Shiba Inu: This new update might end FUD surrounding Shibarium

Share this article

  • The chain ID of the Shibarium testnet was a source of significant FUD.
  • Daily transactions on the test network zoomed to 718 on 24 March.

The FUD which gripped the Shiba Inu [SHIB] ecosystem since the testnet launch of layer-2 blockchain Shibarium, could soon be a thing of the past.

According to the latest update provided by a SHIB influencer, the chain ID of the Shibarium testnet, also called ‘Puppynet’, has been changed. As per a screenshot posted in the same thread, the new chain ID was 719.

Basis of the FUD

The chain ID of the Shibarium testnet became a bone of contention as soon as it was launched. A Shiba Inu discord channel member pointed out that Shibarium’s chain ID shared the same ID as the Rinia testnet blockchain.

The member insinuated that Shibarium might have copied the genesis file from the Rinia testnet and changed their name to Shibarium without changing the chain ID.

While Shibarium developers termed this as a coincidence, the revelation caused much furor in the SHIB community and the price of SHIB fell by more than 8%.

However, after the announcement of a new chain ID, the FUD might subside. And there were strong positive signs coming from Puppyscan, the Puppynet explorer. The daily transactions on the network zoomed to 718 on 24 March, after staying lulled for the last few days.

Furthermore, the Shibarium team was also working on the faucet update. Faucets are used to obtain the test cryptocurrency needed to interact with the testnet blockchain. The Shibarium faucet will utilize a BONE token in order to allow users and developers to perform tests on the network.

Whales are back in business?

Meanwhile, SHIB exchanged hands at $0.00001055 at the time of writing, falling by 1.21% over the previous day, per CoinMarketCap.

With clarity on chain ID in place, big addresses were attracted to SHIB. As per Santiment, the supply held by large addresses as a percentage of the total supply increased over the last two days.

However, despite the increase in transaction numbers, data from Shibburn revealed that the burn rate declined by over 92% in the last 24 hours, with a little over 1.34 million tokens removed from circulation.
