In the last 24 hours, the second most popular meme coin SHIB has managed to push its price up 6.12%, now trading at $0.00001126 on the Binance exchange.
Earlier this week, large amounts of SHIB have been burned too, making up around 2 billion in the past week. The burning activity within the SHIB army began to increase after the launch of Puppynet (Shibarium beta testnet) on March 11.
The testnet has already been setting milestones — close to 4,000 transactions have been finalized, and 411,421 blocks have been formed in total. Nearly 3,000 wallets have taken part in those transactions and each of those transfers contributed to the increased SHIB burn rate.
