Shibarium Back Online After High Traffic Halted Block Production
Shibarium’s mainnet is back online after experiencing a day of technical difficulties that halted block production and caused nearly $2 million of Ether (ETH) to become stuck on its cross-chain bridge. The launch of the Layer-2 platform had initially caused Shiba Inu (SHIB) to drop 15%. However, on-chain signals suggest a bullish divergence opportunity for both SHIB and Bone ShibaSwap (BONE).
The Mysterious Whale
A mysterious Ethereum whale sold off their holdings in BONE and SHIB tokens, totaling over $1 million in value. This whale sold 979,469 BONE coins for 787 ETH at an average price of 1.47 per coin; however, the current market value has dropped even further to 1.23 according to CoinGecko data. Afterwards, this whale then transferred 143 billion SHIB tokens to Binance after Shibarium’s bug was discovered. Surprisingly, the massive whale also acquired 1,068,448,646,503 PEPE coins at an estimated cost of $1.27 million dollars before transferring them to a separate wallet address.
On-Chain Signals Suggest Bullish Opportunity

Additionally while it remains uncertain what will happen with nearly $ 2million worth of ETH stuck yesterday on Shibarium’s cross chain bridge – overall future outlook appears positive due to increasing concentrations in both SHIB & BONE token prices suggesting potential upside opportunities exists if we look ahead into future days/weeks/months etc..
