Shiba Shootout (SHIBASHOOT) has launched its ICO with a buzz, nearing $500,000 in funds raised and drawing comparisons to Shiba Inu (CRYPTO:SHIB).

The meme coin stands out with its Wild West theme featuring Shiba Inus in cowboy hats and promises a Play-to-Earn game akin to Red Dead Redemption.

Investors are intrigued by features like "Cactus Staking" offering high annual yields and "Posse Rewards" for community engagement.

The ICO price starts at $0.0194 per token, with plans for CoinGecko/CoinMarketCap listings and community-driven governance.

While success in the volatile meme coin market is uncertain, Shiba Shootout’s unique approach and initial traction suggest it's one to watch.
