SHIB Burns Surge: Two Whales Transformed the Shiba Inu Market

The Shiba Inu community burned over 900 million SHIB tokens in June 2024, according to on-chain data from Shibburn, a community-driven burn tracker.

At the current exchange rate of $0.00001732, these tokens are valued at $15,901.

One notable burn involved a transfer of over 225 million SHIB to a dead wallet. An unknown user initiated this burn on June 11 in a single transaction. Another significant burn occurred on June 13 when popular community member 1c Dream burned 100 million SHIB. These major transactions, combined with 235 others from community members, pushed the total number of SHIB burned in June to 918,079,655.
