Shiba Inu updates

Alongside the latest Shiba Inu news, there are countless projects on the go within the Shiba Inu ecosystem. Here’s the latest on a handful of these.

Shiba Eternity

Developed by PlaySide Studios in collaboration with Shiba Inu, the Shiba Inu Eternity game has been launched on Android and iOS.

Dubbed a unique card collectable game, the Shiba Inu Eternity is only available for Apple users for now. The team is also working on releasing an Android version of the game in the near future.

The official SHIB Discord now has a channel dedicated to Shiba Eternity, with future announcements expected to come pretty soon as development nears the end.


This Layer-2 solution is the SHIB community’s most anticipated project. With a launch due in early 2023 SHIB holders are planning and preparing to build their own projects on top of Shibarium, including NFT marketplaces.

The Shibarium Hackathon could even help fund such projects.

Shiba Inu Metaverse

The Shiba Inu team has revealed new Growth Dunes and Tech Trench concept art ahead of its metaverse launch.

Per a recent update shared by Shytoshi Kusama, the Shiba Inu team may soon assist the WEF in shaping global metaverse policy.

After the SHIB Metaverse Land Sale first launched, it appears the metaverse has shifted into its next phase of development. Shiba Inu has announced several new hires set to work on its metaverse. These include prominent tech and entertainment veterans coming onboard as developers or advisors.

The most recent of these saw SHIB bring onboard The Third Floor - a visualisation studio that has worked on Marvel and Star Wars films in the past.

The platform recently unveiled "dunes," a new concept art depicting desert imagery and sand mounds inspired by Egypt and Colorado.

New Shiba Inu tokens

The Shiba Inu ecosystem currently comprises SHIB, BONE and LEASH, alongside Shiboshis and metaverse land. However, Shiba Inu is set to expand with two new tokens.

The SHI stablecoin is among these new tokens. Originally intended to be an algo-stablecoin (although the Luna crypto crash may have impacted this design), it could be tied to 1 cent, using LEASH as a peg.

We don’t know much else about SHI, although it is still set to launch in 2022.

Outside of SHI, another token known as TREAT will also release to replace BONE as a ShibaSwap reward. Since it was only just announced, we know even less about TREAT.

Shiba Inu price

The current Shiba Inu (SHIB) price is $0.00001345 with a market cap of $7.9 billion. The token is up13% over the last 30 days. The token is -84% below its all-time high of $0.00008616, reached on October 28, 2021.

Shiba Inu burns

At the time of publication, a total of 410,384,701,999,999 Shiba Inu has been burned. While most of this came from Vitalik Buterin’s massive burn, the SHIB community destroyed 70 billion tokens in the first six months of 2022.

Of this SHIB burned, the Shiba Inu burn portal has destroyed over 60 billion SHIB since it first launched in April.

This next phase for SHIB burning should see community and official burns go hand-in-hand, as projects such as Shibarium and the metaverse promise some sort of burning mechanics. Meanwhile, community games, NFTs, products and more will all continue their burns.

In July 2022, 4,762,745,494 SHIB was sent to the dead wallets, around 200 million SHIB more than in June 2022.

So far in February 2023, a total of 410,385,107,202,216 SHIB has been burned.
