  • The Luna Classic community recently voted in favour of Proposal 11242
  • The proposal will stop the re-minting of burnt LUNC and raise the gas price

After the catastrophic Terra collapse, Terra Classic [LUNC] has been working tirelessly to ensure its recovery. Although the rally was initially challenging, it became more so due to the widespread FUD that emerged after Terra’s collapse.

Furthermore, the subsequent lengthy bear market could also be blamed. However, the token may be on the mend thanks to a recently approved proposal by the community.

Enter Proposal 11242

In response to the steep drop in the on-chain burn rate of LUNC tokens over the preceding four weeks, proposal 11242 was submitted.

In an effort to halt the LUNC re-minting from burns by effectively setting the seigniorage incentive policy to zero, the proposal was submitted at the start of 2023. Over two-thirds of the voters in the network approved the plan.

Before this, after each epoch, 10% of LUNC tokens were re-minted from the 0.2% burn tax and added to the community pool. The acceptance of the proposal effectively ended LUNC re-minting burns by setting the seigniorage reward policy to zero.

The other part of the proposal sought to fund the community oracle pool by doubling the network’s gas prices, which would, in turn, raise staking rewards.

Binance also signalled its support for the proposal, which calls for an upgrade to be implemented on 14 January. Binance announced support for the upgrade in a press release dated 13 January. The exchange would also temporarily halt deposits involving USTC, LUNC, and ANC.

LUNC continues bullish run

On the chart for the daily timeframe, LUNC responded favourably. Its value climbed by 4.92% when the trading session on 13 January concluded. Its value had increased by more than 5% as of this writing, trading in the neighbourhood of $0.00018.
