Shibarium paused shortly after its Aug. 16 launch due to an insane influx of users. The team immediately swooped into action to scale its operations and commenced deep testing on the network.
Updates were relayed consistently as testing evolved, with tremendous progress being reported at each count. In the most recent update shared by Shiba Inu leader Shytoshi Kusama, Shibarium is now enhanced and optimized after days of testing and tweaking its parameters.
New features have been deployed within a short space of time, which include a new monitoring system and additional fail-safes, including rate limiting at the RPC level and auto server reset in case of a reoccurrence of major traffic.
Kusama teased additional validators going live and a test wrap-up before relaunching Shibarium to the public in the coming steps.

The new enhancements are intended to better serve the community. The features at the top of the blockchain explorer appear to have been updated with the addition of a new metric called "Gas Tracker," as well as a prominent search bar.
A graphical display depicting daily transactions is also included.
Shibarium remains in testing, as seen in the updated statistics on Puppyscan. According to the explorer, "Puppynet" has performed 36,758,800 transactions thus far. There are currently 2,208,298 total blocks; 17,070,222 wallet addresses and a gas tracker reading of 1.03 Gwei. Daily transactions are coming in at 168,800.
