Top Crypto News Today: Binance completes first Terra Classic burn; $1.86 million worth of LUNC tokens burned

Binance executes first LUNC burn

In a major development, just a few days after the announcement of a burning protocol being undertaken by Binance to shrink the supply of the hyperinflated Terra Classic’s token, LUNC in an effort to bring some relief to investors stuck with that crypto token. It is a mechanism where Binance will burn a part of the fees collected from LUNC trading.

According to the announcement by the global crypto exchange, Binance has burned $1.8 million worth of trading fees from Terra Classic (LUNC) spot and trading pairs. The exchange has effectively removed 5.6 billion LUNC tokens from circulation. The exchange also stated that the burning mechanism wouldn’t affect the trading fees of LUNC sport and margin trading.

According to data from the LUNC burn tracker (lunc.tech), 13.76 billion LUNC tokens have been burned from its supply. This accounts for 0.199749% of the total supply of Terra Classic (LUNC). However, in the previous 24 hours, 5,600,886,705.6 LUNC have been burned. As a result, over 307,210,647 LUNC has been burned by the new tax burn regime.

Terra Classic’s total supply as of writing is 6.9 trillion LUNC tokens but the number of LUNC tokens burned till date is 7.47 billion LUNC. According to data from lunc.tech, of the total number LUNCs burned is about 3.2 billion in the past 10 days which equates to roughly 300 million LUNC are burned on a daily basis.

Crypto burning is a mechanism whereby cryptos are permanently removed from circulation by sending them to dead wallets or burn addresses thus attempting to improve the scarcity of the asset, making it deflationary, instead of an inflationary asset. This comes in line with Binance’s earlier announcement of the introduction of a 1.2% tax burn regime on LUNC deposits and withdrawals in the form of a consolidation fee.

It must be noted from the chart above that the LUNC token has been responding very well to the developments that have been happening in the Terra Classic ecosystem.

From a technical standpoint, LUNC price is trading above the 50 day moving average (marked in cyan). Along with that, the Relative Strength Index for LUNC price is currently just shy of 50, but had recently touched near 80 levels.
