The significant decline can be attributed to a decrease in attention on the Shiba Inu burn initiative due to a shift in the community’s focus.
The Shiba Inu (SHIB) burn rate has dropped by up to 96% in the past 24 hours, owing to a substantial decline in burns compared to the previous day. This is attributed to decreased attention as the community focuses on developing Shibarium, SHIB: The Metaverse, and other notable projects.
Data from Shibburn, a community-driven Shiba Inu burn tracker, indicates that the community has only incinerated 47,664 SHIB tokens in one transaction in the past 24 hours. This marks a 96.19% decrease from the amount of tokens burned the previous day, which stood at 1.25 million SHIB. The latest burn transaction occurred 22 hours ago.
Notably, the past week has seen a particular decline in burns, with only 15 burn transactions carried out. These transactions have cumulatively incinerated 43.95 million SHIB, a 97.62% decrease from the figure observed two weeks back.
The largest single transaction within the week occurred on April 21 and involved the incineration of 14.2 million SHIB. The second largest saw 10.26 million SHIB burned on April 23. Following this transaction, the project’s burn rate surged by a whopping 973%, marking a massive increase from previous figures.
It bears mentioning that while the burn rate has been predominantly down recently, the community has occasionally observed the incineration of large amounts of SHIB tokens. Notably, one of the largest burns in recent times occurred on April 14 and involved the burn of a whopping 1.49 billion SHIB by Koyo Token. The burn rate skyrocketed by 30,000%.
Amid the sustained burns, up to 410.63 trillion SHIB has been burned to date, leaving a total supply of 589.36 Shiba Inu, out of which 574 trillion is in circulation.
The Shiba Inu community focuses on developing Shibarium, ShibaSwap 2.0, and the Shiba Inu Metaverse. These projects are meant to introduce utility and other support burns. Earlier this month, a SHIB proponent formed a hypothetical computation that could burn 111 trillion tokens yearly.
