The Shibarmy continues to support the metaverse initiative that was revealed last year. The project’s Lands are selling quickly, alongside the tokens required for trading within the shib.io metaverse.
The most well-known meme coin, meanwhile, ends the year on a high note after increasing by +3.22% over the past 24 hours, pushing the coin’s price to €0.00000816. A respectable performance was achieved by the trend, which began shortly after New Year’s Eve and gave Shiba Inu a 7.33% increase in value in just 7 days.
Whales Accumulate Shiba Inu – Binance Now Largest Holder
A huge Shiba Inu transfer was recorded on the Ethereum blockchain, according to data from the cryptocurrency transaction tracker firm Whale Alert. This transaction involved the transfer of 3,373,256,285,000 SHIB, which was worth up to $28.7 million at the time of the transfer.
For this transaction, there were no known addresses for either the sending or the receiving parties. The sender of this transfer is almost certainly a whale because it entailed moving a sizable quantity of money.
Furthermore, according to data by etherscan.io, Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world, now has 83 trillion SHIB, or $738,549,274 ($738.54M), stored in two of its related wallets, designated “Binance 28” and “Binance 8” making it the largest holder of the token. In addition, Shiba Inu was named by Binance as the third-most-watched cryptocurrency for the year 2022, behind Ethereum and Bitcoin.
Shiba Inu Burning
According to the SHIB burn website, the Shiba Inu burn rate increased by more than 1390% in the previous 24 hours. The massive burn rate is connected to both the anticipated early 2019 launch of the Layer-2 blockchain system Shibarium and the whales’ comeback.
In the past 24 hours, 410,384,426 SHIB tokens have been burned altogether. The burn rate has increased by 1395.89% over the previous day.
Since there will be fewer tokens in circulation as a result of the mass burn, prices will increase. One transaction reveals the burning of 14,999,999 SHIB tokens in an effort to condense the supply of the meme cryptocurrency.
Why is SHIB Price Surging?
This recent burn has resulted in an almost 5% increase in SHIB. There were also noticeable gaps in the price of SHIB between its burn and its occurrence. SHIB was trading at $0.00000832 prior to the burn and then skyrocketed to approximately $0.00000900 following the burn. SHIB’s value could increase more than anticipated if there is greater demand than supply over time and more SHIB burned.
