@shib_superstore online shop, which sells games for mobile phones and SHIB-branded merchandise, keeps burning Shiba Inu on a regular basis, including the affiliate program with Amazon.

22.8 million SHIB to be burned via Amazon
@shib_superstore is the Twitter page of Travis Johnson, smartphone game developer, whose store sells games, SHIB-branded goods and merch. On a weekly basis, he buys SHIB with a portion of his profits and sends these meme coins to dead-wallets.
In a recent tweet, Johnson spread the word that by now he has earned nearly $300 via the Amazon affiliate program in August in order to buy SHIB with this money and burn it later on. Three hundred dollars equals 22,883,295 Shiba Inu.
Aside from that, one of his games brought $1,200 on Saturday for purchasing and burning SHIB — this amounts to 93,312,597 meme tokens.
