Shibarium, Shiba Inu's layer-2 solution, is undergoing maintenance on its RPC nodes, according to a recent social media post by Shiba Inu developer Kaal Dhairya (@kaaldhairya).
The main network remains operational, but users and developers have been advised to utilize the alternative RPC node provided by NowNodes in the interim.
NowNodes and Shibarium
As reported by U.Today, NOWNodes recently detailed its support for the Shibarium ecosystem, noting that its Shibarium RPC Full Node is geared towards enabling developers and crypto enterprises to create and expand on the Shibarium platform without constraints.
The firm is also keen on fostering collaborations and has already begun supporting Tangem with Shibarium integrations.
For those looking to connect with Shibarium via NOWNodes, a simple process has been laid out: users are to visit the NOWNodes website, create a profile, select the Shibarium network, and generate an API key.
NOWNodes has committed itself to bolstering innovations on Shibarium, positioning itself as a pivotal player in the network's expansion.
Shibarium's steady growth
Since its launch, Shibarium has been enjoying steady growth. With over 1.3 million blocks processed, an average block time of 5.0 seconds, and 3.59 million transactions recorded, the blockchain demonstrates robust activity.
The network also boasts over 1.25 million wallet addresses and sees an average of 12.68 thousand daily transactions.
The Shiba Inu (SHIB) token is currently priced at $0.00000767, showcasing a moderate 0.6% daily increase, with a more pronounced 12.3% uptick over a more extended period.
