Burn a token
Burns fungible and non-fungible tokens owned by the Treasury Account. If no Supply Key is defined, the transaction will resolve to TOKEN_HAS_NO_SUPPLY_KEY.
    The operation decreases the Total Supply of the Token.
    Total supply cannot go below zero.
    The amount provided must be in the lowest denomination possible.
      Example: Token A has 2 decimals. In order to burn 100 tokens, one must provide an amount of 10000. In order to burn 100.55 tokens, one must provide an amount of 10055.
Transaction Signing Requirements:
    Supply key
    Transaction fee payer account key
