The LUNC burns remain one of the Terra Classic of the community’s targets staking also goes a long way in assisting with reducing the asset’s circulating supply. KuCoin’s move took 47.9 billion LUNC out of circulation at once, which should support the asset’s price action.

Additionally, due to KuCoin’s position as one of the biggest exchanges in the crypto scene, this development should trigger a resurgence of investor confidence in Terra Classic. LUNC influencer Classy also pointed out the significance of the move. “One of the largest centralized exchanges KuCoin has now entered the LUNC chain once again as a validator,” Classy remarked in a tweet today.

The exchange also unstaked its ATOM and LUNA tokens.
