What's the deal with this "burn on deployment"? almost every deflationary token is bragging about the number of tokens they've burned before providing liquidity and isn't this useless?
For example, Alice buys the X token, then sends it to the burn address.
X price was raised because Alice bought the token, not because of her sending it to a dead address, it happened to avoid these tokens coming back to circulation.
In the same way, if there is no liquidity provided, so there is no trading happening, if Alice (X token deployer) just sends a certain amount of tokens to the dead address, this won't affect absolutely anything, because simply there is nothing to be affected apart from total supply.
So there is no difference between deploying then burning and just deploying without the amount that should have been burned.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
