The Shiba Inu team led by developer Shytoshi Kusama has reopened the Shibarium mainnet after days of reviewing, testing, and tweaking the chain. After Shiba Inu influencers took to X to announce that the Layer-2 blockchain is live again, Shibarium’s gas token Bone ShibaSwap (BONE) skyrocketed more than 15% within hours.
Shibarium Mainnet Is Live Again
CoinGape Media reported that Shibarium is almost ready to reopen to the public today. Shiba Inu official Lucie hinted that Shibarium is producing blocks and working fine and just needs to be made public.
A few moments later, Shibariumscan.io explorer started showing block productions and transactions. Shytoshi Kusama promised to scale Shibarium by 1500% to improve security, stability, and decentralization. Shibarium has a new monitoring system and additional fail-safe mechanism including rate limiting at the RPC level and auto server reset.
