A significant portion of it has since been removed from Ethereum over the past seven months. The EIP-1559 upgrade segregated the transaction fees on the network. It was earlier given to the miners in the form of base fee and tips. Now out of this the base fee is destroyed and the tip goes to the crypto miners.
The community has also been observing how many Ethers are being burned daily since the EIP 1559 upgrade on August 5 last year. Statistics show that 3.57 Ether is being destroyed every minute. The EIP-1559 upgrade changes the algorithm for base fees and eliminates base fees.

This major NFT market destroyed approximately 229,916 Ether in transfer of 14,635,232 ETH, which was valued at approximately $794,99,348.
