SHIB and AAA produce ”Oshiverse”
Play-to-win non-fungible token (NFT) game developer Shiba Inu (SHIB) has partnered with former Activision Vice President of Technology William David Volk.
The SHIB ecosystem will be bolstered by a new game called Oshiverse. An article titled “The Future of Gaming: Shib” was published by Shytoshi Kusama on Medium on November 26, which revealed more information on the decentralized meme currency initiative.
Shiba Inu and a AAA gaming firm have forged cooperation to produce an NFT game, which will most likely feature the Shiboshi NFTs, according to Shytoshi. Due to a confidentiality agreement, he was unable to reveal the identity of the studio.
Who is David Volk?
Until recently, Activision was the most valuable gaming firm in the world; Volk was Vice President of Technology at Activision in 1991.
Shytoshi commented on Volk, stating, “
“He’s a true visionary with decades of top-notch, high-quality experience on the corporate side, and also on the independent side, having run his own game studio as well.”
Likewise, the SHIB Twitter account tweeted out: “We are proud to welcome @william_volk to Shiba Inu Games!”
Meanwhile, Volk said the following about his role:
“I am honored to be working with an amazing team on what will become one of the most significant games of all time.”
Shiba NFT Game
In addition, Shytoshi provided additional information on the Shiba Inu game’s scope, which will mostly be played on mobile platforms such as iOS and Android. The game, on the other hand, will feature Shibarium functionality as well as decentralized features.
According to Shytoshi, the following will occur as a result of this:
“Provide unique opportunities within the Shiba Inu Ecosystem ($SHIB, $LEASH & $BONE), while Shiba Inu Games remains completely separate from this activity.”
The SHIB brand would be “forced into the corporate world and the rules,” Shytoshi said, but “this is a positive thing because it allows us to take some of our valued assets and make them defensive,” he said.
When it came to the release date, there was none. But Shytoshi first referenced the Oshiverse on October 14th, when he described having talked with a potential gaming business to release a SHIB-based game.
Since its inception, the SHIB ecosystem has grown significantly
Since its early meme coin branding days, SHIB has been on a long journey, and the digital asset is seeking to break away from that label by attempting to establish an extensive crypto-ecosystem with legitimate applications and efforts.
This week, the number of Shiba Inu token holders surpassed 1 million, despite criticism from hedge fund manager Michael Burry, who argued that the token was a “pointless” and “poor” investment option.
SHIB will be accepted as a payment method by Newegg starting on November 29th, according to that company.
As of this writing, the SHIB token is trading at $0.000039357, up 4.62 percent in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap data.
