FLOKI launches its metaverse website and game
As reported by U.Today earlier, the Floki Inu developer team launched a metaverse game dubbed Valhalla. It is a turn-based battle game powered by FLOKI token with the goal of increasing its adoption and utility.
FLOKI will be used either as an in-game currency or as a medium of exchange to buy the in-game currency. Users will be able to buy in-game objects, NFTs, or pay in it in order to pass the game at an easier level. Developers expect to see large inflows of FLOKI into the game, which will be locked there and therefore "burned," i.e., taken out of the circulating supply.
The aforementioned NFTs in Valhalla are in-game characters called Vera.
Recently, the FLOKI team also released the project's official website.
