Shiba Inu’s Burn Rate Skyrockets by 900%: Will the Price Follow Suit?
  • The burn rate for Shiba Inu spiked by 900 percent after four massive transactions. 
  • Shib’s price still struggles to stay afloat despite ongoing reduction in supply. 

The Shiba Inu network has recorded a major spike in its on-chain burn rate. The market appears to be leaning towards a bullish position as supply is poised to be pushed to the lowest levels.

As shown by on-chain metrics, Shiba Inu’s burn rate has skyrocketed significantly in recent times. Very recently, the market saw its burn rate spike to notable levels.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, SHIBBURN, a popular X user dedicated to sharing Shiba Inu-related updates, shared a post detailing the recent development.

Shiba Inu notably burned a staggering 83,307,739 SHIB tokens over the last 24 hours. These burns were facilitated by four transactions. The recent event has triggered an upswing in burn rate. Within a 24-hour time frame, the burn rate has soared by 900 percent.

As the post read;

In the past 24 hours, there have been a total of 83,307,739 SHIB tokens burned and 4 transactions. Visit shibburn.com to view the overall total of SHIB tokens burned, circulating supply, and more.

Throughout the year, Shiba Inu has been consistent in burning tokens. The network records a significant burn rate on an hourly basis. The burn rate signifies Shiba Inu’s deflationary properties. Should Shiba Inu continue on this path, supply is certain to reduce significantly.

Demand for Shiba Inu is also poised to increase as a result of the consistency in burn rate. So far, Shiba Inu has burned more than 490 trillion SHIB.

Shib Bulls Struggle to Stay Afloat

Typically, a reduction in token supply is reflected in price action. However, this time, the increase in Shiba Inu burn has done nothing to boost Shib’s price. Although Shiba Inu has succeeded in clearing out weekly, and monthly losses, the asset is still struggling to maintain stability at this time.

During the time of this report, Shiba Inu is trading for a price of $0.000008316, as trading volume declines by 62 percent.

As depicted on the technical charts, SHIB saw a drop in its MVRV ratio last week. As market sentiments turned negative, its 1-week price volatility also dropped.

Meanwhile, Shibarium, the Ethereum Layer 2 blockchain network designed to scale Shiba Inu went live on the mainnet back in August. Built on the proof-of-participation (PoP), consensus mechanism, Shibarium is attempting to introduce decentralization into the meme token ecosystem.

Demand for Shibarium appears to be growing rapidly. Recent data shared from Coinmarketcap revealed that wallets on the Shibarium network are skyrocketing. According to Coinmarketcap’s data, Shibarium has surpassed 100,000 wallets on its platform. It bears mentioning that 35,000 of these wallets came in within 24 hours after Shibarium’s relaunched on August 28.
