Shiba Inu recent developments
Shiba Inu has recently made its way into American political discourse. In a tweet, Senator Wendy Rogers of Arizona says that while she does not understand SHIB, she does understand freedom, stating that people should be able to buy whatever cryptocurrency they want.
PlaySide Studios, Australia's largest independent video game developer, announced on Twitter that its relationship with Shiba Inu creators would extend beyond the release of a play-to-earn game. Not hiding its excitement, the gaming company claims that it is developing "something truly great."
We are building something truly great together and we can't WAIT to show you what’s coming! #SHIBARMY— PlaySide Studios (@PlaysideStudios) January 31, 2022
Shiba Inu Games teamed up with PlaySide to develop a mobile game featuring non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from the "Shiboshi" collection in early December last year.
