LUNC DAO Takes The Lead In The LUNC Burn, As Over 5M Is Burned

At the moment, there is virtually no statement from the LUNC DAO as regards the burning, although the memo which reads LUNC-DAO-BURN confirms that it came from the validator.

The latest transaction brings LUNC DAO’s cumulative burn to 434,178,868 (434.1M) LUNC at the time of reporting, as it retains its position as the fifth most giant burner, towering over other validators such as Allnodes (344.3M), Happy Catty Crypto (34M) and Luna Station 88 (30.2M).

It is worth noting that while the community sustain a persistent burn initiative, a validator in the crypto space has been burning LUNC in its millions. For instance, the prominent crypto influential Classy noted that he had burned 100% of the commission from his validator in the previous month.

Notably, so far the total LUNC burns represent only 0.54% of the asset’s total supply has been burned, amounting to 37.6B tokens. This rate was 0.53% last month and this makes the community in a dilemma as maybe the burn initiative would be able to revive the LUNC. Considering the current burn rate of 269M per day, only 7.5% of the supply will be incinerated in 5 years.

While the idea of the merging of the LUNC and LUNA was opposed by many, a prominent developer in the LUNC network, Zaradar, the one that authored a proposal that sorted an alternative way of re-peg USTC

other than re-minting.

He said that there is a way both assets can co-exist, presenting several means through which they can complement each other. According to him, if his methods are adopted, LUNC could soar above $1 in twenty years.
