Shiba Inu’s March burn achieves 23.3x monthly rate increase


  • The Shiba Inu community burned over 15 billion SHIB tokens in March, marking a significant increase in the monthly burn rate.
  • The largest contribution to March’s burn came from the Shiba Inu ecosystem team, with two transactions totaling 13.4 billion SHIB tokens.
  • March’s burn figures contrast sharply with previous months, indicating a resurgence in token burns.

The Shiba Inu community burnt over 15 billion SHIB tokens in March. This accomplishment was 23.3 times the jump in the monthly burn rate of the token. Shibburn data reveals that, in total, 15,644,329,668 SHIB tokens were burned through 217 transactions. This trend of activity reflects the community’s commitment to reducing the token’s supply and, consequently, increasing its value.

The largest contribution to this month’s burn came on March 9, with two transactions totaling 13.4 billion SHIB tokens sent to a dead wallet. These transactions were carried out by the Shiba Inu ecosystem team, utilizing a portion of the Shibarium gas fees. Other notable burns included contributions from various community members, ranging from thousands to millions of SHIB tokens. This collective effort signifies a strong community drive towards the token’s deflationary mechanism.

January to March: Shiba Inu burn trends

March’s burn figures contrast sharply with those of the previous months, highlighting a significant resurgence in token burns. In February, the community burned 643,656,418 SHIB tokens, a figure dwarfed by March’s achievements. The decrease in February’s burn activities can be attributed to the absence of Shibarium-powered burns, which had a notable impact on the monthly total. Conversely, January saw a total of 9,937,949,070 SHIB tokens removed from circulation, demonstrating the fluctuating nature of community engagement in token burns.

This trend of varying burn rates points to the impact of strategic initiatives on Shiba Inu’s ecosystem. The Shibarium gas fees, in particular, have played a pivotal role in facilitating significant burn transactions. These efforts align with the community’s broader goals to reduce supply and potentially enhance the token’s market value.

April burns to signal the promising start

The intensive burn campaign in March coincided with a notable 145.2% increase in SHIB’s price. However, despite this impressive gain, Shiba Inu experienced a 1.2% decline over the past 30 days. This recent dip reflects the market’s corrections since the start of April. Nevertheless, the first three days of April have already seen over 160 million SHIB tokens burned, indicating a promising start to the month’s burn initiatives.

The cumulative effect of these burns in the first quarter of the year has led to the removal of 26,225,935,156 SHIB tokens from circulation. This sustained effort by the Shiba Inu community not only highlights their dedication to the token’s deflationary mechanism but also sets a positive outlook for future burns. As the community continues to rally behind these initiatives, the potential for further reducing the token’s supply remains high, which could, in turn, influence its market performance.
