Binance responded to the LUNC community’s requests and decided to burn any fees associated with LUNC spot or margin trading pairs. Binance indicated that they would transmit trading fees as well margin trading pairs to LUNC burning addresses.
The announcement was made via a blog post on Binance’s official website. The Terra Classic community expressed dissatisfaction with an ‘opt-in button proposed by Binance CEO. Binance provided the opt-in option to let users choose whether or not to have a 1.2% tax cut on their spot.
After careful evaluation and consideration, Binance decided to take cognizance of the community’s dissatisfaction and set a new proposal. Binance realized that the implementation of an opt in proposal might be time-consuming and not supported by traders. So, Binance proposed an easier and quicker way to assist Terra Classic.
Details Of Binance’s New Burn Mechanism On Tera Classic Spot
Binance stated that it will update weekly the amount of LUNC, USDT equivalent and transaction ID. The blog announcement also outlined the rules for the burn mechanism.
Binance will calculate trading fees for LUNC spot trading and margin trading pairs from previous weeks every Monday at 00.00:00 UTC. Reports and transactions on the chain would then be updated every Tuesday at 00.00:00 UTC.
Starting September 21, at 00.00:00 UTC and ending October 1, at 23.59.59 UTC the first set of burned trading fees would apply. The rebates on LUNC Spot and Margin Trading Pairs for Binance Spot Liquidity Provider Program would not apply from September 21 through 27, 2021.
