Shiba Inu’s Shibarium Ethereum Layer-2 Mainnet Now Live

    After extensive beta testing that engaged millions of users and generated 21 million wallets, Shiba Inu successfully launched its Shibarium mainnet on August 16. This Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution employs a novel consensus mechanism known as proof-of-participation (PoP), selecting validators based on their cryptocurrency holdings proportion. PoP aims to sidestep the computational demands of traditional proof-of-work approaches. By bridging with the primary Ethereum layer-1 blockchain, Shibarium enhances scalability and cost-efficiency for transactions.

    Shiba Inu (SHIB), which surged in popularity during the 2020–2021 bull market, recently unveiled Shibarium amidst substantial community anticipation. Despite a subsequent valuation drop of over 80% in the bear market, the Shiba Inu community persisted, establishing a decentralized ecosystem around SHIB. This ecosystem encompasses a decentralized exchange called ShibaSwap, a native token named BONE, a metaverse, and a Web3 game. Notably, SHIB’s price experienced a renewed ascent before Shibarium’s launch.

    Shiba Inu’s lead developer, known as Shytoshi Kusama, affirmed Shibarium’s growing influence within the industry even before the mainnet release. Kusama revealed on X (previously known as Twitter) a snapshot of ongoing projects leveraging Shibarium, suggesting over 100 companies are already utilizing the platform. With its pioneering approach and strong community support, Shiba Inu’s Shibarium emerges as a noteworthy addition to the Ethereum landscape, fostering greater scalability and innovation.
