SHIB: The Metaverse bid event ends

As seen on the official SHIB: The Metaverse Twitter handle, the early access bid event, which marks the introductory phase of SHIB: The Metaverse land sale has reached its end.

Following the completion of the introductory phase of the early access land bid event, SHIB developers have announced that it has launched the second stage, which is the holder event.

The second and third stages, which are the holder event and public sale, are for those who could not get early access. The holder event is expected to last for seven days and begin immediately after the bid event ends.

The last stage of the public sale is slated to happen after the first two stages, and participants will be able to purchase the remaining available lands on the map, at a fixed price and without needing to lock any SHIB ecosystem assets.

As reported by U.Today, the official mobile app of AMC Theatres, the world's largest movie theater chain, now allows users to purchase tickets with the help of Shiba Inu, according to an announcement made by CEO Adam Aron. Users have to update their app to its latest version to pay with SHIB.
