SHIB’s Price Struggles in June, Burn Rate Declines

In June, SHIB’s price lost over 10% of its value due to the uncertainty that faced the crypto industry. During the period, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed lawsuits against major crypto exchanges Binance and Coinbase.

While a wave of spot Bitcoin ETF applications from traditional financial institutions returned positive sentiments to the market, that was not enough to prevent the popular meme coin from losing around $1 billion of its market cap. According to BeInCrypto data, SHIB is trading at $0.0000076 as of press time after rising by over 5% in the last 24 hours.

During the last 24 hours, Shiba Inu’s burn rate remained very low, dropping by 35.5% to 7.75 million, while its weekly burn rate fell by 38.8%.
