By destroying SHIB tokens, users permanently remove them from the circulating supply

Shiba Inu’s recently launched burn portal continues to gain immense traction barely 48 hours after launch. In the first 24 hours after its launch, the official SHIB Twitter handle had reported a whopping eight billion tokens being burned as SHIB owners burned their tokens en masse.

Presently, reports indicate that more than 15 billion SHIB tokens have been burned since the portal started operations on Sunday. By destroying SHIB tokens, users permanently remove them from the circulating supply by transferring them to a burn address. In this way, it is possible to make the token a little more scarce, which could potentially boost the token’s price.

Shiba Inu also announced that any project can use the Shiba Burn Smart Contract to create a “BURN Pool” and to offer rewards for burning SHIB tokens, thus opening up users and projects associated with SHIB burns to benefit.
