With the metaverse evidently becoming one of the hottest topics in the crypto space, if not the world in general, the developers of popular meme coin Shiba Inu announced that they would be launching their very own Metaverse project in 2022, dubbed ‘The Shiberse.’
Two weeks on from revealing The Shiberse, the Shiba Inu Team has announced that virtual land in its digital world will be made available to its Shiba community “very soon.”
Shiba Inu Expands its Ecosystem
‘The Shiberse‘ is Shiba Inu’s iteration of the metaverse, created to provide users with an immersive experience for escapades in the metaverse. The lands are set to be the first items of the Shiberse to be made available to the public.
At the same time as announcing that Shiberse land purchases would be coming soon, the Shiba Inu team also revealed that it has been working on a queue system designed to prevent bots and gas wars.
To ensure exclusivity, parties interested in buying Shiberse land must be holders of LEASH, the native token of the ShibaSwap decentralized exchange, to receive priority access to “this first selling phase of land plots in our metaverse.”
The Shiba Inu team is also working on an “anti-dump system” to protect its holders. The remaining land will be unlocked and made available to the wider audience once these phases have been completed.
