Over the past 24 hours, a significant amount of Shiba Inu (SHIB) has been burned via transactions. SHIB has surged by nearly 4% in the past day, emerging as the second highest gainer among large crypto by market cap after Dogecoin (DOGE).
SHIB is currently in the green, with a 24-hour high of $0.00001144 and a low of $0.00001057. The token is moving upward after recording a sharp decline as of last week.
Over 25 Million SHIB Burned In 24 Hours
As a result of the Shiba Inu army’s consistency in burning SHIB tokens, the token’s burn rate has recorded a more than 20% spike in the last 24 hours. According to the Shiba Inu burn tracker, Shibburn, there have been a total of 25,767,627 SHIB tokens burned in the past 24 hours via eight separate transactions.
Of the eight transactions, SHIB super store, a themed SHIB product, burned the highest number of tokens through its weekly burn event. Over the past 24 hours, the store reported 9.5 million burned SHIB tokens in just a single transaction.
Alongside the burned tokens, the SHIB superstore also reported an additional 9.4 million Shiba Inu tokens distributed to the community as a reward. According to this platform, this move is an “advancement in community support and encouragement in the continuous event of burning SHIB.”
The SHIB superstore has since been a core player in the weekly SHIB burn events. Starting in September 2021, the store has burned 3.48 billion SHIB and has distributed roughly 314 million SHIB to the community via its burn and earn program.
As of last month, SHIB superstore recorded over 6.7 billion SHIB burned via 540 distinct transactions.
