Crypto exchange Binance burned 2.65B Terra Classic (LUNC) tokens to increase the currency’s value by reducing its overall supply. 

In its eleventh Terra Classic burn round, Binance sent the $230K worth of LUNC tokens to an inaccessible wallet, effectively removing them from circulation. As noted by the blockchain intelligence platform Terra Finder, the exchange paid 13.25M LUNC as transaction fees for the burn transaction. 

Before its crash in May 2022, Terra (UST) was one of the highest-performing stablecoins with a market capitalization nearing $18.5B. Following the Terra-Luna collapse, the original blockchain was rebranded as Terra Classic.
