Shiba Inu Leader Says Burning 99.9% of Shiba Inu is Not Impossible
3 Min Read

The lead developer of the Shiba Inu ecosystem has argued that eliminating 99.9% of Shiba Inu’s circulating supply is not impossible.

In a recent tweet, Shytoshi Kusama, the enigmatic leader of the Shiba Inu development team, expressed that bringing Shiba Inu’s current circulating supply to 0.1% of its size is a vision that can materialize.

This bold declaration comes amid an exchange with a Shiba Inu critic. The context of the conversation was Shibarium’s soaring positive metric, with transactions reaching new counts of 150 million.

Amid the development, the Shiba Inu critic sarcastically asked Kusama to burn 99.9% of SHIB tokens, likely with the fees accrued from Shibarium transactions. The critic went on to add that such a hypothetical scenario cannot be a reality because, according to him, Shiba Inu is trash.

Shiba Inu Lead Says Nothing is Impossible

However, the Shiba Inu ecosystem leader reacted to the critic’s view with a counterargument. Succinctly, Kusama said:

“Nothing is impossible except for you seeing how it’s possible. We push forward.”

With SHIB’s circulating supply at 580,925,715,095,591 (580 trillion), burning 99.9% would reduce Shiba Inu’s supply to 580 billion, which is still significant.

Reacting to Kusama’s statement, members of the Shiba Inu community welcomed the idea, noting that it merely takes patience to attain such a feat. Raul Valadez-Rayas, a U.S.-based Shiba Inu enthusiast, remarked:

“Patiently waiting for Shytoshi Kusama. Can’t wait to see trillions of SHIB burn one day, and then everyone in the SHIB ARMY will be happy.”

Shiba Inu Team’s Efforts to Burn SHIB

Notably, the Shiba Inu development team has orchestrated the third and fourth editions of its routine Shiba Inu token burn based on fees accumulated from Shibarium transactions. 

The Crypto Basic has reported that the team has incinerated over 17 billion SHIB tokens in the last 24 hours in two transactions. The first transaction, which occurred yesterday, eliminated 8.53 billion SHIB. Meanwhile, in less than 23 hours, another 8.47 billion SHIB was burnt.

As a result, the Shiba Inu team has burned a whopping 33,862,174,416 (33.8 billion) SHIB tokens this month alone.
