Shiba Inu’s burn rate declines

Recent data revealed a noticeable decline in the burn rate of Shiba Inu. Information shared by Shibburn, a SHIB burn rate tracker, indicated that the burn rate decreased by more than 85% within the past seven days. 

Additionally, according to the Shibburn site, only 360,222 SHIB tokens were burned in the past 24 hours, resulting in an almost -84% burn rate. Also, over 22 hours have lapsed since the last burn. This current burn rate departs from the consistent millions of SHIB tokens burned in previous instances.

Furthermore, a closer examination of the volume metric on Santiment sheds light on a potential cause of the burn rate decline. Analysis of the volume chart indicated a decline in SHIB trading volume.

As of this writing, the volume stood at approximately 64.6 million. It represented a significant decrease from the over 100 million volumes recorded around 11 June. This decline in volume implied a decrease in the number of SHIB transactions, thus contributing to the decrease in the burn rate.

According to the seven-day active addresses metric, SHIB active addresses began trending upward around 6 June, reaching the highest level in the past two months. As of this writing, there were over 77,000 active addresses.
