Shiba Inu Coin Gains Following Update On Shibarium Project

Shiba Inu Coin Gains Following Update On Shibarium Project. 

After the Shiba Inu Coin developers recently announced that their long-awaited Layer 2 blockchain protocol, Shibarium, is coming very soon, excitement and bullishness for the popular memecoin has returned once again.

About Shibarium

The developers explain in a new blog post that the Shibarium project itself is a Layer 2 blockchain protocol that aims to bring users faster transaction speeds, lower fees, and increased scalability. This will happen due to the fact that it will run on top of the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, helping to reduce bottlenecks with scaling and data.

“In layer-2 blockchains like Shibarium, transactions occur ‘off-chain,’ meaning transactions occur outside of the layer-1 (Ethereum) blockchain, and are communicated back. Allowing the layer-2 blockchain to do the majority of the processing work alleviates bandwidth, which results in lower costs (gas fees) and processing time for the end users.” The official Shiba Inu blog explains.
