Amazon’s Impact Boosts Shiba Inu (SHIB) Burn Rate By 888%

Despite the fact that the crypto market has not printed a significant price surge in recent weeks, the Shiba Inu community continues to see reasons to burn more SHIB tokens. And the contribution of the Amazon burner also hit a significant level over the last 24 hours.

Amazon Burner Destroys 3 Billion SHIB Tokens

According to Travis Johnson, the game developer behind @shib_superstore Twitter handle, over the weekend, a total of 50,704,939 SHIB tokens worth $666 were burned via his Amazon affiliate program launched in October 2021.

As reported by Johnson, this has now brought the total number of SHIB burned at the portal to 1.1 billion tokens and all-time SHIB destroyed via the Amazon burner to about 2.9B SHIB.

This shows that Amazon considerably contributed to the massive increase in the number of tokens burned over the last 24 hours.

Travis Johnson tweeted, “Burn! 50.7M SHIB ($666) Bringing the total we have burned at the portal to 1.1B and all time to nearly 2.9B SHIB!”

This resulted from a higher amount of SHIB burned since Sunday morning (64,986,148 SHIB). A total of 50,704,939 were burned in a single transaction thanks to Amazon burner. Whereas, only 8,369,636 tokens were burned on Saturday, representing an 8x burn increase on Sunday.

It should be noted that only 272.2 million SHIB were sent to the dead wallets in September, which can be tagged as a poor performance compared to previous months.
