Shiba Eternity is off to a great start in Vietnam.
Shiba Inu’s premier card collection game, Shiba Eternity, is starting in Vietnam. The head of the Shiba Inu gaming team and former Activision Vice President William Volk reveals that developers expanded server capacity 50 times to accommodate all the players.
“Wow, we had to increase the gameplay server capacity FIFTY-FOLD to deal with the players coming in from the Vietnam test launch!” Volk wrote in a tweet on Monday.

On Thursday, The Crypto Basic reported that Shiba Inu was rolling out its card collection game for beta testing for iOS users in Vietnam. Notably, lead Shiba Inu developer Shytoshi Kusama, with a shout-out to Indonesia in the announcement, has fueled speculation that the game will roll out in the Southeast Asian country next.
Judging by Volk’s statements, the reception is pretty impressive and indicative of the excitement around the game, as so far, only iOS users are participating in the test. Notably, Volk agrees that things will get even more exciting once the Beta Launch goes live for Android users.
Oh yeah. Android release will crush the servers. #ShibaEternity

The Shiba Eternity game has caused a lot of buzz in the Shiba Inu community, with lead developer Kusama gushing with excitement. The team has been working on the game for over nine months now in partnership with game developers PlaySide Studios.
Notably, the network’s native token, Shiba Inu (SHIB), posted impressive gains over the weekend. The asset price surged by over 30% as whale activity spiked to April highs. It will be unsurprising to see more volatile price action as the community expects to see the launch of several projects alongside the game in Q3 2022.
Shiba Inu is currently the 12th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, trading at the $0.0000162 price point, up 3.56% in the last 24 hours and 28.65% in the last seven days.
