This represents a 282% increase in burn rate compared to the past week, where the Community removed 304,764,835 (304.76 million) SHIB through one hundred and fifty-four (154) individual transactions.
MARSWAP (MSWAP), a native token of MARSWAP DEX, emerged as the top SHIB burner of the week. The community-driven SHIB burn project embarked on an aggressive burning spree over the weekend, eliminating 939,788,095 (939.78 million) SHIB from circulation forever through one hundred and one (101) distinct transactions.
MSWAP has implemented a 2% tax on every transaction. The project utilizes this tax to buy and burn SHIB.
On August 13th, the project officially reached the milestone of over 3 billion burned SHIB tokens.

Despite the massive burn, the overall SHIB burn rate plunged 16 percent over the last day.
On the other hand, the Whales’ interest in Shiba Inu revived ahead of the highly anticipated Shibarium launch. As reported earlier by The Crypto Basic, a newly surfaced Whale accumulated 4,599,850,345,603 (4.59 trillion) SHIB, valued at $48,252,430 ($48.25 million) in one robust transaction.
In addition, Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer of SHIB, has officially confirmed that the remaining BONE supply will soon be minted, leading to the renunciation of the BONE contract. This announcement has left Shiba Inu enthusiasts on the edge of their seats as they eagerly await the Shibarium Mainnet launch. However, the team remained tight-lipped about the exact launch date.
