What Are the Use-Cases of Shiba Inu?

Digital Currency

ShibaSwap is an Ethereum-based platform that allows users to trade ERC-20 tokens.  Users can also stake their cryptocurrency in the exchange's liquidity pools, allowing it to be used by the exchange. Users receive crypto rewards on their staked tokens in exchange for their participation.


The Artist Incubator is a unique feature of the Shiba Inu project.  The network encourages users to create their own NFTs in order to increase the project's meme atmosphere and buzz. Artists from all over the world are encouraged to submit their work to the NFT market.

The Shiboshis on OpenSea

What is Shiberse?

Shibarium is considered to be a powerful tier 2 blockchain and a transitional evolution for the Shiba ecosystem. It runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain, using tokens from the SHIB ecosystem ($SHIB, $LEASH, and $BONE). With the evolution of Web3, blockchain technology is starting to become mainstream. Some of the biggest obstacles to mainstream adoption are the cost and speed of transactions.

Shibarium's layer 2 blockchain protocols can serve different industry areas such as metaverse, Web3 innovation, and gaming. This is mainly due to the common scalability and performance limitations of current existing blockchain networks. This layer aims to work on top of existing blockchain networks, allowing faster, cheaper and more private transactions processed off-chain, still relying on the security of the underlying blockchain.

This can help reduce the load on the blockchain network and improve the user experience for metaverse and gaming applications. Together, web3 and Shibarium's Layer 2 blockchain technology can enable a new decentralized metaverse and gaming ecosystem where players can interact and transact in a trusted, decentralized way and where players can own, buy, and sell the digital assets they acquire.
