Shibarium sees brief outage amid Shiba Inu’s Layer-3 blockchain ambitions

Shiba Inu has secured $12 million in a funding round through the upcoming TREAT token private token sale to power the development of its anonymous, privacy-focused Layer 3 (L3) blockchain network.

Lucy said:

“Layer 3 introduces enhanced privacy features not available in Layer 2 networks. This allows us to provide users with more privacy options and security measures when interacting with our ecosystem. ”

This move reflects Shiba Inu’s continued strategic shift towards a versatile utility blockchain network. Notably, Memecoin began this pivot last year with the successful deployment of Shibarium, the ecosystem’s Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) scaling solution.

Developers plan to leverage Zama City’s cutting-edge Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) technology to build an L3 network on top of Shibarium.

Shiba Inu explained FHE technology is similar to a “magic box” because it allows direct manipulation of encrypted data without decryption. This technology ensures that sensitive information is hidden during calculations.

The developer plans to release a preliminary version of the L3 network in the third quarter of this year. The network prioritizes regulatory compliance along with robust security and privacy measures.

TREAT will serve as a utility and governance token for the new privacy-centric L3 blockchain.
