LucieSHIB explained that every transaction on the Shibarium network will be divided into 70% and 30%. When a user initiates a transaction of Shibarium and pays the gas fee (transaction fee), the fee will be used for two separate causes. To make transactions on the network, ‘priority fees are charged and will be used to pay the validators.

70% fee on Shibarium will be used to burn SHIB tokens, while 30% will be set aside for network maintenance. BONE is the native gas token on the L2 network and will be swapped to SHIB during the burn process.

“When users make transactions on the network, the base fee is locked on a Shibarium contract, while the priority fee is paid to validators. The base fee is divided, with 70% burned and 30% set aside for network maintenance,” said LucieSHIB.

She added, “Accumulated BONE tokens in the burn contract trigger the burn process on Ethereum’s L1 network. BONE tokens are swapped for SHIB tokens, which are then burned, effectively reducing the total supply.”
