Over a staggering 700 million SHIB meme coins have been burnt over the last 48 hours, according to the Twitter page of Shibburn crypto tracker.
This account accumulates data on meme coin burns from the Etherscan platform, bringing it all in one spot for the Shiba Inu army.
In the meantime, an Ethereum whale has acquired an astonishing amount of SHIB—241.3 billion tokens.
707 million SHIB destroyed by community
In a recent tweet, the aforementioned SHIB tracker stated that in the past 24 hours, a total of 404,393,504 SHIB tokens have been removed from circulation by getting moved to unspendable crypto addresses, i.e., burned.

From that amount, a 400 million lump was incinerated in merely one transaction. Earlier, @Shibburn also tweeted that during the previous day, 303.6 million Shiba Inu were sent to "incinerator wallets."
Therefore, the sum of SHIB burned in the past two days equals roughly 707 million SHIB.
