What is it about Coin Burn?
In a layman's point of view, burning of coins is done for the following reasons:
Since the 300 Million Banano (BAN) were already burned, new coins will now be available coming from the total supply and will be added to the circulating supply. Some developers are rewarding token holders with additional tokens for holding the coins but the main reason coins are being burned after initial coin offering, the unused or unsold tokens should be destroyed to get started with the exchange.
In my own point of view as an experienced crypto-enthusiast without the technical expertise, coins are being burnt so that the value of the coin will rise since there have already been a community using the coin and burning the coins would make it more rare, therefore the demand would still be the same for current users but the circulating supply will then be limited. Thus, there would be scarcity and the price of the coin will be higher.
I have also seen in the blockchain where 13 BTC was burned as well. I have seen this blockchain transaction on my very own eyes. Looking back and sharing this to everyone. I have searched for it again.
It shows that the BTC address is customized and starts with
1BitcoinEaterAddressDontSendXXXX which shows 13 BTC balance.
It shows here some active BTC wallet addresses for Bitcoin burning.
Proof-of-burn is a method for distributed consensus and an alternative to proof-of-work and proof-of-stake. It can also be used to bootstrap one cryptocurrency off of another.
The idea is that miners/participants should show proof that they burnt some coins i.e., sent them to a verifiably unspendable address. This is expensive from an individual point of view, just like proof-of-work, but it consumes no resources other than the burnt underlying asset.
To date, all proof-of-burn cryptocurrencies work by burning proof-of-work-mined cryptocurrencies, so the ultimate source of scarcity remains the proof-of-work-mined “fuel”.

It would also be clear to us if we'll get to see the 7th Binance coin burn last April 15, 2019 where the top exchanger destroyed 829,888 BNB amounting to $15.6 Million USDollars at the time of posting. Check the post here: 7th Binance Coin Burning
