140.7 million SHIB added to the burn pot

The @shib_superstore Twitter account that represents the official page of the Johnson SHIB burn games has stated that so far in March, they have prepared a total of $3,159 worth of Shiba Inu for the burn event that regularly takes place on the 15 day of each month.

This is the dollar equivalent of 140,712,694 SHIB canine tokens. On March 1, this Twitter handle announced that they had managed to raise a staggering 514,503,816 SHIB for the burn event.

However, in fiat this amount does not look as exciting as in crypto - $12,806. By now, the total amount of SHIB to be destroyed equals roughly 655,216,510, depending on the moves of the token price.
