Today there was one particularly large burn transaction that made waves on Twitter – an astonishing 85,682,280 SHIB tokens were set ablaze, setting a new record for largest burn transaction this year.
Upcoming Upgrades and Events
To regain momentum during this bearish time, the memecoin is trying to implement several highly-anticipated upgrades and events. Firstly, most of the community is waiting for Shibarium Public Beta to drop this week. Secondly, Shiba Inu’s metaverse project SHIB: The Metaverse will be featured in the upcoming SXSW Experience in Austin Texas.
