In the Shiba Inu metaverse, landowners may earn passive income, according to a developer involved in the SHIB ecosystem.
Penny, aka Eric M, said that Shiba Land buyers would receive passive benefits. Penny commented in the Shiba Inu Discord.
It is still unclear when the Shiba Inu Lands – real estate – will go on sale. Additional information about the sale dates is expected in the coming months.
While the developer only mentions passive income, we would suggest that it is a reference to passive income derived from virtual land in a metaverse. Metaverse projects already offer passive income. This allows landowners to rent out their virtual properties, as well as launch businesses and events on their land.
Alternately, the passive benefits could be used for exclusive access to Shiba ecosystems in the future.
SHIB holders discovered the metaverse would host businesses and social clubs during an AMA in February.
Passive income is not the first form of revenue generated by projects in the Shiba ecosystem. Shiba project lead Shytoshi Kusama hinted in December that Shiba holders can earn a passive income from the Shiba blockchain, and the Doggy DAO determined NFT holders would receive a BONE allocation per block. As a result, Shiboshi NFT collection prices increased slightly.
