125 Million SHIB Burned In Past 5 Days

According to Etherscan, approximately fourteen transactions have been made to send a total of over 125 million SHIB tokens to a dead wallet from which nobody will ever be able to withdraw or spend them. The largest one carried 100,000,000 million SHIB, and it took place last week.

Recently, over twenty-four hours, 5.6 million tokens have been burned via six transfers, according to Twitter user @shibburn. The user reminded that out of the initial supply of 1 quadrillion, 410,300,521,864,319 SHIB has been taken out of circulation so far.

Per previous reports, the non-custodial platform NOWPayments processes crypto payments. It plans to add a feature through which merchants can burn SHIB tokens

According to senior currency strategist at IG Group subsidiary DailyFX, Christopher Vecchio, the 2022 year that has just begun is unlikely to be fortunate for meme cryptocurrencies, such as Dogecoin and its rival Shiba Inu.

In particular, as he put it, he would be very surprised to see these two coins rally and assumed that only Elon Musk would be able to save them by tweeting about these cryptocurrencies. Vecchio reckons that Doge, SHIB, and other meme coins will drop “deeper and deeper.” He is also bearish on Bitcoin, though, stating that the flagship crypto is facing “a crisis of faith” at the moment.

Shiba Inu Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Shiba Inu price chart, we see that SHIB faces strong resistance at around $0.000034. If the price is unable to move past this level and sellers retain control, we could see SHIB drop below $0.000030. However, if SHIB can break past the resistance, we could expect it to push to $0.000035.
