Shiba Inu Coin Burn Rate Plunges Ahead Of Shibarium Launch

Shiba Inu, the world’s second largest meme crypto registered a major price surge ahead of the Shibarium launch and recent partnerships. SHIB prices have spiked by a whopping 67% over the past 30 days. However, SHIB burn rate has dropped by more than 99% over the past 24 hours which reflects a low enthusiasm among the SHIBarmy.

SHIB burn rate plunges: What’s wrong?

Despite the recent price surge, the SHIB burn rate hasn’t performed well in comparison with the price. According to Shibburn, a tracker of removed Shiba Inu tokens, over the past 24 hours, the burn rate of SHIB has gone down by 99.13%.

The meme coin has maintained a positive streak of SHIB burns since the beginning of 2023, but not all days are gold. The reason behind the drop could be short-term traders gradually losing interest in the aforementioned meme coin. However, many meme coin lovers believe the launch of Shibarium might help them burn more SHIB, which can provide a boost to the burn rate.

Shiba Inu Towards the Bull Run

At press time, SHIB is trading at $0.00001411, with a 20.59% gain in value over the past seven days. With a market capitalization of $7.75 billion and the circulating supply is approximately $505,499,973 SHIB as per the crypto market tracker CoinMarketCap.
