With millions of LUNC set to be burned, all the LUNC tokens staked with the validator will be burned out of the network, and go on to reduce the amount of supply of the network. Classy Sphere also urged more validators to partake in the burn and aid in the network’s overall development.

Classy Sphere shows support for Binance and encourages other validators to follow his footsteps
Conclusively, the validator stood in solidarity with the Binance exchange. Notably, Binance has played a significant role in reducing LUNC’s supply. The exchange has set off a total of 2.65 billion Terra Classic tokens for the 11th batch of the LUNC burn mechanism, which attracted more than 13 million LUNC in transaction fees. The validator asserted:
We will REVIVE the NARRATIVE that made our chain GREAT. We will push FORWARD together. BURN IT ALLLLLLL! LET THE WORLD KNOW! MORE LUNC STAKED WITH OUR VALIDATOR = MORE LUNC BURNED. LET ALL VALIDATORS KNOW! LET US ALL BURN FOR THE MOVEMENT! LUNCBurn STARTS TODAY ONCE AGAIN! WE STAND WITH Binance !
Meanwhile, Luna Classic HQ recently took to Twitter to inform followers that the burn rate of Terra Classic (LUNC) is nearing 70 billion.
According to the burn rate update, the burn rate is currently sitting at 68,303,850,914. This makes up only 0.99% of the network’s LUNC supply.
Market sentiments are rightfully mixed at this time. Some community members are convinced that the consistent burn has done little to trigger LUNC bulls, while others are confident that the burn will pay off in the long term. At report time, LUNC has gained nearly 3% in the last hour. The altcoin trades for $0.0000838 at press time.
