With its most recent comeback, Terra Classic (LUNC) has recently attracted the attention of the larger crypto community. Along with its encouraging price fluctuations, LUNAtics has offered the asset enthusiastic support.

This argument is further supported by the 1.2% tax burn proposal, which aims to reduce the enormous supply of the asset. Some exchanges have so far demonstrated support for the tax burn. The most recent to do this is the exchange Kraken, which is situated in California.

In a formal report that was made public, Kraken, a Top US Exchange, expressed support for the Terra Classic 1.2% tax burn proposal on LUNC transactions.

On Wednesday, Kraken declared its support for the LUNC 1.2% tax burn via a tweet and on its official website.

Kraken will charge a fee in order to implement the tax burn

Kraken warned all users in the official release that the platform would charge a fee in order to impose the 1.2% tax burn on LUNC and UST on-chain transactions.

“When depositing LUNA or UST on Kraken, the deposit transaction must include the 1.2% tax in its transaction fee.” says Kraken in regards to LUNC and UST deposits.

Additionally, Kraken advised users to take into account a separate “1.2% sweep fee” that it would withhold from their deposits.

Regarding withdrawals, Kraken stated:

“When moving LUNA or UST off Kraken, transactions will be taxed by the Terra Classic network before they reach your external address. The balance will be credited to your external wallet, minus the 1.2% tax deduction by the network.” 

Readers must take note for the time being that Kraken does not apply Burns to LUNC trading.

Kraken stated that after the proposal is submitted, the proposed adjustments will go into effect. The exchange places this at the LUNC block height of 9,475,200 on September 21 at 6 AM (UTC).

Following the tax burn proposal’s recent resurgence, a number of leading exchanges have expressed support. Bitrue, a Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange platform, declared its support for the tax burn today in an official blog post, according to a recent report by Fxcryptonews. The tax burn mechanism is anticipated to go operational on September 20 by the platform.

There are presently 9 exchanges willing to implement the tax burn

With Kraken’s support, there are now nine exchanges eager to put the tax burn into play. Binance, KuCoin, MEXC Global, Lbank, Huobi, Bitrue,, CoinInn, and most recently, Kraken, are some of these exchanges.

Only three of these will support burns on LUNC trading: Kucoin, MEXC Global, and CoinInn.

Holders of LUNC can now experience some relief as the asset is regaining its footing as more exchanges show support for the tax burn. Despite the decline of 21.41%, LUNC is currently trading at $0.00029, a significant gain from the $0.00009 value it consolidated at the end of last month.
