Creators of popular token Shiba Inu, announced a partnership with game developer PlaySide Studios to develop and release an NFT trading card game called “Shiba Eternity.” The news sent the $SHIB token soaring more than 25%.
The beta test is already live for Vietnamese players and Shiba Inu’s main developer, Shytoshi Kusama, recently teased plans to test the Indonesian market next. Vietnam and Indonesia were given testing priority due to the success of Play-to-Earn games such as Axie Infinity in the Southeast Asian region.
Additionally, a beta version of Layer 2 (L2) solution Shibarium is also slated for launch in Q3 of 2022, along with stablecoins, bonus tokens, and more card games on the platform.

What is Shiba Inu?
Shiba Inu ($SHIB) is an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency inspired by the Japanese dog breed of the same name. The token, which has a total supply of one quadrillion, is known to traders as a rival to Dogecoin ($DOGE), another well-known Shiba Inu-themed coin.
During its early days, $SHIBA was regarded by its detractors as a “meme coin,” which refers to trending cryptocurrencies that were made as a joke, but possesses very high market capitulation. Currently, Shiba Inu has evolved into a multi-token ecosystem, supporting projects such as crypto exchange Shibaswap and Shiba Inu Incubator, a project where ShibArmy creatives can share their artworks.
Currently sitting at number 12 on the crypto charts is $SHIB – the foundational token of the Shiba Inu ecosystem. As of this writing, $SHIB is trading at $0.00001622, with a $8.8 billion market cap, and a 24-hour volume of $1,553,908,361 (per CoinMarketCap).
Nicknamed the “Doge Killer,” $LEASH has a limited supply of 107,646 tokens. Next to $SHIB, it is the second token incentivized on ShibaSwap, allowing holders to earn rewards via staking. As of this writing, $LEASH is trading at $584.86, with a $62,959,017 market cap, and a 24-hour volume of $2,154,485 (per CoinMarketCap)
With a supply of 250,000,000 tokens, Bone ShibaSwap ($BONE) is a governance token that grants members of the “ShibArmy” the right to vote on proposals on community-owned decentralized organization Doggy DAO. As of this writing, $BONE is trading at $1.07, with a $7,440,687 market cap and 24-hour volume of $5,935,216 (per CoinMarketCap).
Shiboshis are a collection of 10,000 NFTs with unique traits that can be purchased or traded on various NFT markets. The collection sold out 35 minutes after its launch in October 2021.
As of this writing, a Shiboshi can be listed for as low as 0.7 $ETH ($1,317.23), and as high as 69,696,969,696,969 $ETH ($131,583,696,969,695,664), per OpenSea.
