The community keeps burning Shiba Inu tokens on a daily basis. Additionally, Shibarium is also set to remove tokens out of the circulating supply.

The real impact of Shibarium Will Reflect in 8-12 Months

In 2022, ‘Queenie’ chalked out a hypothetical scenario about how many burns could actually transpire. She projected that if things went as planned, around 111 trillion SHIB tokens could be burned each year. That is approximately 20% of Shiba Inu’s circulating supply. She projected on Twitter that even if a 1% transaction fee for SHIB burns was implemented in Shibarium and ShibaSwap 2.0, they could collectively burn trillions of tokens per year.

According to data from Shibburn, around 25,100,470 SHIB tokens have been burned over the past 24 hours. However, that marks a 74.94% decline in the 24-hour timeframe.

Community estimates suggest that Shibarium could burn 5 trillion Shiba Inu tokens every month, summing up to 60 trillion tokens every year.
