Another 2.5 Million SHIB Burned With Over 3 Billion SHIB Destroyed In December: Details
The owner of the Bigger Entertainment crypto label, Steven Cooper, recently announced that his project team has burned 2.5 million SHIB tokens, while 1.5 million SHIB are waiting to be taken out of circulation too.
"Another 2.5 Million #shib burned + 1.5 million in playlist additions. Bringing our total burned to 884,983,100 SHIB since launching our campaign on Oct. 20th. We still have some big announcements coming."
A few days ago, the project conducted a scheduled "burn party," during which it sent 239,600,144 coins to a null address. This large amount, together with the 2.5 million, sum up to 884,983,100 SHIB eliminated by the project since October.
The head of the project has promised more big announcements about future SHIB burns to appear on his Twitter page soon. Per previous reports, December was "rich" in burned SHIB tokens. According to a tweet by a SHIB-dedicated Twitter user "SHIBtyme," the SHIB community has eliminated 1,943,391,652 tokens in the month.
Together with the aforementioned 242.5 million, 370.4 million SHIB were burned by the SHIB community on December 26-27, and 706 million were incinerated on December 23, according to the data provided by Etherscan. All of it together makes up another 1.3 billion.
Shiba Inu Holds Largest Token Position as Uniswap Replaces MATIC As Most Traded Token by Whales
According to WhaleStats data, Shiba Inu is the biggest token position by dollar value in the top 1,000 Ethereum wallets and the second-largest holding after ETH. Uniswap recently reclaimed the top spot as the most traded asset among Ethereum whales, or the 1,000 largest addresses on WhaleStats, overthrowing MATIC, which recently held the position.
In addition, UNI remains the most widely held token, which means that almost every large wallet holds at least one UNI coin. Despite this, MATIC remains among the top 10 holdings in whale-tier wallets on Ethereum, with the largest addresses with more than $100 million worth of tokens.
During an announcement-filled ask-me-anything session on Twitter Spaces, Queenie, a moderator of the official Shiba Inu Discord channel, teased a big surprise in 2022 without going into further details:
"We do have a big surprise when we enter 2022. So, that's going to be the last little tidbit that I drop."
Steven Cooper, CEO of Bigger Entertainment, shared the news that $100,000 in SHIB will be burned while building MixDraft, a blockchain music game.
