Shiba Inu SHIB/USD burn rate has spiked over 350% in the last 24 hours. This surge came after Kaal Dhairya, a prominent SHIB developer, shared details of the team’s intentions to renounce the BONE BONE/USD contract.
What Happened: Data from Shibburn, a platform that tracks the burning of SHIB tokens, indicates that a staggering 142 million SHIB coins were burned and permanently removed from circulation following the release of the developer’s plan.
Dhairya on Friday published a detailed blog post outlining the steps that the team intends to take in renouncing the BONE contract. However, Dhairya emphasized that these steps would require careful consideration and time. Due to the limited retries available on mainnet, the team must avoid any mistakes.
In the post, Dhairya said, “Before taking any actual steps toward the contract renouncement, everything has to be tested thoroughly multiple times so there are no losses.”
