Firstly, let’s give a brief introduction of what token burn is all about. This will help you understand and appreciate the EDCOIN token burn process.
So what is a token burn?
Coin burning is the process of permanently removing coins from circulation, thus reducing the total supply. It happens by sending a number of tokens to a wallet address — commonly referred to as the “black hole” — where the private keys are unobtainable by anyone. This process makes the tokens unusable forever and it cannot be undone.
Why are we burning our precious EDCOIN?
Token burns help keep the token value at a healthy level and importantly embrace the importance of scarcity as the supply of the tokens in circulation is reduced.
Economic principles have proven that this is an effective method and it’s a reinforcement of the project’s passionate desire for growth.
