The lead developer of Shiba Inu revealed that the development teams have increased Shibarium scaling and capacity by a whopping 1,500%.
Shiba Inu’s lead developer Shytoshi Kusama has provided an update regarding the ongoing scaling of Shibarium, the cryptocurrency’s layer-2 blockchain.
In a blog post today, Kusama said the team restarted Shibarium today, adding that everything went smoothly. However, he said the procedure was for internal testing purposes- one of the phases required to relaunch the L2 blockchain.
“Now, with that stage complete, we are scaling up in multiple ways, testing again, and making it public,” he added.
Shibarium Scaling and Capacity Increased By 1,500%
In an interesting development, Kusama said the teams had increased Shibarium scaling and capacity by 1,500%.
According to Kusama, the Alchemy team has scaled Shibarium operations by 1,500%. It bears mentioning that Alchemy is the company where the Shiba Inu team secured 400 million compute units for Shibarium.
Additionally, Kusama noted that Shibarium devs have worked with the decentralized team and validators to scale the blockchain’s server infrastructure by 1,500%.
Shiba Inu Working With Other Devs to Manage Shibarium Traffic
It is worth noting that Shibarium encountered a technical issue due to an influx of users. A few hours after the L2 blockchain launched, Shibarium experienced massive traffic, with 160M compute units recorded in just 30 minutes.
As reported, Kusama revealed that the development team did not expect that amount of traffic at the time of Shibarium’s launch.
In the latest blog post, Kusama said the team now has a benchmark for the amount of traffic it should expect. Consequently, the Shibarium team has collaborated with other blockchain developers to create additional protocols to support and help manage the traffic.
Kusama Thanks Shiba Inu Community for Fighting FUDs
Meanwhile, the lead developer expressed gratitude to Shiba Inu community members for defending Shibarium amid escalating FUDs.
“A huge thanks to the ShibArmy, who fight fud while we work on preparing a chain large enough to handle your enthusiasm,” he said.
Recall that several critics leveraged the Shibarium issue to spread FUD about the project. The most notable incident was a fraudulent screenshot of Kusama admitting guilt and stating that investors would never recover their funds trapped in the bridge.
Reacting, Shiba Inu’s marketing specialist Lucie dismissed the FUD. She noted that the fake screenshot was a malicious attempt to harm the Shiba Inu ecosystem.
Additionally, Shiba Inu developer Kaal Dhairya said he would talk with the X team to identify the culprit who posted the fake screenshot of Kusama’s alleged admission of guilt.
