Let's take a look at how Luna Classic has been performing recently.

Terra Luna Classic price

At press time, Luna Classic is currently sitting at $0.00017318 down 2% in the last 24 hours and down 29% over the last 30 days. The token's market cap is just over a billion with a 24-hour trading volume of $72 million.

Luna Classic's price has certainly had a volatile few months. The Terra Luna community had an eventful May 2021, with the unprecedented Luna collapse wiping billions off the crypto market.

After the Luna crash that wiped millions of dollars off the crypto market, Terraform Labs founder Do Kwon introduced a new chain as part of the Luna recovery.

Luna validators approved this through a preliminary Terra Luna vote, but the recent Luna 2.0 statistics paint a somewhat disappointing picture for those hoping to recover their lost money.

In an interesting turn of events, the newly launched Luna 2.0 fell over 70% after the Luna 2.0 airdrop. Conversely, the price of Luna Classic soared in its wake and jumped over 100% in 24 hours after the airdrop.

In addition, the proposal to implement a 1.2% tax burn has been passed, with a majority of community members favouring the proposed change. In this wake, crypto exchange Binance has implemented the Terra Luna Classic burn mechanism.

In the statement from Binance:

To clarify, LUNC and USTC deposits from users’ deposit addresses into Binance hot wallets will be consolidated and subject to the 1.2% tax burn fee by Terra Classic network once the burn tax is live. We will include the 1.2% tax burn fee into the withdrawal fees for LUNC and USTC. Users will not be charged this fee until withdrawals are made.
