Shiba Inu (SHIB) is making frantic efforts to upturn its dominant bearish turn and chart a positive growth course for the week. According to data from Shibburn, the meme coin burn rate is now pegged at 810.98%, with a total of 12,508,216 SHIB tokens sent to dead wallets in the past 24 hours.

Token burning has always been considered a unique metric that is very important to the Shiba Inu ecosystem. While its impact may not be felt in the short term, the burn rate is designed to gradually and permanently take a significant portion of the token's supply out of circulation.

This scheduled plan to reduce the circulation of SHIB is designed to help the price grow in the long term through the scarcity that will be introduced. To complement this scarcity, Shiba Inu developers are working relentlessly on the Shibarium Layer 2 protocol that has gone live on the testnet, dubbed Puppynet.

The Shibarium protocol is billed to power the rise of numerous applications and smart contracts with tailored solutions that will not only attract users but also fuel interest in the SHIB token in the long term. With a healthy balance of higher demand and reduced supply, price growth is expected to be the obvious beneficiary in the long term.
