553 million SHIB on move
The largest SHIB lump here contained around two-thirds of the whole amount — 405 million Shiba Inu. It was moved from the Binance exchange to an anonymous wallet. A total of 100 million SHIB was transferred from a SHIB contract to a wallet on the OpenSea NFT marketplace.
The Arkham tracker also reported that 111,000 Shiba Inu were moved from Coinbase to a dead wallet.
SHIB burn progress
Shibburn tracker has published fresh data shared by Etherscan, which shows that within the last 24 hours, 35,342,371 Shiba Inu coins have been sent to dead addresses, which are unspendable and no tokens can be withdrawn from them. This automatically means that the tokens locked there go out of circulation and reduce the supply that circulates in the market.
The biggest chunk here carried almost half of the total amount of the 35 million, 16,901,258 SHIB.
