The latest developments in the Shiba Inu Metaverse project signal a bright future for its supporters.
Shiba Inu is a decentralized cryptocurrency project inspired by the popular internet meme of the Shiba Inu dog breed. It was created as an alternative to Dogecoin on the Ethereum blockchain.
The Shiba Inu ecosystem comprises three unique tokens, each serving a different purpose. $SHIB, the primary token, functions as a decentralized, community-driven currency accessible to millions worldwide. Launched in late 2020 on the Ethereum blockchain, $SHIB has gained global recognition and can be used as payment at numerous locations, either directly or through third-party intermediaries.
The Shiba Inu team has recently provided an update on the progress of “SHIB – The Metaverse,” highlighting the project’s accomplishments, structural changes, new designs, and roadmap modifications. The team expressed their confidence in these changes and their positive impact on users.
In a blog post published on April 10, the Shiba Inu team outlined their goals for the project’s development, stating that by the end of 2023, users will have access to several areas of the Metaverse. This will allow them to explore, build, design, play, and develop within the digital world. However, the Metaverse will not be fully completed by then, as it is an ongoing project that will continue to evolve and develop over time.
To keep users informed about the project’s progress, the Shiba Inu team has created a new official Twitter account, @mvshib. Followers can stay up-to-date on the latest news and announcements and participate in a contest to win free land in the Metaverse.
The team has significantly improved the development infrastructure of SHIB – The Metaverse, focusing on providing users with a more photorealistic experience. This shift in direction led the team to adapt their existing development work and start building new Hubs based on this new vision. They believe the results are impressive and will exceed user expectations.
One of the major changes in the development process was the adoption of Unreal Engine 5.1. This allowed the team to restructure their crew and adopt a modern, hands-on approach to developing the massive open world. The engine also helped streamline the workflow process, reducing the time spent on troubleshooting, which was previously a significant part of game design.
For the first version of SHIB – The Metaverse, the team is working diligently to develop a series of tools to enhance the user experience. Key tools include the Plot Builder, a user-friendly interface that enables users to create and customize their plots, and the Avatar Builder, which allows users to create unique digital identities with various personalization options. Details about a third tool, the Game Maker, will be revealed in a subsequent blog post.
The team also shared a sneak peek of the next Hub to be revealed, Rocket Pond. This area promises to take users to new heights and offers a glimpse of the Metaverse’s expansive world.
Finally, the blog post detailed the Shiba Inu team’s experience at the SXSW festival. The team aimed to gather feedback on their Wagmi pre-alpha immersive piece and build awareness of the SHIB – The Metaverse concept. By showcasing their project at the festival, the team aimed to join an established community and bring attention to the metaverse concept beyond the crypto space. The team’s booth was popular, and festival organizers praised their marketing approach. This success at SXSW demonstrates the growing interest in the SHIB – The Metaverse project and its potential for the future of digital worlds.
