Shibarium Rockets to Success with 65K Wallets and 350K Transactions
Shibarium, the Shiba Inu layer 2 network, achieved a strong start with over 65,000 wallets and 350,000 transactions, drawing attention for its wide variety of tokens across platforms.
Shibarium has received swift support from the Polygon team, solidifying its presence in the blockchain space.
Shiba Inu, the viral cryptocurrency, has embraced the identity of a decentralized network aspiring to offer swift, scalable, and economical transactions for diverse applications. Within the Shiba Inu ecosystem, Shibarium represents the latest breakthrough – a layer 2 solution employing optimistic rollups to amplify both Ethereum blockchain’s efficacy and security.
With an initial launch that saw over 65,000 wallet sign-ups and 350,000 transactions, Shibarium is emerging as a significant player in the blockchain ecosystem. The Shiba Inu layer 2 network hosts an array of tokens, and is now garnering attention across multiple deployment platforms.
As Shibarium gains traction, industry insiders anticipate the trajectory of successful tokens. Bolstered by secured funds and a triumphant launch, Shibarium is positioning itself for further expansion and future prospects.
The swift backing from the Polygon team proved instrumental in ensuring Shibarium’s progression, affirming the platform’s strategic alliance with the company.
“I need to give explanation and a huge thank you to thePolygon team. Quickly after the incident began, I called Sandeep from Polygon directly and without a second thought, he helped provide additional resources to ensure a perfect outcome to the situation. And that, is why our pivot to fork Polygon was the correct one,”Shiba Inu lead developer Shytoshi Kusama wrote in a blog post.
On August 17, Shibarium encountered issues leading to about $1.7 million worth of ETH locked within its cross-chain bridge on August 17. Concerns over its technical robustness and potential centralization emerged — as transactions within the ecosystem faced uncertainty.
After engaging auditors to assess vulnerabilities, the Ethereum Bridge collapsed, intensifying discussions about the platform’s challenges.
However, on August 22, Shytoshi Kusama announced improvements, including a monitoring system and safety mechanisms, aiming to enhance transactional experiences.
“Shibarium is LIVE and operating well!”Shytoshi Kusama shared today.
In the case of withdrawing Shib, Leash, or WEth tokens through the bridge, the process is designed to require at least 2 checkpoints, which generally takes around 45 minutes to 3 hours. If someone chooses to withdraw BONE tokens, it could take up to 7 days for the process. The timeframes have been confirmed to function as intended.
SHIB Is Becoming a Stronger Player in DeFi
Shiba Inu, formerly a meme token, has been transitioning to a credible position in DeFi. The transition involved integrating digital identity verification across its platforms, aligning with a layer 2 blockchain for the Shiba Inu ecosystem. Digital identity verification, now a standard for Shiba Inu projects, enhances trust and attracts potential investors to SHIB tokens.
The platform has embraced Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI), which empowers individuals to manage their data like tangible IDs. Shiba Inu focuses on deploying SSI, working with community projects and the Shibarium blockchain to address increasing data protection concerns.
