What is SHIB & LEASH burning?

SHIB and LEASH burning is a procedure which involves sending a certain sum of cryptocurrency to a crypto address that cannot be accessed by anyone or used in any way. The process is used in order to take the burnt sum out of the coin circulation. Crypto burning is a practice which is widely utilized by crypto enthusiasts, but the Shiba Inu community certainly took it to another level. NOWPayments respects Shiba Inu’s vision and is happy to contribute to the burn process.

Why burn SHIB and LEASH

Still, the question remains, ‘Why do people willingly decide to part with their coins?’ The answer is simple. By reducing the supply of coins in circulation, people try to boost the value of the asset. Here, a simple rule applies. When something gets scarce, the demand for it rises. As a result, as the supply of SHIB and LEASH coins goes down, their price is expected to increase. The Shiba Inu community members, thus, try to boost the value of their favorite coins.
