Shiba Inu's recent developments
Top crypto exchange Binance recently announced adding a new Shiba Inu trading pair, SHIB/GBP. In response to the community's feedback, the Shiba Inu team recently disclosed that land can now be purchased with the Shiba Inu token in SHIB: The Metaverse, while sharing the details of minting land with SHIB.
Also, Shiba Inu has gained new holders this week. According to WhaleStats, the total number of SHIB holders is presently 1,144,895. Although an increase in holders may not have an immediate impact on the price, it may signify interest in an asset over time.
According to reports, more than 25 billion SHIB tokens have been burned in the first week of the SHIB burn portal's operation. By moving SHIB tokens to a burn address, users can permanently remove them from the circulating supply. In this way, it is feasible to make the token a little more scarce, potentially increasing its value.
