- On the counterpartytalk forums, there was a conversation about the ability to destroy XCP assets. If you try and send them to the very first XCP burn address, they will not send. Adam Krellenstien wieghed in on why you can’t send XCP assets to 1CounterpartyXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXUWLpVr:
- Yes, it is impossible to destroy the tokens in that way. The initial counterparty burn address is an invalid destination address to prevent accidental destruction of coins.
- Adam created a python script that can generate burn addresses for you. Also in the forums, JP Janseen provided a list of already generated burn addresses that you can send assets to instead to destroy them. You can find that list in the link in the show notes.
Asset of the Week:
- The token of the week is Storj. Shawn Wilkinson the Founder and CEO talks about the development stage of Storj Labs.
Coindaddy released a vending machine this week called Coinvend and they have two working examples of it, one being for GRUMPYCAT tokens. Coindaddy’s vending machine does work across Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Litecoin blockchains. This is another service that you can use to sell your Counterparty token easily to the public. You can create your own vending machine for any token you have registered on Coindaddy. Just login at Coindaddy.io to start creating your own vending machines today.
- As a reminder, Spells of Genesis is running their BITCRYSTALS crowd sale this upcoming Wednesday on Swarm so mark your calendars.
