SHIB’s much-hyped new layer-2 scaling solution, Shibarium, has now seen over a million transactions over Puppynet, Shibarium’s testnet. 

The PuppyScan.Shib reported that Shibarium’s beta version has 16.7 million wallet addresses and is currently experiencing 536,181 daily transactions.

At the time of writing, SHIB was trading at $0.007407, up by 12 percent in the last seven days.
