Last week, daily burns of SHIB reported by Shibburn, as covered by U.Today, sometimes reached over half a billion tokens.
On Friday, U.Today reported that business project @shib_superstore announced that its online shop that sells mobile phone games, Shib-branded merchandise and goods had been picked for an affiliated program of Amazon and would begin to regularly use part of their profits from that to buy and burn Shiba Inu.
First, this project burned SHIB every 15th day of each month, but now they have begun conducting burns more frequently—every Sunday.

Since May 29, the second biggest meme coin by market cap, Shiba Inu, has demonstrated a rise by over 14%; the price surged from $0.00001081 to $0.00001236.
