Shibarium Now Operating in Private Mode, Here’s What’s New

Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer in the Shiba Inu ecosystem, has announced the transition of the Shiba Inu Layer 2 blockchain network, Shibarium, into private mode.

As the crypto community excitedly awaits the platform’s reopening to the public, Kusama shared a brief update that offers light on the rigorous preparations being implemented to ensure a seamless user experience.

Bolstering Shibarium Security

The primary focus highlighted by Kusama has been to meticulously review and implement robust security measures within Shibarium’s framework. This step underscores the project’s dedication to providing a secure environment where users can confidently engage without compromising their data or privacy.

Additionally, the lead developer mentions that the team commenced deep testing on the blockchain. This testing phase is critical for identifying any potential vulnerabilities or issues within the system. By subjecting the blockchain to rigorous testing procedures, the team ensures it functions flawlessly and can handle various scenarios before it’s reopened to the public.

Despite being in private mode, Shibarium remains active and operational. The update confirms that the blockchain is continuing to produce blocks as usual. This showcases the platform’s resilience and stability, even as it undergoes crucial security enhancements and testing.

Kusama noted that scaling and testing would continue on Monday before the chain is reopened to the public. In preparation for this collaborative effort, the lead developer has advised the development team to take a well-deserved break, emphasizing the importance of being refreshed and energized for the work ahead.

Shibarium and Its Impressive Scaling Abilities

Meanwhile, the second update on Shibarium’s scaling journey unveils a series of strategic moves undertaken to ensure a robust and seamless platform. 

Following the initial update, the team has been working tirelessly to refine the scaling mechanisms. Accordingly, Shibarium underwent temporary internal testing, a crucial step to identify any potential vulnerabilities before a wider rollout.

The updates also provide a glimpse into the monumental scaling achievements that have already taken place. The Alchemy team, renowned for their prowess in blockchain technology, has managed to scale Shibarium’s operations by an astounding 1,500%. 

Similarly, the decentralized team and validators have also made significant strides, scaling the server infrastructure by another remarkable 1,500%.
