Shiba Inu is increasing Shibarium’s scalability
As per the latest blog, Shiba Inu restarted the blockchain in order to scale up in multiple ways, testing it again and making it public. The Shibarium team has worked with the decentralized team and validators to scale the server infrastructure by 1500% as well as the top-notch metal infrastructure.
On top of that, the team has also worked with several blockchain experts to create additional protocols to support and manage traffic.
Another recent blog revealed that the team was focused on ensuring perfect security measures were in place and began deep testing on the blockchain. Shibarium is currently live producing blocks as normal, but in private mode.
SHIB remains red
While Shibarium developers buckled up to ensure scalability, SHIB investors continued to bear losses. After the recent market drop, several cryptos have finally managed to paint their daily charts green. However, this was not the case with SHIB, as its price declined by more than 1% in the last 24 hours.
According to CoinMarketCap, at the time of writing, SHIB was trading at $0.00000839 with a market capitalization of over $4.9 billion, making it the 14th largest crypto. The price decline stirred negative sentiment around the token.
This was evident from LunarCarush’s data, which revealed that Shiba Inu’s bullish sentiment dropped by 40% in the last 24 hours. Moreover, the memecoin’s Altrank also increased by 523, which is a typical bearish signal.
