54.6 million Shiba Inu tokens burnt overnight

The burn rate of the Shiba-Inu-themed meme coin took a hit after the turn of events on May 29. In the last 24 hours, merely 54.6 million SHIB tokens were burnt. The burn rate has dropped by 64.2% overnight.

A drop in burn rate is associated with a slow reduction of the token's circulating supply, delaying the bullish impact of shrinking SHIB circulation on its price. 410.46 trillion Shiba Inu tokens have been burnt so far, effectively reducing SHIB supply considerably. 

Experts at Finder believe Shiba Inu could face same fate as Terra

According to a report by cryptocurrency experts at Finder, a comparison website, Shiba Inu could crash, similar to Terraform Labs' LUNA (now Luna Classic-LUNC) and TerraUSD (UST). The report featured the opinions of 36 cryptocurrency experts and was initially published in May 2022. 

Among meme coins in the crypto ecosystem, Shiba Inu is one of the hardest-hit cryptocurrencies, and experts believe there are several threats surrounding the Dogecoin-killer

According to crypto experts, Shiba Inu is in the same category as LUNA, and the project has no real use cases. The lack of usability implies Shiba Inu relies on hype and not its real product. While Shiba Inu does not feature a stablecoin in its project, unlike Terra with its algorithmic stablecoin UST, there is one under-development. 

Shiba Inu's stablecoin will be pegged to $0.01, unlike UST's $1 peg. Founder Ryoshi believed that this would make Shiba Inu's stablecoin more stable than algorithmic stablecoins in the ecosystem. The project is currently "nearing completion," and details on how the peg will be maintained are yet to be released. 

Shiba Inu price eyes $0.000014 target

Analysts at FXStreet have evaluated the Shiba Inu price trend and set a bullish $0.000014 target for the meme coin. Analysts note that there is a lack of liquidity in Shiba Inu, when compared to altcoins in the crypto ecosystem, and the upside is capped at $0.0000128. However, a climb to $0.000014 is likely if the Shiba Inu price sustained its uptrend.
