Burning tokens is the destruction of a certain number of digital coins to reduce their emission. This method is used to combat inflation and increase the value of cryptocurrencies. All token burn operations are recorded on the blockchain as a transaction. Therefore, anyone can verify that the coins have been destroyed.
On December 24, the Shiba Inu token is trading at $ 0.000038, and its capitalization is $ 21.2 billion, according to CoinGecko. Over the week, altcoin has risen in price by 17%. At the end of October, the “meme” token renewed its all-time high above $ 0.000086. Since then, its value has dropped by 56%.
