Legally Absolved Route To Burn 800 Million USTC For Terra Classic (LUNC) Recovery

After reaching an impressive 85 billion LUNC burn milestone on December 1, 2023, the Terra Classic (LUNC) community could be about to burn an 800 million USTC stablecoin.

This proposal, fueled by a recent validator suggestion and a sharp decline in LUNC and USTC prices, has reignited internal debates about the future of the Terra Classic ecosystem.

The Burning Plan

The proposed burn would target idle USTC tokens currently held in the Risk Harbor Multisig Wallet, formerly known as the Ozone Protocol Multisig Wallet.

Ozone’s progress has been deemed unsatisfactory by some community members, leading to calls to redeploy the funds or, in this case, burn them in an attempt to decrease supply and potentially increase LUNC and USTC prices.

Lunanauts, a Terra Classic validator, has outlined a potential path for the burn, aiming to minimize legal risks. The plan involves creating a simple contract that transfers all USTC from the Risk Harbor multisig wallet to a burn address. This contract would then be implemented via a governance proposal, eliminating the need for individual validators to install any code.

The Rationale Behind the Burn 

By burning 800 million USTC, the community hopes to decrease the overall supply, potentially leading to price appreciation. Furthermore, a successful burn could renew investor confidence in LUNC and USTC, boosting the recovery of the Terra Classic ecosystem.

Despite the positive outlook, there are potential risks associated with it. While a successful burn could lead to a price surge, it could also backfire and further dampen investor sentiment coupled with legal complexities and potential regulatory scrutiny.

Additional Efforts to Revive Terra Classic Ecosystem

It’s important to note that the burn is just one piece of the puzzle. The Terra Classic community is actively pursuing other initiatives to revive LUNC and USTC.

Core developers are working on improving the Terra Classic blockchain and implementing new features to attract users and developers. Also, the community is actively engaging with potential investors and partners to build a sustainable future for the crypto project.


The success of Terra Classic hinges on a delicate balance between bold actions like the proposed burn and continued commitment to development, community engagement, and marketing. Whether the burn proves to be the catalyst for a sustainable comeback or a temporary spark in the flames remains to be seen.

The resilience and determination of the Terra Classic community will be tested again as they enter this critical chapter in their journey.
