At the end of last year, Shytoshi stated on social media that he had just met with the Unification team, where they discussed the final stages of making Shibarium and then launching it. Back then, Shytoshi tweeted that they were "aligning, onboarding, finalizing." He also added his most frequently used phrase related to the upcoming release of Shibarium: "soon. Very soon."
Shibarium is the Layer 2 solution of the SHIB ecosystem for the Ethereum chain it runs upon. Layer 2 solutions allow a blockchain to conduct a lot more transactions at higher speeds and lower fees, thus preventing any congestion. Ethereum chain used to have those features in 2018-2019 since the majority of coins on the crypto market were initially built on this blockchain.
SHIB Discord boasts adding Shibarium section
Shiba Inu influencer @ShibBPP has tweeted that SHIB Discord has added a new section made specially to post announcements related to Shibarium and its much-anticipated launch, which the SHIB army hopes will happen in the very near future, bearing in mind Shytoshi's "very soon" tease.

Over the holiday weekend, Shytoshi tweeted that work on Shibarium is being finalized. However, the Layer 2 solution will not be released during the holiday season, as this is time that developers need to spend with their families and relax overall. This work must be done thoroughly, carefully and with no rush, he tweeted, again adding that the launch will take place "very soon."
As reported by U.Today earlier, the Twitter handle of Shibarium announced that the solution will only be using BONE token for gas fees. It also reminded the community that Shibarium is being created to support SHIB token, so there will be no other coins supported on that network.
Over the past 24 hours, BONE token's price staged a 15% rise. Three days ago, it was reported that during the past seven days, the growth of BONE constituted more than 12%.
