Shiba Inu, an Ethereum-based meme coin, is presently in the limelight as its burn initiative has witnessed a significant surge in its token burn rate in the past day, suggesting increased engagement from the community.
Shiba Inu Daily Burn Rate Skyrockets
Data from Shibburn reveals that the last 24 hours have seen a notable spike in the Shiba Inu burn rate. The tracker reported that the burn rate has recorded a massive 1,411% increase today, January 30.
According to the platform, over 61 million SHIB tokens have been incinerated in the last 24 hours. The increase in burn rate coincides with a recent rally in the price of Shiba Inu.
Shibburn shows that the present rise in burn rate was caused by two large burn transactions. It was discovered that the two transactions destroyed a total of 48.9 million SHIB in less than one hour.
The first transaction orchestrated by the wallet address 0x85a860003705c56…7eb2f4bcc7 witnessed about 21 million SHIB being destroyed. Meanwhile, the second transaction carried out by another wallet address 0x85a860003705c56…7eb2f4bcc7 saw over 27 million SHIB tokens being burned.
The Shiba Inu burn rate might have been up in the past day, but in the past week, the rate appears to have been down. From the hourly SHIB burn update on X (formerly Twitter), the rate is down by over 48% in the past week. Furthermore, the report noted that over 113.42 million Shiba Inu tokens have been destroyed in the past seven days.
Even though tokens have been burned virtually every day for more than a year now, the burn rate has not made a crater in the supply that is in circulation. So far, Shiba Inu has burned over 410.70 trillion SHIB since the initiative was introduced.
Currently, the overall supply in circulation is about 581.29 trillion SHIB. This indicates more work to be done by the SHIB community before the incineration has a weighty effect.
SHIB Prices Recovers Amid Burn Rate Rise
Shiba Inu price, as of today, appears to have recovered from a lengthy bearish trend it has been struggling with. However, there is no solid proof that the rise in burn rate had any impact on the crypto asset’s recent rally.
As of the time of writing, the price of Shiba Inu was sitting at $0.000009254, indicating a 2.24% rise in the past 24 hours. CoinMarketCap reveals that its market cap and trading volume are up by 2.19% and 45.16% in the past day.
Furthermore, the digital asset is now ranked 17th overall in terms of market cap due to its recent price recovery. With the recovery, SHIB has attracted attention from investors and sparked fresh sentiments over possible long-term growth.
