The largest burn of 19,400,000 in the past 24 hours was by wallet address 0x463…758. Etherscan data revealed that the wallet address is linked to crypto-currency exchange Crypto.com, which burned more than 19 million SHIB on February 7 at 16:00 UTC.
The early launch of Shibarium, Shiba Inu’s Tier 2 blockchain solution, has led to a drop in the number of SHIBs burned in recent days. Investors are holding on to their SHIB tokens as lead developer Shytoshi Kusama hinted that the beta version of Shibarium would be launched on Valentine’s Day.
However, the Unification team working on Shibarium revealed in its developer update that the launch of Shibarium may be delayed. The community expects a launch in the first quarter of this year.
Shibarium will burn SHIB with every transaction. In addition, trillions of Shiba Inu will be burned and removed from circulation forever.
The price of Shiba Inu will reach 1 dollar?
The Shiba Inu community predicts that the launch of the Shibarium beta could propel prices to $1 this year. However, experts believe that $0.01 is still possible, but that $1 is a completely impossible goal to reach this year.
The price of SHIB has jumped nearly 2% in the past 24 hours, with the price currently trading at $0.00001423. The 24-hour low and high are $0.00001387 and $0.00001448 respectively.
Meanwhile, Shibarium’s gas token, BONE, is trading at $1.82, up nearly 2% from a 24-hour low of $1.75.
