The wallet incinerated over 2 billion Shiba Inu tokens in the past two days.
Although the record burns over the last day, the overall Shiba Inu’s burn rate declined by -71.28% compared to the previous day when a herculean 2,204,313,475 (2.20B) SHIB were destroyed through fifty-eight separate transactions.
The burn of a large amount of Shiba Inu tokens from an address that is a SHIB contract deployer makes the Community link the burns with the Shiba Inu team and the upcoming release of the Shibarium Public Beta.
According to an official announcement by the team, the beta version of Shibarium is scheduled to be released this week.
On the other hand, Shiba Inu’s mainstream adoption continues to gain momentum. This is evidenced by the recent partnership between Xeni, an online travel booking portal, and BitPay, enabling the use of Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies as payment.
In addition, NOWNodes, a well-known provider of blockchain node infrastructure, has announced its integration plan for Shibarium following its earlier declaration of support for the project.
Meanwhile, large investors in Ethereum, such as “BlueWhale0073,” are accumulating significant amounts of Shiba Inu, with reports indicating the purchase of over 215 billion SHIB worth $2.2 million in the past 24 hours and 674 billion SHIB in the past ten days.
