# What is token burning?

Token burning is the process of permanently removing tokens from circulation, reducing the total supply. Burning tokens can be done in several ways, most commonly by sending tokens to a so-called "eater address" or "dead address." The "dead address" balance is publicly visible on the blockchain. Still, access to its tokens is unavailable to anyone.

# Why is token burning important?

  • Increase the value of the token
    • Increasing the token price is probably the most well-known benefit of a token burn. Token burn reduces the overall circulation. Thereby the overall supply decreases. It might potentially increase the token value. The constant burning of the coin helps to keep a steady price.
