Data on SHIB burn transactions have accumulated on its website from etherscan for the convenience of SHIB fans.
"Burning" is the term that stands for the process of sending crypto coins to dead-end addresses from whence they cannot be spent or withdrawn. The goal of burning is to reduce the circulating supply, thus making the coin scarcer and attempt to help its price rise.
However, despite these regular large burn transactions and various partnerships that expand SHIB adoption, the price has not even reached the all-time high of $0.00008845 reached by the coin in October. At the moment, the price is almost 72% below this ATH.
Over the past week, SHIB has staged an almost 11% decline, according to CoinMarketCap, and has dropped by more than 5% in the past 24 hours. At press time, the token is trading at $0.000025.
