Shibarium Metaverse from Shiba Inu Almost Here

The altcoin's community hopes that the launch of the metaverse will boost the price of the SHIB token towards their dream value.

Shiba Inu's Metaverse is Imminent

The highly anticipated Shibarium metaverse of iconic altcoin, Shiba Inu, is nearing its unveiling to the SHIBArmy crypto community, going by recent hints from Shytoshi Kusama - a top member of Shiba Inu's community. 

The latest pointers to the imminent launch of the Shibarium Metaverse came in Shytoshi Kusama's SHIB Update 5.10 on May 10. In the update, Shytoshi affirmed that much progress has been made in the development of the Shibarium. He reckons the metaverse could be launched towards the end of summer or early in the fall season, which tentatively may be between August and October. Shytoshi also stated that there would be a Shibarium hackathon soon to foster the ecosystem’s community-led building efforts, while various ongoing partnerships will power the Shiba Inu financial ecosystem.

Before now, the Shiba Inu ecosystem has been making moves towards setting up the Shibarium metaverse. On April 13, Shiba Inu began the auction of virtual plots of its metaverse to holders of the $LEASH and $SHIBOSHI ecosystem tokens who met the requirements for early access. Then on April 23, the public sale of the lands went live at a minimum price of 0.2 ETH each.

Shibarium's virtual lands collection is listed on the Opensea secondary market. The project has followed up the land sales with the addition of new experienced staff to its metaverse team. Within the past week, Marcie Jastrow - with a rich background from leading the Immersive content team at Technicolor, and Sherri Cuono - a highly proficient creative technologist, joined the team to bolster its talented capacity:

"Super excited to be an advisor on the SHIB: Metaverse project. I look forward to employing technological advancements, working with AAA teams, and listening to the SHIBArmy to achieve the Shiba Inu mission. The SHIB: Metaverse will be awe-inspiring, will expand digital ecosystems, will boost connections, and bring incredible value to all. I am passionate about building the next generation of products and services that will define the future of gaming, web, commerce, and community." Sherri, who joined Shiba's Metaverse team as an advisor on May 25, stated

The entire crypto community is waiting with bated breath for the Shibarium metaverse to go live. The SHIBArmy has been resilient in its belief that Shiba Inu would someday be a top-5 crypto ecosystem. Shibarium will provide a magical environment for the community to flourish and interact. The community also hopes that the planned features and developments would have a positive impact on the price of the $SHIB token. Currently, 1 SHIB is valued at about $0.00001065 according to Coinmarketcap. Would the launch of Shibarium and other coming Shiba Inu products buoy the $SHIB token towards hitting the community's 1-cent-mark dream? Never say never, the SHIBArmy would say.

What is Shiba Inu? 

Shiba Inu is an Ethereum-based altcoin that has the Shiba Inu—a Japanese breed of hunting dog—as its mascot. The SHIB token aspires to be an Ethereum-based alternative to Dogecoin (DOGE). Unlike Bitcoin, which is designed to be scarce, SHIB was created to be intentionally abundant — with a total supply of one quadrillion. The Shiba Inu Token ecosystem supports projects such as an NFT art incubator and the development of a decentralized exchange called Shibaswap.
