In an unexpected move, Shiba Inu Community removed 8,000,000 SHIB from existence permanently in a single transaction in the previous 24 hours.
This is unquestionably a massive development for the Shiba Inu Community.
However, the community was less excited about the burn spike than expected.
This is because the latest increase appeared enormous compared to the Shiba Inu Community’s paltry 250,000 SHIB destructions on April 19.
However, the total burn rate of SHIB has increased dramatically due to this unusual move, by an impressive 3500% in just one day.
