Unknown box on Daedalus wallet

I am delegating ADA in my Daedalus wallet. Recently a box appeared on my Daedalus wallet Summary Page. Above the box was a label titled “Tokens (1)”. In the box was an address beginning with “asset1pmm…”. Below that was the number 10,000. To the right of the address and the number was a clickable icon labeled “Send”. Out of curiosity I clicked on the icon and was asked for a Receiver’s address. There was another box labeled “Estimated Fees.” The amount in the box indicated 0.0000000 ADA. There was a greyed-out Send icon waiting, I assume, for me to enter an address. Since I have no idea what any of this means, I couldn’t/didn’t input an address.

Can someone explain what this is and why it appeared in my Daedalus wallet? What does the number 10,000 represent? What is an address starting with “asset1pmm…” represent? What address, if any, should I use to complete the Send function? How can I remove this box short of sending 10,000 something to somewhere?

Any help would be appreciated. I tried asking in Staking and Delegation but received no replies

Someone sent you a new cardano native token.

When you hover your curser over the amount of token you should see a infobox and a attribute called “ASCII” which is the name of the token.

Thank you very much for the information. I have never heard of a token named ASCII. I thought ASCII was a character encoding standard. I searched on CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko but couldn’t find it.

If it is a valid token, how did it get in my Daedalus wallet without my approval? Also, assuming I should deposit it, what address should I use?

This is very confusing to me. I thought a Daedalus wallet only held ADA.

Sorry there is a missunderstanding. The name of the token isnt ASCII, as you said this is an character encoding standard.

For example : image

The name of the token here is spacecoins

Thank you again for your quick reply. I’m not interested in Spacecoin. How do I remove them from my Daedalus wallet? If you want them, send me an address. I will send them to you.

:sweat_smile: You cant hide them. Just send them to any public address or ignore them :stuck_out_tongue:
