How did my tokens disappear? GoPlus Security explains the new token risk of “Contract Self-Destruction”!

1. Definition

First, let’s define what self-destruction is. Contract self-destruction simply means that the contract can be destroyed. And after the destruction, the contract and the assets corresponding to the contract will no longer exist.

2. Implementation method

Let’s take this disappeared Token as an example to see how to implement this function, the Token contract address is 0xB8c9817F1d9F473B974FF96F2D102D049B6EDAb1.

See a self-destruct function in this contract

3. How to avoid self-destruction tokens?

We recommend that users check the source contract code and see if there is a self-destructing feature associated with it before buying if they have a dev background or know how to code.
