Amazon proved to be SHIB “solid daily burner”
According to a recent tweet from @shib_superstore, the official Twitter account for Travis Johnson’s game store, Amazon has proven to be a successful SHIB burner on a day to day basis. The Shib Super Store has been incinerating meme tokens through an Amazon affiliate program for a few months now, destroying 426,621 to 4,212,299 SHIBs per day. However, the value of these seemingly huge amounts of tokens is only $5 and $50, respectively. Therefore, the maximum amount of SHIB that Amazon can destroy per month is 122,306,201 ($1,500). Overall, the SHIB consumption rate does not look good for the token price: over the past week, only 0.0002% of the circulating SHIB supply (1.13B tokens worth $13,500) was burned.
