How to delete or destroy an asset

+2 votes
I have a case where I created an incorrect asset and I need to remove it from the blockchain. I thought issuing the asset to the burn address would do this but seems this can only issue singular units from the asset to the burn address. How would I achieve this?

Once all units are depleted on a closed asset, the asset is effectively inactive and with all units sent to burn address there is nothing that can be done with that asset.

Perhaps listassets and checking balances > 0 = activeassets

You can also use importaddress with the chain's burn address to keep track of its balance.
