Binance Updates LUNC Burning Model Following Controversial Community Proposals
Trading costs for LUNC will drop from 100% to 50% thanks to Binance. LUNC responded poorly, losing 12% on the day.
The most popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance has revealed that it is modifying the way that trading fees for Terra Classic (LUNC) are burned.
The exchange claims that the modifications were made in reaction to two contentious proposals, Proposals 10983 and 11111, which would have reconstituted LUNC Burn as a development fund.
Changes Are Made to the LUNC Burn Mechanism by Binance
As part of the adjustments, Binance said that effective on December 28, 2022, it will cut its LUNC spot and margin trading fees from 100% to 50%.
The exchange noted that until March 1, 2023, it will postpone distributing LUNC trading fee burn contributions to burn addresses. This will guarantee that the trading fees won’t be re-minted until the LUNC community complies with Binance’s demands.
How do Binance Requests work?
The cryptocurrency exchange said that it has discussed the demands with the Terra Grants Foundation’s executive staff.
In order to transmit LUNC spot and margin trading fees to the new burn wallet, which does not permit re-minting of the burn amount, Binance has asked the foundation to make one.
In order to prevent the transaction tax from being charged when money is transferred between these wallets, the trading platform also requested that the foundation add its wallets to a whitelist.
If the community doesn’t comply with these demands, according to Binance, the LUNC Burn mechanism on its platform will be terminated.
The exchange said that Binance would consider removing the burn contribution moving forward if the community couldn’t support the execution of the new strategy.
LUNC Declines 12%
Despite being one of the strongest performers over the previous few days, the price of LUNC fell abruptly by more than 12% on the day after the announcement. The price of the coin at the time of writing was $0.0001599.
The broader cryptocurrency market is suffering, with numerous altcoins down double digits after bitcoin failed to recoup $17,000, it is important to note.
Changes Are Made To The Terra Classic (LUNC) Burn By Binance
The Terra Classic community is continuing to be supported by Binance’s LUNC burn mechanism improvements, according to an official notice made on December 28 by the cryptocurrency exchange. With effect from December 28, Binance will instead burn 50% of the LUNC spot and margin trading fees.
According to Binance, the action was taken in response to recent events regarding Proposals 10983 and 11111, in which LUNC burn is re-minted as a development fund. Additionally, until March 1, 2023, the cryptocurrency exchange will postpone delivering Terra Classic (LUNC) trade fees to the burn address. It will stop LUNC trading fees from being reminted until important ideas have been approved by the community.
Additionally, Binance is in talks to make the required adjustments with the Terra Grants Foundation, which is run by Edward Kim, the key developer of Terra Classic. It also entails adding Binance’s wallets to a whitelist in order to avoid paying taxes when moving money between them and making a new burn wallet in order to stop the re-minting of LUNC tokens.
If the community doesn’t implement these improvements, according to Binance, the cryptocurrency exchange could discontinue the burn process.
Terra Rebels were held accountable by Validator LUNC DAO for entirely wrecking its partnership with Binance. He proposes that in order to keep Binance’s backing, the LUNC community adheres to the requirements. The community has approved Proposal 11111, which will overturn Proposal 10983 and add 10%—rather than 50%—of the 0.2% burn tax to the communal pool.
