Burned Crypto

What is Burned Crypto?

Burning occurs when cryptocurrency tokens or coins are purposefully removed from circulation and remain gone forever. The development team behind a specific cryptocurrency asset typically burns tokens. There are various ways to accomplish this, but the most popular one is by sending the coins to an "eater address." On the blockchain, its balance is openly accessible, but no one has access to its contents. The project's developers may engage in token burning by repurchasing tokens from the market or by burning a portion of the supply that is already in their possession. Although burning can be done for a variety of reasons, deflationary effects are the most common. The price of an item tends to rise as the amount in circulation declines, luring traders and investors to buy and sell.
