Shibarium has finally managed to get its Mainnet alive after an initial launch failure on Aug 16, 2023.

According to a Shibarium developer, Polygon Labs played a crucial role in getting the Mainnet online.

Shiba Inu’s blockchain, Shibarium faced a outage on its initial launch day, i.e., 16 Aug 2023.

As per the official blog of Shiba Inu, a high influx of users on Shibarium caused the crash.

Despite being a tough competitor of Shiba Inu, Polygon lent a helping hand and successfully restored Shiba Inu’s blockchain.

Shytoshi Kusama, lead developer, said that when Shibarium was about to crash, he gave a call to Polygon Labs founder Sandeep Nailwal.

Kusama gave special thanks to Sandeep, JD, Krishna, and others from Polygon as well as to the decentralized team of Shibarium development.

Polygon made one of the largest gains from this experience. The developers at Polygon got the first real hand experience of reviving a crashed blockchain Mainnet of one of the top crypto ecosystems.
