What’s up with BONE?
The more the media field around Shiba Inu gets filled with news and rumors about Shibarium, the long-awaited Layer 2 ecosystem protocol, the more frequent the BONE price fluctuations become. The culprit of these phenomena is the BONE tokenomics, where only 70% of the total supply of 230 million BONEs is in circulation.
BONE currently has a market capitalization of $131.5 million, and the number of its holders, including Ethereum whales, is 64,166 addresses. Meanwhile, according to Etherscan, 17.96% of BONE’s total supply is concentrated on a single address, which also contains a small number of LEASH and SHIB, other tokens of the Shiba Inu ecosystem.
