According to the Shibburn X account, 364,382,742 SHIB tokens were burned in the last seven days, representing a 466.83% increase in the weekly burn rate.

The 466% rise in burns indicates a concerted effort within the community to enhance the coin's scarcity in anticipation of a potential price boost.

However, the reality has been quite the opposite. Despite the aggressive burn rate, SHIB's price has tumbled, reflecting a 22% decrease over the past week. This price drop could be attributed to a variety of factors, including broader market conditions, investor sentiment and profit-taking activities by investors.

Crypto market faces volatility

The cryptocurrency market has been experiencing increased volatility since the week's start, with many coins facing downward pressure.

Bitcoin fell for the fourth straight trading session, part of a larger crypto sell-off that contrasted with recent record highs in global stock markets. Shiba Inu experienced higher losses, reaching 10%.
