Earlier this week, Cooper tweeted that his team would burn one billion SHIB tokens on 13th December if 7,500 SHIB holders spent $5 at Bigger Entertainment to buy a ticket to the “burn party”. On Monday, 13th December, the raised amount of funds was 13% of the total sum.
Cooper also tweeted that in December so far his team had burned 7 million SHIB. According to etherscan, 7,039,297.46717959 SHIB tokens were sent to a null address 0xdead000000000000000042069420694206942069.
Earlier today, slightly over 2 million SHIB was sent to this address, i.e. burned, as well. When coins are burned, they are taken out of circulation permanently. It often contributes to the rise of the coin’s price. Howbeit, despite getting 2 billion SHIB burned in November by the community, the token keeps trading around $0.000032.
