  • SHIB outperforms WBTC, whales buy more Shiba Inu

WhaleStats on-chain data tracker has reported that the Shiba Inu mem coin has outperformed Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) over the past 24 hours to become the most traded digital asset for the top 100 Ethereum whales.

This coincided with the SHIB Army significantly increasing the burn rate of their favorite canine token.

SHIB burn rate increases by 5,761%

According to data released today by tracking website Shibburn, over the past 24 hours, the rate at which the SHIB army is dumping meme coins and locking them up in non-consumable wallets has increased by a whopping 5,761%.

This time, as of yesterday morning, various entities and eager individuals have removed 13,696,795 Shiba Inu tokens.

The goal of burning (i.e. moving coins into dead-end wallets) is to reduce a coin’s circulation quantity to a level that ensures its price rise, as burning makes a cryptocurrency more scarce. Getting the SHIB price down to a dollar or at least a cent is the dream of the Shiba Inu community.
