Shibburn crypto tracker has summarized the overall amount of Shiba Inu tokens burned over the past 31 days of May. This turned out to be nearly 16 billion meme coins.

In May, Shiba Inu reached several major milestones related to its Shibarium beta and security rating. Some of that contributed to the massive amount of burned SHIB that occurred during that month.

15.4 billion SHIB locked in dead wallets

According to a recent tweet by the aforementioned source, in May, the Shiba Inu community burned a total of 15,369,335,177 SHIB meme coins worth less than $150,000, taking 191 transactions to achieve that impressive result.

During May, every week, massive lumps from slightly over one billion to more than three billion SHIB were burned by recently launched project Blaze Token. This week they have burned 3,601,495,249 Shiba Inu, for example.

In total, to date, the Blaze Token team has burned 11,557,310,052 Shiba Inu – nearly all that was transferred to unspendable SHIB wallets in May.

Over the past 24 hours, the SHIB burn rate shows zero value, but still, 13,800,784 meme coins have been removed from the circulating supply.
