Binance LUNC Burn Reaches Over 30 Billion After Latest Burn
According to the burn transaction, Binance sent 1.612 billion Terra Luna Classic (LUNC) tokens to the burn address, contributing to reducing the LUNC circulating supply. With the latest burn, Binance has burned over 30.5 billion Terra Classic tokens in total from spot and margin trading fees.
The 8th batch of the LUNC burn mechanism is for the period Feb 28 to March 30, 2023. The crypto exchange switched from weekly burn to monthly burn to better organize burn and reduce costs.
The decline in Binance LUNC burn contribution is due to burning 50% of the LUNC spot and margin trading fees instead of 100%. It happened after the community passed Proposal 10983 to fund the community pool with 50% of the 0.2% burn tax instead of 10% for on-chain development.

The community voted down proposals related to increasing the burn rate despite eagerly awaiting massive burn events. Some fear Binance could withdraw its LUNC burn mechanism or reduce burn contribution similar to reducing its LUNC trading fee burn contribution to 50% earlier.
