Shiba Inu burn rate hits 1 billion

Recent data from Shiburn indicated a notable increase in the total number of Shiba Inu token burns over the past few days. At the time of writing, data revealed that more than 1.8 billion SHIB tokens have been burned within the last seven days. This figure was nearly twice the amount burned in the preceding seven days. 

Moreover, within the last 24 hours, approximately 667 million tokens have been burned. This surge in burning activity could likely be attributed to the impending launch of Shibarium.

The L2 platform’s testnet has been operational for several months, and the beta version is anticipated to be released before the week concludes.

Shiba Inu active addresses surge

Data provided by Into The Block indicated a recent surge in the activity of Shiba Inu’s addresses over the past seven days, displaying a clear upward trend. The accompanying chart illustrated that the count of active addresses experienced a notable upswing, surpassing 8,000 around 12 August.

As of this writing, however, there has been a slight adjustment in these figures. The count of active addresses settled at around 6,000. Furthermore, the numbers for non-zero and new addresses stabilized at approximately 2,000 and 3,000, respectively.
