The community behind the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Shiba Inu ($SHIB) appears to be enjoying its collectible card game Shiba Eternity, which was released earlier this month and allows players to “fight without violence” with Shiboshis.
The game has so far amassed a 4.6 rating out of 5 on the Google Play store, with over 11,000 users reviewing the game since launch. On Apple’s app store, the game so far has a 4.8 rating out of 5. Below is a trailer for Shiba Eternity.
Shiba Eternity allows players to pick up several types of cards each turn and compete to draw down the stamina of their opponents’ virtual canine warriors, Shiboshis. The game was initially released in Australia back in September, after being tested in Vietnam in August.
When first starting the game payers are guided by a sensei named Ryoshi, in reference to the project’s founder Ryoshi. Players are guided on an initial quest that allows them to become familiar with the game’s mechanics.

According to the team behind Shiba Inu, the game could very well be one of the most complex collectible card games ever launched, as it features 10,000 Shiboshi heroes, 500 collectible cards, 87 card traits, 21 special powers, 21 card keywords, 11 passive powers, and more.
According to the developers, 5% of the game’s profit will be used to burn Shiba Inu tokens, in an effort to further reduce the cryptocurrency’s circulating supply. The SHIBArmy has for long used token burns to reduce supply, in a bid to help SHIB’s price rise if demand grows.
As CryptoGlboe reported, late last month SHIB’s burn rate surged by 100% to reach 61 million SHIB in just 24 hours, at a time in which Ethereum ($ETH) whales joined the movement and helped burn tokens.
The meme-inspired cryptocurrency community has organized several methods to generate revenue and burn SHIB, including through an Amazon affiliates program and through music playlists the community listens to.
