After initial worries were voiced regarding the chain, the Shiba Inu Shibarium testnet, also known as the Puppy net, caught up without a hitch. With what appeared to be a clarification, the tokens also looked to be on the road to recovery from the FUD surrounding them.

There was some disagreement in the Shiba Inu community earlier in the week after the debut of the Shibarium. One of the community members noticed that the Layer 2 network (L2) was using the chain ID for an unrelated project. Due to the lack of prompt action, these worries had a detrimental effect on the price movement of SHIB and BONE.
One of the main Shiba Inu developers addressed the confusion with the chain ID when the worries were raised, and the accompanying Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) set in.
Kaal Dhairya said in a tweet that the chains chosen for the Alpha network rollout were randomly chosen. According to him, the chains were not reviewed before final deployment but were not registered to any projects when they were selected.
He continued by announcing the intended deployment of a new version of the Beta network with a new chain ID.
A scan of the L2 testnet with puppyscan showed that activities had ramped up. With an average block time of 5.0 seconds as of this writing, it had generated over 400,000. Also, it had already performed more than 2,500 transactions and had more than 2,500 wallets registered on the network.
A rise in Shiba Inu (SHIB) addresses was also visible in the lead-up to the release of Shibarium, as measured by Santiment’s active address statistic.
As of this writing, there were approximately 31,000 active SHIB addresses, which showed that it had maintained its previous level of success.
The daily timeframe chart for 15 March revealed that the FUD surrounding Shiba Inu (SHIB) was clearly visible. SHIB lost 7.45% of its value as of March 15, when the news of the Shibarium chain ID surfaced.
However, it soon recovered the next day and had increased in value by more than 6% as of this writing.

In contrast, BONE’s price trend has not been as favorable as SHIB’s. It only somewhat recovered once, on 17 March, when it gained 11% and finished the trading day at $1.33.
Except for 17 March, it has been downward since 15 March. As of this writing, it was trading at roughly $1.31, down over 1%.
