- The community is pushing Binance to allow the tax burn on off-chain.
- The price of Terra Classic (LUNC) dropped by roughly 10% in an hour.
In an Ask Me Anything session on Friday, Binance CEO “CZ” claimed the cryptocurrency exchange will not be implementing the 1.2% tax burn for off-chain transactions using Terra Classic (LUNC) and USTC. Due to the fact that roughly 35% of all LUNC are held on Binance, the price of Terra Classic (LUNC) dropped about 10% in an hour, to $0.00024. The community is pushing Binance to allow the tax burn off-chain, despite the CEO’s concerns that it would have a negative effect on trade on Binance.
In an AMA on September 23, Binance CEO “CZ” claimed that the cryptocurrency exchange would back the Terra Classic community, but that the 1.2% tax burn on off-chain transactions will affect trade.
Binance has also imposed a 1.2% tax burn on both deposits and withdrawals. On-chain transactions, like spot trading, margin trading, and Binance Earn services, are exempt from the tax burn.

If traders are discouraged by higher transaction costs, blockchain technology will lose much of its value. As a result of community demand, Terra Classic (LUNC) taxes should be burned while doing off-chain transactions. The plan’s potential consequences, however, make its implementation unlikely.
In a tweet, Binance CEO “CZ” revealed an alternative plan to apply a 1.2% trading cost for the burn. He comes up with the idea of a voting system where users may pay a 1.2% trade charge if they so want.
The price of Terra Classic (LUNC) dropped by roughly 10% in an hour after “CZ,” the CEO of Binance, said he did not back the 1.2% tax burn for off-chain transactions.
