Crypto exchanges eToro and Crypto.com are supporting the 1.2% tax burn for Terra Classic (LUNC) and USTC on the Terra Classic network. While Crypto.com has announced to support the tax burn for on-chain activities, eToro seems to offer tax burn for off-chain activities as well as on-chain activities.

eToro and Crypto.com Implement Tax Burn for Terra Classic (LUNC)

eToro in a notice on its website on September 20 said the crypto exchange will support the 1.2% tax burn for Terra Classic (LUNC) and USTC on the Terra Classic network. According to eToro, the tax burn will impact the operating costs associated with all offerings of LUNC.

eToro will add an operational fee of 0.6% to bid and ask prices for LUNC, in addition to the standard 1% fee applicable during buying or selling crypto assets on eToro. It suggests the crypto exchange will implement tax burn for on-chain (deposits and withdrawals) and off-chain activities (buying and selling).

The Terra Classic community requests all crypto exchanges to implement the 1.2% tax burn for all off-chain activities. The tax and burn mechanism continues until LUNC reaches a fixed supply of 10 billion. The tax burn gets disabled as the fixed supply reaches 10 billion.

“To ensure the safety of users’ funds during and after the upgrade, we will temporarily suspend deposits and withdrawals of LUNC token during the network upgrade. The trading of LUNC token will not be affected.”

Other crypto exchanges supporting the tax burn include Binance, KuCoin, Kraken, Huobi, Gate.io, MEXC Global CoinInn, BTCEX, and LBank.

Recently, Binance announced that the management will later decide on the implementation of the 1.2% tax burn for off-chain activities. Currently, the exchange will support tax burn for Terra Classic (LUNC) on on-chain activities.
