Thus, overall, 410,300,588,013,001 of these meme tokens have been burned. That is 41.03006% of the overall 1 quadriallion supply of SHIB. Almost all of it was burned by Vitalik Buterin after he was presented with half of the quadrillion.
He burned approximately 40% of his half of the SHIB supply, which was given to him by the SHIB founder. He donated the rest to an Indian charity to help fight the aftermath of the pandemic that is striding all over the globe at the moment, with new variants constantly emerging.

Here's how music artists help burn Shiba Inu
The Bigger Entertainment project that sells music-related merch and NFTs for crypto and allows consumers to listen to music playlists on its website conducts regular Shiba Inu burns. On Dec. 26, they sent 239,600,144 SHIB to a wallet from which it cannot be spent. Overall, since late October 2021, the project team has destroyed a total of 884,983,100 coins.
The owner of the service, Steven Cooper, has explained how the mechanism of collecting SHIB for these burn parties works.
To contribute to that, users just need to listen to the music on the project's website. All of the artists that collaborate with Bigger Entertainment allow the team to spend a portion of their royalties on buying SHIB, which later on will be burned.
You simply listen to our labels music. :) All of the artists we work with donate a portion of their royalties for us to buy shib and then burn it.— Steven Cooper (@iamstevencooper) January 4, 2022
