How to burn ERC20 Tokens


We have an ICO running however we have a rather large supply of ERC20 tokens. I would like to burn some to reduce the overall supply.

Having read up on this, I have found articles relating to Bitcoin whereby one would send tokens to a RIPEMD160/SHA256 hash however I am unclear of how this process works on the Ethereum network.

Any assistance would be appreciated!


For anyone else looking to do this, you can send the tokens you want to burn to the following NULL ETH address: 0x00000000000000000000000000000000000000000
