More than 1.1 billion Shiba Inu tokens were burned in one single large transaction on Easter Sunday. The development is the largest burn of the year, in a climate where 1.5 million SHIB are removed out of circulation, on an average, daily. The last time 1 billion tokens were removed from circulation was in January 2023, when a combined 1,124,579,958 were sent to the dead wallet the same month. However, this time around, 1.1 billion tokens were burned in a single day in one large transaction.

The burn of this magnitude for a single day comes much before the Shibarium Layer-2 network’s release. The dog-themed token has 589 trillion in circulating supply, and Shibarium could be its only savior. The Shiba Inu team announced that each transaction initiated on Shibarium would burn SHIB tokens.
If the L2 solution burns a massive amount of tokens, it could help SHIB to sustainably scale up in price. However, the scale of the burns is unknown, as the Shibarium Layer-2 network is yet to be launched. The beta testnet is currently up giving users a glimpse of the network and how it operates in the future.
