The new website has launched to allow prospective Shiba metaverse owners to lock LEASH and Shiboshis in preparation for the upcoming Shiba Lands sale.

First announced in the latest SHIB: The Metaverse update post, the new Shiba website will host several future SHIB products. It will also facilitate the land sale.

Here’s a look at the fresh Shiba website and its Locker feature.

SHIB.IO goes live

After being teased during the Binance AMA with the Shiba team, SHIB Growth member Milkshake confirmed the launch of SHIB.IO.

Previously, the site displayed only an image of a Shiba Inu dog holding a spanner in its mouth. It will now display the LEASH and Shiboshi Locker features. These Lockers are vital for those wanting to be among the first to buy virtual real estate in the Shiba Metaverse.

With up to 200 Land available to bid/purchase per address, those wanting the top end must lock away the top amounts of LEASH, and for the longest time. In this case, 5 LEASH for 90 days. Users can also lock up to 10 Shiboshi NFTs.

The LEASH and Shiboshi exclusivity is the first stage in the Shiba Metaverse’s land sale. It will later open up to the public following an auction and a second purchase stage.

In the Binance AMA, Shiba team member Archangel also told prospective landowners to use a MetaMask wallet. He said:

If you haven’t got a MetaMask wallet set up, you definitely need to get that set up today if you’re interested in Land purchases. These will only be able to utilise MetaMask as the wallet, so no Trust Wallet or Coinbase Wallet. Only MetaMask for the land NFT.

We still don’t have any release dates for SHIB: The Metaverse or the land sale, but preparation is ramping up. The interactive map for the Metaverse is set to launch on the website soon. Meanwhile, SHIB said it will soon reveal the AAA studio that it onboarded to help with the art for the metaverse project.
