To the Fire
Popular memecoin, Baby Doge Coin, has burned 4.8 Quadrillion tokens. According to the Binance Smart Chain block explorer Bscscan, the burn took place at 22.08 UTC on February 1 and was worth a hefty $18.7 million at the time.
Baby Doge Coin conducts regular burns on the first day of each new month. Burning of tokens is a common practice of memecoins and has a dual target: reduce total supply and boost market value. Baby Doge announced its latest burn via Twitter,
Baby Doge Coin began its memecoin life with a massive total supply of 420 Quadrillion tokens. A combination of monthly burns and daily burns from Baby Doge Coin’s inbuilt deflationary mechanism has burned 180 Quadrillion tokens, about 42.5% of the initial total.
The latest burn of 4.8 Quadrillion – about 1% of the initial supply, leaves 240 Quadrillion in circulation, according to WhaleWatcher, which is nonetheless a colossal supply. A section of the Baby Doge community continues to clamour for more significant burns to reduce the token’s supply to a level they believe will make it more valuable.
