According to the Shibburn Twitter account, over 563,864,006 SHIB (563 million) tokens have been burned in the last seven days in over 54 transactions. This remains a small amount compared to past months, when over 1 billion SHIB was burned in a week.

According to SHIB BPP, a Shiba Inu community-focused Twitter account, a meager 1,743,878,414 (1.7 billion) SHIB were burned in September.
In the last 24 hours, Shibburn reports that there have been a total of 57,303,824 SHIB tokens burned in five transactions. Recent hours have seen transactions carrying SHIB being burned, 10,010,085 SHIB being transferred to dead wallets was reported by the Shibburn tracker. Also, 999,265 SHIB tokens were burned in a single transaction.
Despite the number of SHIB tokens sent to dead wallets in recent hours, the Shiba Inu burn rate remains down by 73.92% at press time.
This comes as burning tokens through the Shibburn initiative is not as it used to be. Recent days in the past week have shown a small amount of SHIB burned, as low as 6 million SHIB. This, however, might not imply a drop in interest in burning SHIB.
I want to talk about $SHIB, but you already know about them burning and the eco-system.
