SHIB Smashes Major New Utility Milestone

SHIB price and burn rate jump

Over the past 24 hours, according to data shared by Shibburn recently, the burn rate of SHIB rose by over 1,000% with a total of 15,487,160 SHIB canine coins destroyed.

Gradually, the SHIB community keeps burning these meme tokens, pushing them to dead wallets and out of circulation. The ultimate goal is to reduce the circulating supply substantially in order to achieve a level of scarcity for SHIB, which would enable a massive price surge.

By now, according to the Shibburn site, the community has managed to remove 410,649,283,181,166 SHIB from the market and lock them in unspendable wallets. The overall amount of SHIB circulating out there now stands at 578,990,220,290,515 SHIB. Aside from that, 10,360,496,528,318 SHIB are currently locked in staking protocols.

Over the past 24 hours, Shiba Inu managed to rise slightly under 2%. However, over the weekend, the SHIB price increase was a lot bigger — more than 7%. By now, it has been annihilated.
