Aside from TTF’s execs, the organizers of the SXSW 2023 event also selected Marcie Jastrow, one of Shiba Inu’s metaverse advisors, to join the panelists.
The development comes a few hours after Shiba Inu invited the community to suggest a tagline for its metaverse project.
SHIB: The Metaverse to Exhibit at the 2023 SXSW Festival
The 2023 SXSW festival is scheduled to be held in Austin, Texas, between March 10 and 19, 2023. Members of the Shiba Inu community seem excited about the festival, which is set to feature an exclusive preview of WAGMI Temple, one of the 11 hubs of SHIB: The Metaverse.
As reported by TheCryptoBasic, the preview is expected to last for 40 minutes, a move that will allow attendees to learn more about the WAGMI Temple hub. The team behind the Canine-themed project also invited attendees to visit its booth at the festival in order to enhance their experience.
Notably, Shiba Inu will instruct interested investors on purchasing digital real estate within the Metaverse and explore the WAGMI Temple hub.
The WAGMI Temple Hub
The WAGMI Temple is one of the 11 hubs within SHIB: The Metaverse. In a blog post, Shiba Inu described WAGMI Temple as “a Zen-like realm with calming sensations, meditation, natural beauty, and spiritual connections to the world.”
The hub will give visitors the opportunity to explore a virtual representation of Shiba Inu’s collective history. So far, the team has shared several concepts of the WAGMI temple, including official images of the hub rendered using Unreal Engine 5.1.
Meanwhile, SHIB: The Metaverse is one of the most anticipated projects within the Shiba Inu community. The team has consistently shown its commitment to the project by sharing concepts and images of different hubs within the Metaverse. In November, Shiba Inu shared the second concept art for Tech Trench, another hub of the Metaverse.
