Shiba Inu’s L2 sees decreasing transactions

Following its restart after an initial setback, Shibarium recently experienced a surge in transactions, achieving a historic high just a few days ago.

Data from its Shibariumscan indicated a consistent upward trend, with daily transactions peaking at over 200,000 on 11 September. However, at the time of this update, the transaction volume had slightly decreased to approximately 183,000. 

Furthermore, the scanner reported that the cumulative number of transactions on the platform had surpassed 2.6 million, and the total number of wallets had exceeded 1.2 million.

SHIB 24-hour burn rate declines

Over the last 24 hours, Shiba Inu’s native token SHIB experienced a significant decrease in its burn rate. Shibburn’s data revealed a nearly 50% reduction in SHIB’s burn rate within this timeframe.

Furthermore, over the past 24 hours, an impressive 31 million SHIB tokens were burned, contributing to a cumulative total burn of over 410 trillion as of this writing.

Shiba Inu’s addresses become less active
