Burning Tokens and unwanted NFTs

Hi everyone, I’m new to the platform. Here’s my bio.

I’ve noticed a few folks sending me tokens. While I appreciate the gesture, there are some items I simply don’t want in my collections. “Burning” tokens unfortunately costs ETH/Gas so it seems like a shame to spend your crypto to clean up your collection.

  1. Is there a way to do this for free?
  2. If not, feature request would be to allow owner of a collection to first “accept” a donation first before it’s automatically added.

Hi, Nice request feature. No it’s not free. Check gas fee for transferring Or you could transfer them to a new ethereum account, like a black hole account., once eth gas prices drop in the future. I sold a token for $48US someone gave me for free recently. :face_with_raised_eyebrow: Get rid of the ones that look like advertising. Check tokens history for prices first.


How do you burn these kinds of tokens? I have one that I don’t want in my collection. Someone sent it to me for free. Can’t find any reference guidance for how to find its address and get rid of it.

You could either burn it or add a new metamask account to metamask & transfer it there. It is cheaper to transfer it to another account. You will need to pay some eth fee . Click on the 3 dots to bring drop down menu. Or wait till july when eth fees should be really cheap. MAKE sure you have backed up your Original Metamask Password & Seed. also back up your Private Key Screenshot_7 Screenshot_8

Hello there is already a thread about this problem and for now, there is no protection against receiving unwanted tokens

And as you some people can see the solution in accepting the donated token first…

Some people send you a free nft if you buy an nft off them sometimes but it usually a useless garbage nft.
