The Shiba Inu burn initiative was first revealed in July 2021. It was when the Shiba Inu development team announced that they would be burning a significant portion of their SHIB tokens.
The Shiba Inu burn was designed to reduce the overall supply of SHIB tokens in circulation, increasing the value of each remaining token. However, the burn rate has been fluctuating, with certain days posting good numbers and others posting plummeting rates.
