600 million SHIB to be burned on April 3
According to the data shared by Steven Cooper, owner of Bigger Entertainment (one of the most active shib burners), the next SHIB burn party has been scheduled for April 3. On that day, they intend to destroy 600 million meme tokens live on YouTube, i.e. send these tokens to a dead-end crypto address.
The previous burn party took place on February 14 – back then, more than 240 million SHIB was incinerated. The project has been destroying SHIB since the end of October 2021.
Since the project began its regular token burns, a staggering 1,414,967,476 SHIB has been removed from the circulating supply. The funds for these burn parties are raised by the company via its activity on YouTube, in the sphere of mobile games, music play lists, etc.
