The development team also recently revealed how they plan to burn SHIB with the highly anticipated Shibarium layer-2 solution. Also, as Shibarium promised native support for NFT functionality, several platforms were launched in preparation for the layer-2 network. Notably, Pawzaar, an NFT marketplace, has announced that it will burn SHIB for every NFT transaction on its platform once Shibarium becomes available.

Notably, SHIB enthusiast David Gokhshtein recently stated that he will retire once the asset reaches $0.01.
