Although there is no timeline for the mainnet launch, the team said Shibarium cannot be silently rolled out. Some things that have to be done to aid the upgrade were also discussed.

Shiba Inu’s developers also noted that they will use Shibarium in place of ETH 2.0 upgrades that is expected to launch officially this year. Using a layer 2 scaling solution would greatly drop the fees of the network.
