$SHIB Burn Rate Skyrockets by 940% as Shibarium Transactions Keep Rising

In a surprising turn of events, the burn rate of the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Shiba Inu ($SHIB) has skyrocketed by an astonishing 940% within 24 hours. This surge in the burn rate translates to over 164 million SHIB tokens being sent to “dead wallets,” effectively removing them from the circulating supply.

According to data obtained from the burn tracking platform Shibburn, these substantial burns took place across 50 transactions, with one particularly noteworthy transaction incinerating a staggering 100 million SHIB tokens, significantly contributing to the surge in burn rate.

This surge in burn rate coincides with heightened activity in the Shiba Inu ecosystem’s layer-2 scaling solution, known as Shibarium. The network has recently witnessed a surge in transaction levels, achieving a new all-time high shortly after its reactivation.

Data from Shibarium network explorer Shibariumscan reveals that the Shibarium network’s transactions have surpassed the two million mark earlier this month, currently standing at 3.2 million transactions, with over 860,000 blocks being processed on the network.

Despite the concerted efforts within the Shiba Inu community to burn SHIB tokens, the cryptocurrency’s price has yet to experience the anticipated surge. Some analysts believe that Shiba Inu’s price may increase as adoption grows. As a result, the project’s team has been actively pursuing partnerships to enhance SHIB’s utility.

Notably, last year, the esteemed 162-year-old Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer began accepting SHIB and DOGE as payment options, among ten other cryptocurrencies. This move broadened the utility of SHIB in real-world transactions, as TAG Heuer is renowned for its luxury watches and fashion accessories.

Moreover, in recent developments, blockchain payments system FCF Pay announced that customers of financial giant HSBC can now use various cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin ($BTC), $XRP, and Shiba Inu ($SHIB), to pay their mortgage bills and loans. This integration of SHIB into mainstream financial services further highlights the growing adoption of cryptocurrencies in everyday transactions.

The Shiba Inu community continues to closely monitor developments within the ecosystem, including burn rates and utility-enhancing partnerships, in anticipation of potential price movements in the future.
