Be aware of burned supply coins
I’ve seen there is a bit of confusion on understanding why coins that are just deployed burn 50% or 99% of their supply. Some people say to increase scarcity. Sadly not, if they wanted a scarce coin they would have deployed it already with a low supply, so the answer is another: To hide their whales.
If i deploy a coin on BSC with 100m supply and burn 50% of it as soon as it’s deployed, and own 10m of it myself, my wallet will be listed as having 10% of the supply while i have actually 20% of it, since BSCscan keeps in account also the burn address in the whole supply pool.
If i deploy a 100m supply coin and hold 100k of it while burning 99% of the supply then my 100k will be listed as “only” 0.1% of the supply while i actually hold 10% of the circulating supply (the remaining 1 mil). And so on.
So beware of coins that burn their supply as soon as they are deployed.
