The SHIB Super Store brand burned over 595 million SHIB on March 17 using February's ad revenue from both its website and the Bricks Buster mobile game.

As shared in the Etherscan transaction, the SHIB burn of 595,232,837 Shiba Inu totalled $13,011. This is slightly more than the recorded revenue of $12,086.

This is the latest huge SHIB burns to take place in mid-March, albeit less controversial than previous burns.

Yet Another SHIB Burn From Gaming

After this burn, the total destroyed by Travis Johnson, owner and creator of the SHIB Super Store and Bricks Buster game, comes to 1.3 billion SHIB, or $37,369.

While this is some 180 million more SHIB than the last burn, this is a reflection of SHIB's dip in price, with the revenue being $431 more than the last month.

Most of the revenue comes from advertising on the Bricks Buster game. A proportion also comes from two other games created by Johnson, alongside revenue from the website, which sells Shiba-branded products.

Based on his projections, Johnson hopes to burn over $40,000 - or 1.5 billion SHIB - each month by October.

In a blog post after the burn, he said:

All this from a 'small game' called BricksBuster, or is it? I think all this is from the incredible power/support of the ShibArmy. The support and understanding from the army has been incredible, especially since we are also part of the community.

Looking to the next burn, Johnson posted on Twitter that the revenue is around “20% behind last month”.

This comes as the Shiba community remains excited about future burning projects within the ecosystem, through a burn portal.
