Game dev Travis Johnson, who regularly burns Shiba Inu tokens using some of the profits from his online shop, has taken to Twitter to share that, in this month so far, he has managed to burn nearly 15 million Shiba Inu via the affiliate program with Amazon.
He pointed out that this burn did not cost anyone in the SHIB army any extra money out of their pockets.

Johnson tweeted that, thanks to the opportunity offered by Amazon for making profits from sales, so far in August he has managed to remove 14,804,845 SHIB from the circulating supply, which is evaluated at $220.
Since he earned this money as a commission from the affiliate program, he specified that nobody has had to spend any extra money to help burn these Shiba Inu tokens.
