We have minted and registered a native token on Cardano. Now we want to burn it, because of change of policy and remove it from the registry.

After burning the tokens how should I de-register, so that it does not appear in cardanoscan any more?

  • One solution, i can think of is this. I would remove the entry that was created during token registration in the repository:github.com/cardano-foundation/cardano-token-registry from the mapping/ directory. Would this remove the entry entirely from the registry ?

There are instructions on how to do it within the Cardano Registry documentation (https://developers.cardano.org/docs/native-tokens/token-registry/How-do-I-delete-my-entry-from-the-registry%3F)

These are:

Removing an entry from the registry is an ad-hoc process. If this was allowed without verification, anyone could delete anyone's metadata. The verification process is therefore identical to updating an entry, with the additional step of updating the value of the 'name' and 'description' fields to 'VOID' and explicitly mentioning in the title of your Pull Request that you would like the entry deleted.

If the Pull Request passes validation (meaning you have signed the submission with the required key/s), the maintainers of the registry will delete your entry.

Steps Update your entry by updating the value of the 'name' and 'description' fields to 'VOID'. Submit a pull request. Make sure to indicate in the title of your Pull Request that you would like the entry deleted.
