A big leap for memes!
Shytoshi introduced a Shibarium Technology intake form for those looking to build on the network. He added that documentation for validators will be released next week, using which they could set up test nodes.
But amidst the excitement, Shytoshi had a piece of advice for the SHIB community. He reminded them not to spend their token on Puppynet as the current version is only for testing purposes.
Regarding the burn mechanism, the lead developer mentioned that SHIB burns would depend on the transactions in the network and a new chart for burned tokens will be integrated into the burn portal.
However, data from Shibburn revealed that the burn rate declined by over 95% in the last 24 hours, with over 23 million tokens removed from circulation.

On the other hand, SHIB’s supply on exchanges dropped, indicating that holders anticipated a rise in SHIB’s price and preferred HODLing the tokens, as per Santiment. The network growth also increased as new addresses found SHIB lucrative.
The cumulative effect of these metrics pushed the investors’ sentiment high into the positive territory.
