As stated on the shib.io website, a total of 100,595 lands will be unlocked over time. During the first introductory phase, 36,431 lands will be revealed and just 32,124 will be available for purchase. Some lands will remain locked as they represent key locations for travel within the Metaverse and will be used as common ground.
In response to the community’s request, the Shiba Inu team has announced that lands can now be bought with the Shiba Inu token in SHIB: The Metaverse, while sharing the details of minting with SHIB in a recent tweet.
Also, Shiba Inu has gained more than 4,000 holders in just a few days. According to WhaleStats, the total number of SHIB holders is currently 1,143,500. Barely six days back, the count stood at 1,140,000. The recent increase remains a positive sign. Although an increase in holders may not have an immediate impact on the price, it may signify interest in an asset over time.
Shiba Inu acceptance is growing
As previously reported, Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies are now accepted as payments by luxury yacht charter and brokerage firm Camper & Nicholsons via BitPay. The 240-year-old company now accepts cryptocurrency payments, including SHIB, for its entire fleet of yachts, for purchase, charter and all other services.
According to data from CoinMarketCap, SHIB currently ranks 15th by market capitalization. Shiba Inu was also trading at $0.0000207 after falling to $0.0000184 in late April.
