Do not attempt to burn suspicious NFTs that appeared in your wallet and may have passed our spam
filter. They can sometimes have malicious logic in their
transferFrom function that can result
in you unwittingly signing over control of other assets and losing them instantly. It is a common
form of blockchain phishing scam, and these NFTs should just be ignored.
This feature utilizes the NFT's smart contract to transfer your asset to a burn address (opens in a new tab). This feature effectively allows you to "throw away" your NFT and remove it from your wallet. Once you burn an asset, it is lost forever. From that point forward, no one controls it and it cannot be transferred back out, making it effectively removed from the circulating supply.
