Second Round Of LUNC Trading Fee Burns Of Binance
Although the update on the burn was once tracked by the LunaBurnTracker, which revealed it on its official Twitter handle. However, Binance hasn’t updated this transaction on its blog post but hopes to do so on or before 00:00 UTC on Tuesday.
Recall that the largest crypto exchange added its support for the LUNC tax burn on September 26th and recently start fulfilling its promise. The Binance first burn claimed a whooping of 5.5 billion. While this was a fulfilled promise for Binance, the LUNC community was somehow displeased saying such an amount shouldn’t be coming from a big crypto exchange like Binance.
It is worth noting that the second round LUNC burn by binance sums the total burn to 8.5 billion which is worth around 2.8 million for the exchange.
Generally, the LUNC community has destroyed a whopping almost 17.9 billion LUNC which places Binance burn to about 47% of the total burn so far while the 1.2% tax burn on on-chain transactions has destroyed a total of about 5 billion representing 28% of the total.
