Since yesterday morning, the SHIB community has again removed another large amount of its favorite canine crypto tokens, according to the @shibburn account on Twitter.

Beyond that, a major SHIB burning entity is readying its next scheduled burn party, targeting 600 million tokens to be destroyed. The goal of all of the SHIB Army's efforts to burn its tokens is to potentially make SHIB more scarce and give its price a substantial push upward.

1.157 billion SHIB incinerated

@shibburn account has reported that it has taken 33 transfers to burn an astounding 1,157,908,364 SHIB in the last 24 hours.

According to the website, where info on Shiba Inu burns are accumulated from the etherscan tracker, the largest single burn transfer was conducted 17 hours ago, and it carried 1,000,000,000 meme tokens.

As covered by U.Today, a similar amount of SHIB – 1,021,292,580 tokens – were moved to several dead wallets a day before, on March 22.

600 Million SHIB target set for April 3

Another major SHIB burning company, Bigger Entertainment, spearheaded by Steven Cooper, hopes to grab 600 million canine tokens to incinerate them during the next burn party that has been scheduled for April 3—in around 10 days.

The two previous burn parties were conducted by this company on Feb. 14 and Dec. 26. Since late October last year, Bigger Entertainment has already removed a total of 1,429,260,528 SHIB from circulation through burning.

So far, according to the website, they have 15,473,915 Shiba Inu to be burned in early April.

The company acquires SHIB for burning via its activity on YouTube by selling SHIB-branded merch, developing a fitness SHIB app, selling sponsor tickets to its burn parties and so on.

NOWPayments launches new SHIB burn feature

As covered by U.Today, crypto payment gateway NOWPayments has come up with a new mechanism for removing SHIB and Doge Killer (LEASH) coins from circulation.

The company has implemented a new feature that helps merchants to burn as many SHIB or LEASH tokens as they wish.

What they need to do is simply select a percentage markup for burning these meme coins. Then the new feature of NOWPayments will automatically calculate the amount of tokens to be burned—i.e., sent to a dead-end crypto address.
