Burning is simply the process of sending tokens to a dead address. The burn portal is meant to make the process of removing tokens from circulation more organized.

It was launched in partnership with decentralized finance project Ryoshi’s Vision (RYOSHI) last week. Apart from potentially boosting the price of the token by permanently reducing its circulating supply, the holders of Shiba Inu will also be able to receive RYOSHI tokens in exchange for burntSHIB tokens. Shiba Inu started with a maximum supply of one quadrillion tokens.

Ryoshi, the tokens’ pseudonymous creator, gifted half of the supply to vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum.

In may, Buiterin decided to donate 50 trillion SHIB tokens to a pandemic-focused relief fund.

Within the same month, Buterin burned a whopping 410 trillion tokens, boosting the price of the token.

Presently, there are 549 trillion SHIB tokens in circulation.

Despite the community’s efforts to burn the token, its price remains under pressure. It is down 73.59% from its October high, currently trading at $0.00002262 on major spot exchanges.

Shiba Inu remains the 15th biggest token by market capitalization ( one spot below rival Dogecoin ).
