Shiba Inu Burn Rate Flatlines With 99% Crash, End Of The Road For SHIB?

The Shiba Inu (SHIB) burn rate is again under the radar following a drastic decline in the number of tokens burned. This development is significant considering the impact that these token burns are known to have on the meme coin. 

Shiba Inu Burn Rate Crashes By Over 99%

Data from the burn tracking website Shibburn shows that Shiba Inu’s burn rate has declined by 99.44% in the last 24 hours. Only 120,888 Shiba Inu tokens have been burned during this period, which is way low compared to the over 21 million tokens that were burned the previous day. 

The instability in the number of Shiba Inu tokens burned daily continues to be a problem for the meme coin’s ecosystem. This issue is believed to be mainly due to the significant drop in the number of daily transactions on the Shibarium network. The layer-2 network is known to have contributed largely to the 76 billion Shiba Inu tokens that were burned last year.  

However, Shibarium hasn’t had much impact on these token burns since the start of the year with its daily transactions dropping from millions recorded last year to just a few thousand transactions as of late. This development has hindered the network from deploying a part of the transaction fees earned to Shiba Inu burns like it did last year. 

Meanwhile, while Shiba Inu’s burn rate has dropped by over 99%, a positive takeaway is that it has increased by almost 15% in the last seven days. This is undoubtedly a welcome development that members of the Shiba Inu community will be glad about. However, the focus remains on sustaining this trend, given the positive impact it could have on Shiba Inu’s price, especially heading into the latter stages of the bull run.

SHIB Price Remains Unaffected

Shiba Inu’s price is currently on an upward trend despite the decline in the burn rate. Data from CoinMarketCap shows that the meme coin is up over 8% in the last 24 hours. Shiba Inu’s trading volume is also up by over 7% in the last 24 hours, signaling investors’ bullish sentiment towards the meme coin.

On-chain metrics also paint a bullish picture for the meme coin. Data from the market intelligence platform IntoTheBlock shows that Shiba Inu whales have been accumulating the meme coin in the last few days. Specifically, on-chain analytics platform SpotOnChain revealed a whale that just recently acquired 149.3 SHIB tokens

Meanwhile, the Shiba Inu ecosystem has experienced notable network growth, suggesting that new crypto investors are rotating their capital to the meme coin. Shiba Inu will likely continue to record an increased demand, with meme coins projected as one of the leading narratives in this bull run
