The Shiba Inu [SHIB] ecosystem has been eagerly awaiting the launch of several things. The collectible card game called Shib Eternity is one of them. Earlier this month, during the second birthday of the network, the lead developer Shytoshi Kusama announced the name of the card. With its release, the community was assured that the actual game release wasn’t too far off. Today, the network affirmed that the game was live for testing. However, this was limited to the residents of Vietnam.
Vietnam has been emerging as a Shiba Inu hotspot. An array of platforms across the region were embracing the meme coin. Therefore, in July, Shytoshi revealed that there was a “special treat” for Vietnam. Keeping up his promise, the developer tweeted,
His tweet translates to “Vietnam! The game #ShibaEternity is now available for testing in your country on iOS. Looking for Shiba Eternity. This is an early test, more features will be released in later builds. Happy experimenting! #shibarmy #ccg“
Right after this, several went on to share a glimpse of what the Shiba Inu card game looked like.
As seen in the above video, a couple of more cards were unveiled. This included “SWIFTPAW SHOWOFF”, “HIRO”, “BONE NUNCHUCKS”, “PAWPRINT SAI” along with “WHISKY.”
This certainly created an uproar among the Shiba Inu community. While some suggested that July 2022 would be the release date of the game, that clearly wasn’t the case. Currently, the network is speculated to be eyeing September.
Here’s how the price of Shiba Inu is reacting to this release
The entire crypto market was painted green. Most of the assets were pocketing significant gains. Shiba Inu, however, was taking it slow. The altcoin was up by a mere 4.40 percent over the last 24 hours. Some of its counterparts were even seen bagging double-digit profits.
Nevertheless, at press time, Shib was trading for $0.00001252 while its market cap held on to $6.88 billion.
