Terra Classic (LUNC) Community Passes Four Monumental Burn and Staking Proposals

Four proposals related to increasing burn tax, LUNC burn, and staking were passed by the Terra Classic community. The proposals outline key changes including raising the LUNC burn tax to 0.5%, rewarding people for staking, whitelisting Dapps contracts, and increasing community pool funding.

Fearing Binance withdrawing its LUNC burn mechanism, the community denied many proposals related to raising LUNC burn and burn tax. However, the sentiment has now changed after LUNC price fell below $0.000010 last week, reaching levels of last May when TerraUSD (UST) and LUNA prices collapsed drastically.

Terra Classic Proposal Passed by the Community

The four-part proposals will bring major changes to the Terra Classic network and community. CoinGape Media in a previous report cited reasons why Binance may support the Terra Classic community increasing the LUNC burn tax to 0.5%.

Proposal 11513 “[1/4] Split Burn Tax with Distribution Module”

The text proposal seeks to modify the burn AnteHandler to split the Burn tax to the Distribution Module instead of the Community Pool. This will increase staking rewards and boost demand for staking, indirectly helping validators on the network. The proposal passed with 82% “Yes” votes, supporting to reward stakers for Terra Classic staking.
