Binance Switches to Monthly Terra Classic (LUNC) Burn

After burning 1.26 billion Terra Classic (LUNC) tokens in the fifth batch of the weekly burn mechanism, Binance changed the rules to burn LUNC on monthly basis. Therefore, Binance will burn trading fees on LUNC spot and margin trading pairs from October 30-November 29 on December 1.

Binance will calculate total trading fees on LUNC spot and margin trading pairs to be burned from the previous month on the first day of every month. The subsequent on-chain burn transactions and monthly report will be updated on the next day.
