This comes after a long stretch of calls for the team to introduce an automatic burn for SHIB as the Shibarium blockchain grows. However, contrary to the belief that the burn portal is exactly what is needed, the developer emphasized that “BURNS WILL NOT AND ARE NOT THE END ALL BE ALL.” Instead, the developer says that the focus should shift toward the adoption of the blockchain rather than being on just burns.
Onboarding millions of people to Shibarium will take time and community effort.
More information about burns will be revealed in the upcoming documentation.
The emphasis being placed on a burn mechanism by the community comes as a result of an expectation that lower supply leads to higher prices. While this is true for digital assets, there are other factors that contribute to a token reaching a new all-time high price.
SHIB’s price is currently sitting at $0.000007549 after falling 2.40% in the last day and 6.91% in the last week. It is the 16th-largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $4.44 billion.
