The game was developed by the SHIB team headed by Shytoshi Kusama. It will not have a burn feature, but “there is a reason for that”, the lead dev stated in a tweet on December 30 last year.
The game will be partly focused on SHIB NFTs, although it is a collectable card game, and its narrative will span through the whole ecosystem of SHIB.
The game was successfully tested in Vietnam this August.
Some SHIB users in the comment thread, however, suggested that this game will hardly be useful unless it cannot burn SHIB tokens and assumed that it could be an attempt to make money using the brand of SHIB.
Just curious, what does this do for the #shibarmy if not burning? Or just the SHIB name to make money? Not creating FUD just wanna know how tf this helps us 🤣😂🤣😂🤣 $SHIB
