More new mechanisms for burning Shiba Inu tokens are going to be introduced, according to the owner of one of the businesses that actively burns SHIB, as the developers of the meme crypto are working on them now.

Meanwhile, over the weekend, almost 110 million SHIB have been destroyed and the circulating supply continues to shrink.

"There will be burn mechanisms introduced"

Steven Cooper, owner of the Bigger Entertainment crypto record label that conducts regular SHIB burn parties, mentioned during a recent Twitter discussion that SHIB developers are working to build new mechanisms that would create more ways to incinerate SHIB—the second most popular canine cryptocurrency, also promoted as a "Dogecoin killer."

This tweet came in a thread, where Cooper encouraged the community to buy tickets to the next burn party on Feb. 14. The money will be used for buying Shiba Inu tokens, which will be burned on Valentine's Day.
