This process is considered an advanced one for new users and it is recommended to do your own research and educate yourself before doing so.

This education is useful though because the Counterparty Burn address that initially created the supply of XCP used this type of burn address. Learn more about the history of Counterparty and "Proof of Burn".

A significant amount of past and current projects on Counterparty have used burn addresses for many uses. Learn more about this process in this Counterparty Forum post.
