The meme coin currently under the spotlight for its token-burning campaign hit a new burn rate high this Monday. Shiba Inu, the dog crypto, burned close to 200 million coins within the last 24 hours. According to SHIB Burn data, the burn rate of Shib tokens has spiked by about 3000% in the space of 1 day. 

Furthermore, most of the tokens sent to Shiba Inu’s burn wallet are from individual whale accounts. This burn initiative has taken off big since the beginning of this month. More than 500 million tokens went out of circulation in the first week. At this rate, it is possible the burn rate might hit 5000% in a few days.

Whale Accounts Invest Massively In Shiba Inu

Even as the Shiba Inu tokens burn rate skyrockets, the token is drawing massive investments from individual whale accounts. Last weekend, two whales took up positions worth millions in the Shiba Inu ecosystem.

The first one bought 702 billion SHIB coins costing close to a whopping $8.7 million. Another whale, in a first-time transaction, purchased 541 billion tokens worth almost $7 million, according to Ethescan.io data. Nonetheless, the newest whale on Shiba Inu continues to be anonymous, one of the benefits of decentralized finance.

Will The Increased Burn Rate Have Any Effect On SHIB Price?

As the number of tokens burned on the Shiba Inu protocol spikes, will it positively affect the price of SHIB tokens? This question remains on many minds as millions of SHIB tokens continue to go out of circulation.

SHIB is currently trading at $0.00001233 after briefly dipping to 0.00001198 yesterday. The coin is doing quite well for itself amid the general crypto bear market, up about 93% in 1 year. It had hit an unprecedented all-time high of $0.00004217 close to the end of October 2021. However, it continued to drop amid general market volatility coming to rest at its current price. It is unclear if the increase in token burning will push the token any closer to its October 2021 peak.

Shiba Inu Grows Closer to Its Trillion Token Burn Benchmark

This recent burn benchmark brings the meme coin protocol closer to its goal of burning trillions of tokens. It will be an integral part of the launch of ShibaSwap 2.0 and the anticipated Shibarium Layer 2. As it stands, Shiba Inu devs are continually seeking innovative options to burn the tokens.

Finally, the dog token still has a lot of challenges to overcome in the coming days if its price is to climb. The soaring inflation, coupled with the scheduled CPI report release and next week’s FOMC meeting, is also part of it. In fact, SHIB’s price may plateau or even dip in the coming days despite the massive amount of coins burned.

  • Dapper’s Flow blockchain will manufacture NFT collectibles based on video highlights.
  • The partnership between Dapper and LaLiga was initially announced in September 2021.

Dapper Labs’ LaLiga-themed NFT platform will enter closed beta later this month, following in the footsteps of NBA Top Shot and NFL All Day.

Starting on October 27th, a curated user base will have access to LaLiga Golazos, a digital marketplace where the first pack will be released. Over the course of many months, both Top Shot and All Day conducted closed beta testing with a growing number of users before releasing to the general public.

To compete with other similar sports services, Dapper’s Flow blockchain will manufacture NFT collectibles based on video highlights from LaLiga Golazos games, which will subsequently be sold and exchanged like trading cards.

Spectacular Goal 

The partnership between Dapper and LaLiga was initially announced in September 2021, and the platform was supposed to launch this past summer.

Bilingual NFTs with play-by-play commentary, player performance information, and match statistics will be sold by LaLiga Golazos (“golazos” meaning “spectacular goal” in Spanish). This is the first NFT product that provide multilingual support from Dapper. The era of the league covered by the platform’s collectibles extends all the way back to 2005.

El Clásico (FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid CF), the Madrid Derby (Real Madrid CF vs. Atlético de Madrid), the Basque Derby (Real Sociedad vs. Athletic Club), and El Gran Derbi (Real Betis vs Sevilla FC) are just a few of the LaLiga rivalries whose moments will be featured in the first digital pack of NFT collectibles, set to release on October 27. 

Promoting the LaLiga Golazos launch are players such as FC Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and Marc-André ter Stegen, and Atlético de Madrid’s Joao Félix and Luka Modri.
