Layer 2 blockchain network, Shibarium has recorded impressive growth shortly after its relaunch on August 28. The project was relaunched by its lead developer Shytoshi Kusama with support from other teams including Polygon, Unification Fund, and the decentralized Shibarium team.
In a blog post on August 28, Shytoshi expressed gratitude for the support he received from the aforementioned team after Shibarium experienced technical glitches following its initial launch on August 16.
During the first launch, the project experienced an increased and overwhelming user demand consequently forcing it to run into private mode. However, the L2 blockchain solution is now available in public mode and has recorded impressive growth so far.

Shortly after the relaunch, the project has achieved a new feat. A large growth in the number of transactions and number of wallets connected has been recorded. According to Shytoshi, prior to the announcement, the Shibarium network had gathered over 65,000 wallets and 350,000 transactions.
In fact, data from Shibariumscan – a blockchain explorer for the Ethereum network, show that August 25 had the highest daily transfers as it recorded over 132,000 transactions on Shibarium. In addition, there were over 66,000 transactions recorded on August 28. The total transactions now sit at 453,069 with a total of 101, 748 wallet addresses.
