The competition in the meme coin space has mainly been between the pioneer meme coin, Dogecoin (DOGE), and the fast-rising Shiba Inu (SHIB).
While Dogecoin still ranks above Shiba Inu in market cap, the Shiba Army has been given something to boast about with a new partnership.
Shiba Enters Blockchain Gaming
After announcing a massive token burn to prepare its entrance into blockchain gaming and the trillion-dollar metaverse, the Shiba Inu Games has announced a partnership with Australia’s largest video game developer, PlaySide Studios.
Although Shiba Inu Games is a separate entity, it exists within the larger Shiba ecosystem.
According to the announcement, the partnership aims to develop a new game over the next eight months that is based on a collection of non-fungible tokens, “Shiboshi” – a multiplayer Collectable Card Game (CCG).
An excerpt from the studio’s press statement outlines,
"PlaySide will provide production, design, engineering, art, user interface, and experience development services to Shiba Inu Games on a new game title during the 8-month term of the agreement."
Shiba Games has proposed an early 2023 launch date for Shiboshi. In addition, the multiplayer game is planned to be deployed on multiple platforms, with a particular focus on mobile platforms.
On The Flipside
- Despite the promising nature of these developments, Shiba Inu (SHIB) continues to underperform. The token is currently down by almost 60% from its all-time high
