The Shibburn tracking service that watches SHIB “burn transactions” spreads the word on its website that within the last 24 hours, the burn rate of the second largest meme coin has jumped by nearly 190%.
With 56,353,945 Shiba Inu meme coins burned in total, the rate has jumped by 186.75% - this is more than double what the community saw on this site over the past two days.
Over the past hour, these burns have accelerated with more than 16.33 million transferred to dead wallets in four transactions. Before that burn transfers occurred every couple of hours, sometimes twice per hour, though, too.
A chunk of 10,505,695 SHIB remains the largest that has been burned since last morning, per Shibburn.
