Pundi X Removes 9.7 Bln Tokens From Circulation

Billions of tokens being burned

Pundi X initially revealed that he would make an announcement regarding the token burn on Jan. 3 during his recent AMA that took place on Dec. 28.

Pundi X will burn about 5.7 bln tokens, which equals about $2.8 mln at press time. Topped off with 4 bln NPXSXEM ($1.4 mln), the number of coins that are getting burned totals up to $9.7 bln.  

Zac Cheah, the CEO of Pundi X, claims that the past two months have been a bear market, and the significant portion of the token burn will come from their own company. For the sake of transparency, they’ve recently revealed the founder’s and the manager’s addresses.    

In its Medium blog post, the company also claimed that they had burned approximately 10.2 bln tokens in 2018.

The reception of the community

The Pundi X community (or Pundians) were seemingly excited about the token burn, going as far as calling it the best news they’ve heard these holidays.

However, there were also those who took the token burn with a grain of salt. According to Pundi X critics, this is just another way to scam them.

Currently, the project’s native token NPXS is sitting at 55th place on CMC. Pundi X made a lot of headlines last December after launching one of the first Blockchain smartphones but the project remained pretty much anemic ever since.

As mentioned above, the token burn could increase the price of those NPXS tokens that are already in circulation given that there would be more demand in the market.
