Shibarium resumes block production after temporary pause due to high demand

by Aug 20, 2023CryptoNews0 comments

Shibarium, the layer-2 blockchain of Shiba Inu, is back online after a short interruption. The network had to stop processing transactions for almost a day due to a surge in demand after its launch. According to the website, the network is now producing blocks again. Shiba Inu’s lead developer, Shytoshi Kusama, confirmed that the network was paused to protect users’ funds from any issues caused by the high traffic. He assured that the funds were safe and that the bridge and the chain were working well. He also said that Shibarium was ready to resume operations quickly.

He said the team would also provide regular updates on the status of the network, which is a fork of Polygon. He revealed that in one block, there were thousands of contract creations and normal transactions. To prevent any potential problems with fund recovery, the Shiba Inu project decided to get insurance coverage worth $2 million for Shibarium. After this announcement, the network restarted its block production and the team kept monitoring it closely. However, some members of the Shiba Inu community expressed concern about the spread of fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) that could harm the project. They showed their support and confidence in the network’s efforts to fix the transaction pause.

Despite this, the prices recovered after Shibarium was reactivated, even though the overall crypto market was in a downtrend. In the last 24 hours, SHIB’s price dropped by 11%, currently at $0.0000082. It ranged between a low of $0.0000076 and a high of $0.0000093 in the same period. Meanwhile, BONE’s price fell by 15%, reaching $1.18, while LEASH was at $430, marking a 5% decline in the same timeframe.
