In a notable development, the Shiba Inu burn rate has ticked up in the past 24 hours as the meme coin’s community sends millions of SHIB tokens for incineration. 

Data from the Shiba Inu burn tracker Shibburn reveals that 146,261,497 SHIB tokens were sent to the burn addresses and taken out of circulation. Furthermore, the data showed five wallet addresses partook in the incineration. 

Notably, a particular wallet burned 100 million SHIB tokens in a single transaction. Another wallet also burned over 30 million tokens in the same 24 hours. As a result, the burn rate jumped 459.57% in the aforementioned period.
