Shiba Inu burn rate rises by almost 2100% amid market uncertainties
The second-largest meme coin, shiba inu (SHIB), has seen notable drops in its burn rate for two consecutive weeks. Over the last 24 hours, however, the indicator has spiked by almost 2,100%.
According to data provided by SHIB BURN, SHIB’s burn rate has increased massively while its price is going downward.
Per the data, over 803 million tokens, worth roughly $8,300 at the time of writing, have been burnt in the past 24 hours. The largest burn transaction — almost 795 million SHIB — belongs to an address that still has $3.2 million worth of shiba inu, as on-chain data shows.
