According to the recent tweet of the @shibburn Twitter account, over the past day, almost 10 million SHIB has been burned, i.e. taken out of circulation permanently.
A total of 30 million burned, but the price is not impacted
In the last twenty-four hours, an overall amount of 9,758,993 SHIB has been sent to an unspendable wallet, @shibburn Twitter user reports. According to their tweet, it took six transfers to a dead wallet to “burn” that large amount of the canine cryptocurrency.
Meanwhile, data provided by etherscan indicates that in the past five days’ various teams within the SHIB community have burned approximately 30 million Shiba Inu tokens.
@shibburn’s tweet reminds the community that by now slightly over forty-one percent of the overall SHIB supply (1 quadrillion) has been burned - 410,300,575,781,510 tokens.

Despite regular and even daily SHIB burns, the price of the second largest canine cryptocurrency remains in the $0.000033 range. On October 28, the “Dogecoin killer” SHIB managed to hit a historic peak of $0.00008845 per token. At the moment, the price is 62.68 percent below that all-time high level.

Hopes for Robinhood listing
As reported by U.Today at the end of December, the popular Robinhood trading app announced that it plans to roll out the beta testing phase of its crypto wallets in January.
The Shiba Inu community has been requesting the platform to list SHIB for several months already. The petition started on Change.org for that purpose has already left behind the half a million threshold of signatures. The community hopes that when/if Robinhood adds SHIB to its trading list, the price of the coin would reach a new significant all-time high.
