While we remain cautiously optimistic regarding the prospects of this budding rally, Shiba Inu's SHIB coin is receiving a further boost from a conglomeration of intrinsic bullish factors.

As we've noted previously (read here), Bigger Entertainment is one of the nine different entities that have promised to periodically burn SHIB supply. But unlike its other counterparts, Bigger Entertainment has formalized its supply burn initiatives via a 2022 roadmap. As a part of these efforts, the company has now unveiled "SHIB Lovers' Merch," which will entail plowing 80 percent of the sale proceeds that the company receives by Valentine's Day into Shiba Inu's SHIB token. These tokens will then be burnt at a dedicated event on the 14th of February:

Bigger Entertainment will also host a Football-focused SuperBurn event in February and NFT Madness event in March – April. While detailing the rationale behind these events, Bigger Entertainment's CEO, Steven Cooper, recently stated that the company's goal was to pump Shiba Inu's SHIB token to a 1-cent price or $0.01:

Meanwhile, ShibSwag is another initiative that retails merch items online and promises to plough 30 percent of its profits into SHIB coin burn schemes.

While these initiatives are a testament to the vibrancy of the entire Shiba Inu community, the prospects of placing a sizable dent on the token's overall supply remain challenging. After all, the SHIB coin still entails a circulating supply of over 549 trillion tokens!

Meanwhile, Shiba Inu bulls remain focused on the upcoming Shiba Inu metaverse platform, dubbed Shiberse. Moreover, Shiba Inu Games – an entirely new division – is focused on creating a video game primarily geared toward Android and iOS mobile platforms. Once fully developed, the game would be licensed to the project's developers for use on Shibarium, the native blockchain that is powered by the SHIB token. Crucially, the revenue derived from the game's in-app purchases will be used, in part, to burn SHIB and LEASH coins.
