- Shiba Inu’s Layer-2 testnet soars in transactions at five blocks per second.
- The uptrend occurred after unveiling SHIB: The Metaverse’s launch date.
- SHIB gained 2.2% in the last 24 hours, SHIB Burn rate soared by 489.48%.
Shiba Inu’s Layer-2 scaling solution Shibarium reached some important milestones on its ‘Puppynet.’ While the mainnet is set to launch later this year, the puppynet suddenly surged in transactions, as a colossal 481,151 transactions were made on April 10th, 2023. However, the biggest achievement in the three-week-old testnet is surpassing over three million wallet addresses, which confirmed the prevalence of Shibarium’s popularity.
Shiba Inu’s Bridge Crossover
The two-year-old memecoin Shiba Inu (SHIB) started as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. Shibarium, the Layer-2 scaling solution, is set to operate self-sufficiently, even though Shibarium will provide a bi-directional cross-chain bridge to easily transfer funds between Shibarium and Ethereum.
The bridge crossing won’t change the number of tokens on the network, as a 1:1 ratio is guaranteed. The dual consensus infrastructure of the Ethereum + Shibarium bridge can also significantly contribute towards burning Shiba Inu tokens. According to developers, SHIB on Shibarium’s mainnet will automatically burn on every transaction.
