My Shiba Academia Heroes Review – Gameplay, Features, NFTs

My Shiba Academia Heroes is a collection of 25,000 playable NFTs in an upcoming MMO game on Ethereum. The collection drops in November 2021.

The market for NFT-based games is rapidly emerging. Every day, new projects kick off and bring together two of the largest new-gen demographics, gamers, and NFT collectors. Above all, they provide a fun and easy initiation to the blockchain through engaging DeFi applications and flashy games.

Today, we look closer at one of the latest projects to surface on this stage. In this My Shiba Academia review, we look at the game’s features and NFT collection. Also, we find out how it uses blockchain to build its own ecosystem.

What is My Shiba Academia Heroes?

My Shiba Academia (MSA) is a social cross-chain Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) game that comes with a collection of 25,000 NFTs. These non-fungible tokens are unique “heroes” that users can redeem for their in-game performance. Furthermore, they can cosmeticize them and use them to engage with other players.

This GameFi project uses paid progression-based NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. For instance, these heroes are available in 4 tiers of different levels of uniqueness. Furthermore, they are randomized to give all players equal opportunities. However, players can mint their heroes to reach higher tiers. This means that users can add to their collection by improving their non-fungible heroes with items. Therefore, they have a good chance at increasing their uniqueness and, subsequently, their value.

My Shiba Academia should help make NFT collecting more enjoyable by introducing a gaming element to it. Its mission is to build a token-driven community and lead the GameFi movement to a new level.

Besides the MMO, the project promises a proprietary ecosystem expansion that will include several DeFi features. They are a hyper deflationary utility token, a decentralized exchange, governance tokens, DApps, and an in-game NFT minting service.

The presale for its native token, $MSA, will occur at the end of October on Pinksale. The event will also systematize its launch on Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Also, by the year’s end, MSA will make its NFT collection available on the popular NFT marketplace OpenSea.

MSA Tokenomics

Fueling My Shiba Academia’s development and features is the $MSA Token. This digital coin will act as a bridge between the Ethereum and BSC blockchains. This way, both ERC-20 and BEP-20 token holders can purchase NFTs in MSA and play the game.

$MSA is a hyper deflationary token that the project maintains by buying it back from exchanges and burning it. This way, it reduces its supply and, in the long term, it increases its value. Alternatively, users will receive tokens through airdrops and after each in-game purchase they make.

The project developers chose DxSale as the launchpad for the token’s launch on October 25, 2021. It set a maximum supply of 5 billion $MSA tokens. Also, these tokens are subject to a decentralized usage rewards mechanism that will revalue transactions with 15% slippage. Here’s how it will work:

  • 7% of the total value will go to the project’s liquidity pools to boost floor support for every transaction.
  • An additional 3% will go to the marketing wallet, which will help the team further develop the project.
  • Another 2% will automatically go to a smart contract for buying back $MSA tokens.
  • Lastly, 3% will go to the holders’ decentralized wallets only for every active user transaction.

Through this mechanism, My Shiba Academia encourages users to play more and upgrade their NFTs more. Simply put, the more they play, the more rewards they gain.

Further distribution of the $MSA tokens include:

  • 60% to Uniswap/PancakeSwap
  • 10% to Team Tokens (5% to owner wallet, which will be locked for 6 months, 2% to Community and Events Leader, 2.5% to Media Relations Coordinator, and 0.5% to Moderation Team)
  • 10% to Exchanges and Partnerships

Additionally, the project will burn 20% of the initial supply. At the time of writing, the $MSA smart contract has successfully passed a top-grade security audit from Solidproof. The German company will also provide MSA with KYC standards.

My Shiba Academia Ecosystem Features

The team behind My Shiba Academia Heroes has ambitious plans for the project’s future. In this regard, it has devised an extensive roadmap with a versatile suite of features. Among them are:

Shiba Heroes NFTs

My Shiba Academia’s soon available heroes will have different rarity tiers and, therefore, values. The developers have envisioned 4 different levels:

  • Student Heroes – 10,000 NFTs
  • Trainee Heroes – 7,500 NFTs
  • Heroes – 5,000 NFTs
  • Pro-Heroes – 2,500 NFTs

Upon minting, all heroes will pass through a randomization process. Naturally, the fewer NFTs are in a tier, the more expensive they are. Nevertheless, all heroes will be unique and easy to customize through items, which are other NFTs in the game.

In terms of appearance, the MSA heroes resemble a combination of Japanese anime art, animals, and mythology. Among them are Shiba Inu, Akita Inu, Kishu Inu, Hokkaidu Inu, Jando Inu, and more.

Hero Swap/DeX

The HERO SWAP feature is a decentralized exchange (DEX), where users can swap any ERC20 or BEP20 token. Additionally, it will serve as a bridge for easy conversion of BSC $MSA tokens into ETH and vice-versa.

MSA will use Uniswap and PancakeSwap to create customized platforms. This way, users will be able to store their tokens there.

Additionally, My Shiba Academia plans to launch a decentralized application (DApp). This feature will enable users to stake MSA tokens against BNB, BUSD, ETH, USDC, and USDT.

Lastly, the project will deploy APYs that will compete with high-performance yield projects. As a result, token holders will have plenty of staking options at their disposal.

Hero Watch

Another innovative feature from My Shiba Academia is the Hero Watch. This wallet tracker will enable users to track several metrics, including:

  • Their $MSA rewards
  • Their wallet balance
  • The amount of burned tokens
  • Upcoming contests and their winners
  • The interest they will be receiving from their $MSA stakes

Additionally, they will be able to calculate how much they will earn within a specific period. This way, they can adjust their staking terms for better profits.

A Hero’s Cape

This feature will act as a merchandise e-commerce store. Here, users can purchase various clothing items and accessories with the game’s trademark components. Additionally, MSA will partner with multiple reputable urban brands to produce the highest quality apparel to the community. 

The project will use this feature to reinvest in the MSA platform. For instance, 25% of the sales will go towards further project development. An additional 5% will go towards community contests, and 10% will go towards marketing. Lastly, 10% will go to a charity of the community’s choice.

My Shiba Academia Heroes MMO

According to the My Shiba Academia Heroes whitepaper, MSA will be the first project to have a progression and regression system. This means that users can re-roll their NFT heroes, which can move up or down the tiers, increasing or decreasing their values, respectively.

The four tiers we mentioned above will reward heroes with different characteristics, including Attack, Defense, and Quirk. Also, they will have access to a broad range of in-game NFT items.

MSA has developed the visual representation of the game through a partnership with Stainless Games. The result should be an engaging animated universe where heroes will defend a city against AI villains. 

Lastly, users can earn passive income by staking their heroes on the platform’s SWAP feature. This way, they can borrow NFTs but still play the game. This will be possible through a character clone that they receive for the duration of their stakings.

In the second version of the game, users will also have access to a PVP gaming feature. This future release does not have a date yet.

Final Thoughts

My Shiba Academia Heroes is one of the latest projects to surface on the GameFi/NFT stage. It proposes a fun and engaging heroverse with high scalability potential. Thanks to its progression and regression system, the game incentivizes players to remain active and increase their NFTs’ values.

price change

The project is still in its early days but has an ambitious roadmap. We will follow its imminent presale event and upcoming NFT release. From there on, only time will tell how far this GameFi ecosystem will expand.
