Shibarium on Fire

The popular memecoin – Shiba Inu – has recently been in the spotlight thanks to its layer-2 blockchain solution – Shibarium. The network’s daily transactions exploded at the start of December, with their number ranging between 5 million and 7.9 million in the past ten days. The massive uptrend brought the total number of transactions to above 80 million.

This is not the only milestone that the memecoin project has reached lately since total blocks on Shibarium exceeded the 2 million mark (according to Shibariumscan).

The advancement of the L2 scaling solution has been touted as a major factor that could contribute to a SHIB price rally. However, the asset’s price has plunged approximately 3% in the past 24 hours, resonating with the correction of the entire cryptocurrency market. 

The recent decline has affected some SHIB investors. According to IntoTheBlock data, only 23% of Shiba Inu holders are currently sitting on paper profits, while 62% are in the red.
