After an announcement months ago in November of 2021, the Shiba Inu mobile application game, Shiba Eternity, will finally be released this upcoming October 1, in the US and other territories. The NFT-based game has been long anticipated by members of the Shiba Inu holder community.
The pseudonymous lead for the Shiba Inu blockchain project, Shytoshi Kusama, announced the release schedule and other information recently while on Twitter Spaces. Shytoshi also announced special features like a 5% burn mechanism on profits generated from Shiba Eternity that will be included in the gaming implementation.
Looking Into The Design Of Shiba Eternity
Shiba Eternity is categorized as a P2E (Play-to-Earn) NFT-based, a web3-aligned game which can also be played in a mobile environment. The game is actually described as being two games in one by many, having the synergy of a mobile game and at the same time, a completely blockchain-based interface as well, essentially running side by side.
One aspect of the Shiba Eternity game, believed to be aimed at adopting engagement by traditional gamers, is described as a classic mobile game and is therefore not aligned with the blockchain environment. The other aspect of the soon-releasing Shiba Eternity is a blockchain-aligned game which is said to be integrated with the Shiboshi NFT ecosystem, also within the Shiba Inu collective decentralized ecosystem.
How Will Shiba Eternity Enhance The Shiba Inu Ecosystem?
The announcement made recently by Shytoshi Kusama revealed that Shiba will burn 5% of all profits received from the Shiba Eternity game. All operations within the gaming environment will be powered by the underlying Shiba Inu token, the native cryptocurrency of the Shiba Inu platform. This has been treated as major Shiba Inu token news, for a community which is not at all foreign to the concept of token burns. Since the start of the inflationary cryptocurrency token, launched in August 2020, there have been over 410 trillion Shiba Inu tokens burned from the supply in total. The 5% burn is being established as a mechanism which will remain consistent in the Shiba Eternity gaming and token infrastructure.
Shiba Eternity is asking its token holder community and supporters to download the game as soon as it is released in order to gain the attention of gamers in the traditional mobile gaming space. The 5% burns were mentioned as part of incentivization for this plan, which can help further establish SHIB token value, which would be positive for holders. The plan is articulated by Shytoshi as one which seeks to get Shiba Eternity ranked on the respective mobile application stores in order to trend and gain attention organically.
Already Live In Other Parts Of The World
The Shiba Eternity game has been live for residents of Vietnam since September 5, and for residents within the borders of Australia since September 17. While launched in these territories, this live version of Shiba Eternity has been available to be tested real-time and assessed by the Shiba Inu contributing developers in preparation for the US launch on October 1.
While the new Shiba Eternity game has been anticipated for quite some time by the Shiba Inu community, the time is perhaps just right. In recent months Shiba Inu has continued to develop its ecosystem and use cases for its associated $SHIB crypto token. Several weeks ago the community launched its Shib Burn Visa protocol which burns SHIB crypto with every transaction.
