August SHIB burns surpass July's by 2x thanks to Shibarium

On Friday, the Shibburn explorer spread the word in its tweet that the month of August was far richer for SHIB burns than July. Compared to July's 2 billion burned Shiba Inu tokens, in August, close to 6 billion SHIB were locked in dead-end wallets.

In the middle of August, the Layer-2 solution Shibarium affiliated with Shiba Inu was launched and each transaction began contributing to SHIB burns. Part of the gas fee, which is paid in BONE tokens, is set aside by the dev team to be converted into SHIB and burned later on, when it exceeds a certain minimum amount.

At the time of this writing, the SHIB price shows a rise by 1.30% and is changing hands at $0.00000790. This was a small recovery after the 7.20% price decline that lasted from Aug. 29 until Sept. 1.
