Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) layer-2 network, Shibarium, is one of the most highly anticipated launches this year. According to a message posted on Shibarium’s Telegram channel, the official documentation for the upcoming layer-2 network is complete. The message also said that the team will try and release “more things than docs if possible.” It was mentioned that he developers are checking if everything is working smoothly and hence the delay.


SHIB supporters will be able to put up test nodes once the documentation is published. Also, the documents will provide information on Shibarium’s operations, gas operability, delegators, validators, etc. Shibarium is expected to allow faster transactions and make them less expensive. Shiba Inu burns will occur with each transfer on Shibarium, according to Shytoshi Kusama, who goes by the nickname Shytoshi.

The launch will also mean that SHIB will have its own network, and will no longer depend on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. SHIB will cease to be an ERC-20 token.

Will Shiba Inu postpone Shibarium any further?

The documents for Shiba Inu’s Shiabrium network were supposed to be released a year ago. However, technical delays within the project meant that the date kept getting pushed back. The delays have caused quite a stir in the community, who are now accustomed to hearing “very soon.” However, since the testnet went live on March 11, the final launch could be on the horizon.

Nonetheless, the testnet launch did not go as smoothly as many expected. The project was accused of stealing the code from the Rinia project, as they shared the same Chain ID. However, Rinia’s testnet developer has come forward and said that the Shibarium team did not steal anything, and all his code is open-source. The developer’s only complaint was that the Shibarium team continued to use the same Chain ID, which was in honor of his late grandmother.

At press time, Shiba Inu was trading at $0.00001081, down by 0.8% in the last 24 hours.
