Shiba Inu Burn Rate Spikes Over 110% After Lead Developer Says Shibarium 'Nearly Complete' — Can $10 Worth Of SHIB Turn You Into A Meme Coin Millionaire Today?

Self-proclaimed Dogecoin DOGE/USD killer Shiba Inu's SHIB/USD burn rate is up 110% in the last 24 hours, in anticipation of the launch of much-anticipated layer-2 solution Shibarium.

What Happened: Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer behind the Shiba Inu ecosystem said that Shibarium is "nearly complete."

"Now that Shibarium is nearly complete, and our full structure placed at the feet of the world, we couldn't ask for a better partner to help shepherd this next phase of the Shiba global phenomenon," the developer said.

Shibburn, the burning mechanism within the Shiba Inu ecosystem, reported a staggering transfer of 216 million SHIB tokens into “inferno” wallets within the past 24 hours. This strategic removal of tokens from circulation is intended to increase scarcity and potentially elevate the value of the remaining tokens.
