Is there a way to manually burn ETH tokens with Manifold?

Hey there,

I’m almost done designing a special token on ETH using manifold that I’m hoping to allow collectors to burn for a BTC ordinal.

I’m guessing the only way to do this is by manually burning the ETH token, and then manually sending the BTC ordinal to the collectors that burned?

Is this possible? Or is there anything in the works from the Manifold team to allow creators to do something along these lines?

Looking forward to some answers.

Yes, I believe manually burning the tokens would be the best path forward.

There are two methods of burning

  1. Burning the token from the contract - this removes the token form existence
  2. Sending the token to 0x0000…dead - this keeps a history of the token but sends it to the dead address

Thanks Richerd for the simple explanations.
Sounds pretty straightforward, and I can’t wait to share with you all what I’m cooking :heart_on_fire:
