Shiba Inu token burn intensifies, 22 billion SHIB burned

Shiba Inu burn has intensified with the recent 22 billion SHIB destruction over 497 transactions. Based on data from the Shiba Inu burn portal, a total of 410.36 trillion SHIB tokens have been burned. This represents over 41% of Shiba Inu’s total supply. 

The rapid burn of Shiba Inu pulls the burnt tokens out of circulation and reduces the meme coin’s supply. A drop in supply across exchanges is expected to push prices higher. 

Over the past 24 hours, the Shiba Inu burn rate, an indicator used to identify the speed at which the meme coin is being burnt, has increased by 61.46%.

Shiba Inu price could break out with this bullish signal

Analysts have evaluated the Shiba Inu price trend and predicted a recovery in the meme coin’s price. Crispus Nyaga, a crypto analyst, noted that the four-hour price chart indicates that Shiba Inu has been in the consolidation phase for the past few days. 

Shiba Inu has found support at $0.000011 and the meme coin has climbed higher since then. Nyaga argues that Shiba Inu price has sustained above a descending trend line, and it could continue its climb. The analyst has a bullish outlook on Shiba Inu and predicted a continuation of the Dogecoin-killer’s uptrend.
