1.4 billion SHIB incinerated
@shibburn crypto tracker has published a tweet summarizing the amount of SHIB burnt over the past seven days by various teams and individuals within the token’s community.
Since last Monday, the tweet says, a staggering 1.2 billion Shiba Inu have been sent to dead-end addresses, from which SHIB cannot be moved to another wallet or spent on payments.
It took 84 transfers to remove that many SHIB from circulation. The same Twitter account added that earlier today, a total of 158,983,868 Shiba Inu were burned in a single transaction.

328 million SHIB destroyed during burn party
From the aforementioned 1.2 billion SHIB, on Friday, a record 328,089,390 tokens were moved to an “inferno” wallet in a single transaction during a monthly burn event organized by the Travis Johnson SHIB Burn Games Twitter account.
The company (“Super Shib Store” on Twitter) produces games, sells SHIB-themed goods, and uses a portion of their profits from ads and sales to buy Shiba Inu for burning.
Burn events organized by this company take place on the 15th of each month.
