The Shiba Inu team provided an update on Saturday confirming that Shibarium layer-2 network will ‘burn’ SHIB tokens after launch. Therefore, Shibarium could be the key for Shiba Inu to breach the $0.01 mark through the constant ‘burns’. The burns could remove tokens from circulation and pave way for SHIB to remain scarce.

When scarcity enters the SHIB fold, its price could automatically and sustainably scale up in the indices. This could make way for the 1 Cent Dream to turn into reality.

However, the scale of the ‘burns’ has not been revealed and the functionality of the in-built burn mechanism remains to be unknown.

Nonetheless, the team has confirmed that Shibarium will indeed burn SHIB tokens and help in reducing its circulating supply.

SHIB has a circulating supply of 549 trillion of which 50% is already sent to the dead wallets. The remaining half remains mammoth in size requiring a larger-than-life-sized burn to consider reaching the $0.01 milestone.

Shibarium layer-2 solution is the most anticipated development in the SHIB community as the network could scale up the token’s price sustainably.

The official handle of Shibarium confirmed the burn mechanism saying, “Shibarium Update. While on our last post we wanted to remind everyone that BONE serves as the required gas token for operability within Shibarium, we also would now like to formally announce that each Shibarium transaction will burn SHIB.”
