Despite the backlash it receives from cryptocurrency analysts, the Shiba Inu meme coin continues to make a loud noise, and on March 30, it revealed additional details regarding its own metaverse, which will be appropriately named SHIB.
The project currently has more than 3 million followers on Twitter, which the development team attributes to a new degree of achievement.
The team says that by launching its own metaverse venture, it will help position Shiba Inu for advancement.

SHIB: The Metaverse is a virtual world with about 100,595 plots of virtual land and four unique districts.

“We would like to extend a warm welcome to SHIB: The Metaverse. An immersive experience that has the potential to expand into a large setting in which the Shib Army may learn, share, and benefit.”
In a blog post captioned in the announcement, the Shiba Inu team describes SHIB: The Metaverse as the fulfilment of the community’s history, visually portrayed in a layer of stunning graphics that highlight its inventiveness and cohesion while providing a place to call home.
