Two transactions accounted for about 85% of the 37.4 million SHIB burn.
While some community members have recently voiced complaints about the rate of SHIB burns, it bears mentioning that it looks poised to surge when Shibarium launches. As reported on Saturday, the Layer 2 solution will burn SHIB with every transaction.
Though there is no set launch date, recent reports indicate that developers are close to rolling out the beta version of the protocol. Notably, they recently clarified that BONE is the only token users will use on the protocol for gas.
SHIB is currently experiencing a price rally with most of the crypto market. It is up 5.11% in the last 24 hours, trading for $0.000008854 at press time, with a 549 trillion SHIB circulating supply.
