Here’s how SHIB price may reach $0.01
Steven Cooper, owner of Bigger Entertainment, believes that he knows how to help push the SHIB price toward $0.01.

By this, the company owner meant selling NFTs, merch and tickets to events for SHIB and then destroying them during so-called "burn parties."
The next burn party will occur on Feb. 14, Valentine's Day.
