As for the recent twenty-four hours, over this period 5.6 million tokens have been burned via six transfers, according to Twitter user @shibburn. The user reminds the SHIB army that so far, out of the initial supply of 1 quadrillion, 410,300,521,864,319 SHIB has been taken out of circulation.

As reported by U.Today earlier this week, non-custodial platform NOWPayments that processes cryptocurrency payment transactions, stated it plans to add a feature which can be used by merchants for burning SHIB tokens.

SHIB unlikely to rally in 2022, top analyst believes

According to senior currency strategist at IG Group subsidiary DailyFX, Christopher Vecchio, the 2022 year that has just begun is unlikely to be fortunate for meme cryptocurrencies, such as Dogecoin and and its rival Shiba Inu.

In particular, as he put it, he would be very surprised to see these two coins rally and assumed that only Elon Musk would be able to save them by tweeting about these cryptocurrencies.

Vecchio reckons that Doge, SHIB and other meme coins are going to drop “deeper and deeper”. He is also bearish on Bitcoin, though, stating that the flagship crypto is facing “a crisis of faith” at the moment.
