Shibburn’s confirmation came on the heels of discussions that erupted on the matter, as several proponents became skeptical of the development.

burntSHIB is a token sent to addresses that burn Shiba Inu using the burn portal. The token is not tradable, and its sole purpose is to track the amount of Shiba Inu tokens incinerated by any given address. It has a 1:1 ratio to any SHIB token burnt. If an address burns 1 SHIB through the burn portal, it will automatically be awarded 1 burntSHIB.
Considering this, the KoyoToken address is observed to hold a massive 4.631 billion burntSHIB tokens as of press time. This automatically means the address has burnt 4.631 billion Shiba Inu through the burn portal. These tokens were incinerated in the past 10 days amid the project’s elaborate burn campaign.
The Crypto Basic previously highlighted this cluster of burn transactions carried out by KoyoToken on several occasions. The project incinerated up to 924 million Shiba Inu in a single transaction on March 17. They also burnt 451 million SHIB on March 14 and 591.9 million SHIB on March 12.
As of press time, over 2.07 billion SHIB has been incinerated by the community in the past week, with KoyoToken accounting for most of those transactions.
