Terra Classic (LUNC) Community Votes On Proposal to Burn 8 Million USTC

Terra Classic ecosystem tokens, LUNC and USTC, have been on a tumultuous journey, with a crash and subsequent rise from the ashes. Now, a contentious debate surrounding tokenomics is taking center stage.

The focal point of this battle is Proposal 11958, which calls for the incineration of 8 million USTC from the community pool in a bid to revive the imploded Terra Classic tokens, including LUNC and USTC.

A Burning Question: Will it Ignite or Fizzle Out?

Supporters of the burn argue that it is a necessary step towards achieving deflation and stability. They view the 8 million USTC as excess baggage, with the community pool already holding a substantial 3.49 billion LUNC, enough to cover operational costs.

Vocal supporter, VegasMorph, emphasizes that this action sends a powerful message about actively shaping the future of the Terra Classic ecosystem.

However, skeptics remain unconvinced. The proposal received a lukewarm response, with only 28% of the community voting in favor, while 71% opposed it. An additional 1% wielded the “No with Veto” hammer.

This skepticism stems from the community’s preference for exploring alternative burn mechanisms, particularly regarding the 800 million USTC trapped in the inaccessible Risk Harbor wallet.

The community’s wariness of drastic measures is a direct result of the bitter lessons learned from the Risk Harbor saga, which serves as a painful reminder of the May 2022 crash.

In response, they are actively seeking creative solutions. Ideas under consideration include on-chain burning mechanisms and community-driven initiatives that incentivize USTC burning.

Market Reflects Uncertainty

The market mirrors the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the burn proposal. LUNC, after a brief surge, experienced a 2% dip from its 24-hour high, with the current value hovering around $0.0001441.

However, trading volume witnessed a 10% increase, indicating sustained interest in the digital asset. On the other hand, USTC remained relatively stagnant, trading at $0.0325.

Awaiting the Phoenix’s Return

Although the 8 million USTC burn proposal may have encountered resistance, it has sparked a crucial conversation about the future of Terra Classic.

The community’s unwavering dedication to finding innovative solutions demonstrates its resilience and belief in the platform’s potential for resurgence.


Whether through targeted burns or ingenious community-driven initiatives, the ultimate goal remains the same: to restore Terra Classic to its former glory and reshape its narrative from ashes to ascendancy.

A Lesson Learned, a Shadow Cast

The inaccessible 800 million USTC trapped in Risk Harbor’s multisig wallet serves as a stark reminder of the fragility of trust and the critical need for robust contingency plans.

While the community’s decision to blacklist the wallet was necessary, it highlights the importance of exercising greater vigilance in safeguarding assets and ensuring accountability from third-party partners.
