Over the past few years, Shiba Inu has gained popularity and has developed a strong community known as the “SHIB army”. This growth has enabled Shiba Inu to become the second-largest meme coin.
The team behind Shiba Inu has been working on various projects, such as Shiba Eternity, SHIB Metaverse, and Shibarium. The burn mechanism has been a key focus of the SHIB developers.

The SHIB burn mechanism is implemented to transfer SHIB to inactive wallets and reduce the overall supply. This approach aims to create scarcity and potentially drive up the price of the token in the future. Although the burn rate is known to fluctuate, recent data from Shibburn indicates that it has decreased by -100%.
