterious lead developer revealed the philosophy behind the game’s title: “I hope when you realize that the game is about our future eternity in peace, you will see it was a good choice.”
