Shiba Inu hints at making Shibarium public soon

Progress is underway in the field of blockchain technology, with the highly anticipated public launch of the Shibarium (L2) version happening soon. The Shiba Inu team has announced that the platform is running smoothly and just needs to be made public. 

The team behind Shibarium, an Ethereum layer-2 network, has indicated that the platform is currently live and in private mode having functioned smoothly during its two-day test, and is on the verge of becoming available to the public.

The Shibarium team claimed in recent blog post that funds remain safe, and users can look forward to a fresh experience when the platform becomes accessible to all. Those who have benefited from the update are already celebrating as bridged $BONE tokens make their entry.

The Shibarium community known as Shibarmy, are commenting on X (formerly known as Twitter) in response to the development. The Shibarium team expressed their satisfaction with the progress, stating that the network has achieved a “ready” state after thorough testing and parameter adjustments. Although testing is ongoing, the team revealed that blocks are consistently being generated without issues.

The recent updates include added safety measures and a monitoring system. These enhancements involve implementing rate limiting at the remote procedure call (RPC) level and an automatic server reset mechanism. These improvements are intended to avert potential problems stemming from abrupt traffic surges, guaranteeing users a steady and dependable experience.

During its testing phase, the network garnered significant attention with millions of wallets engaged in over 22 million transactions spanning four months. However, the initial launch encountered challenges. An overwhelming surge of activity overloaded the network, leading to a temporary halt in transactions for several hours. Consequently, millions of dollars were trapped on a bridge tool, causing a 10% decrease in SHIB pricing.

Subsequently, developers have addressed the issues and clarified that the servers were overwhelmed due to an unforeseen surge in transaction volume. The network’s team says it is now assured of the reopening’s success despite the initial challenges.
