Bidding for lands in SHIB the Metaverse opened last month and only Leash holders were given priority access for bidding. Users who locked their Leash tokens got first access in the ‘land event’ and 35,000 plots were up for grabs. On the very first day, close to $6 million in Ethereum was minted in SHIB the Metaverse by Leash holders. At the end of the ‘land event’, a total of 6,280 ETH worth $20 million was spent to mint lands in the Metaverse.

One particular user spent the highest with 36.3 ETH worth $110,712 in the Metaverse. The purchase was not made for a single plot but the user made good use of the multi-bid format and purchased 121 different plots of land. On average, the user spent approximately 0.3 ETH for different individual plots.

However, investors complained that the team is giving more importance to Leash and Ethereum but not the Shiba Inu token. Investors demanded the team to add Shiba Inu as an option to mint lands, so it can have a use-case in the Metaverse ecosystem.
