This was achieved through nine separate transactions within a 24-hour period, effectively reducing the circulating supply of SHIB tokens.
The largest transaction during the recent burn event was initiated by the newly launched Koyo (KYO) token, which transferred the most significant amount of SHIB tokens. This transaction involved transferring 733.02M SHIB tokens to a dead wallet, and it occurred about 12 hours before the time of writing.
