Binance implements mass burning of Luna Classic
Binance burned 5.59 billion Luna Classic tokens in response to the LUNC community proposal. The world’s largest exchange by volume, Binance, informed users that the burn will be implemented weekly until further notice. Binance burned all the trading fees collected on LUNC spot and margin trading pairs. The specific amount of LUNC burned will change on a weekly basis however, Binance will consistently pull Terra’s Luna Classic tokens out of circulation for the LUNC community.

Burn implementation by Binance has fueled a bullish sentiment among holders. The community started a campaign on crypto Twitter, pushing for a #1000x recovery in Terra Classic price.
Prior to Binance’s LUNC burn, nearly 291 million LUNC was being burned daily. OfficialTravlad, a crypto analyst and trader, expects other cryptocurrency exchanges to start burning Luna Classic tokens as Binance sets an example with the 5.59 billion LUNC burn.
The analyst believes over a period of one year, with other cryptocurrency exchanges onboard, 550 billion LUNC could be pulled out of circulation. This represents 12.5% of LUNC’s supply.

Pre-Binance burn and post 1.2% burn implementation (September 21st) around 291M $LUNC was being burned daily.
Binance today burned 5.6B $LUNC which I presume was accumulated over the last week via the 0.1% tx tax. (1/5)#LUNCcommunity
ClassyCrypto_ evaluated the Luna Classic price trend and revealed a bullish outlook. While the community of LUNC holders await a #1000x recovery in Luna Classic, the analyst believes the token could be 3x and lose a zero by the end of 2022 at the current burn rate.
