The burnt tokens are from the fees collected on the Shibarium network, launched in August last year. So far, over 410 trillion Shiba Inu (SHIB) tokens are out of circulation via burns. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin is responsible for burning a majority of the tokens. Buterin received half of SHIB’s initial supply. He decided to burn 90% of the tokens he received and donated the rest to charity.

Will Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) price rally after the burns?

SHIB’s price has rallied 1.1% in the daily charts, probably due to the massive burns. However, the popular memecoin is still down by over 10% in the weekly charts and over 12% in the last 14 days. Moreover, SHIB’s price has fallen by 2.4% over the previous month.

Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) price has struggled through 2023 and has regained a zero after its decimal point, which it deleted in December. However, SHIB’s price may rally if we enter a bull market this year. Many analysts expect the cryptocurrency market to enter a bull run in 2024, fuelled by a spot Bitcoin (BTC) ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) and BTC’s halving event in April.
