The lowered burn tax rate as a catalyst for growth

In the latest Terra news, the contributors behind Terra Classic adjusted the tax burn rate from 1.2% down to 0.2% due to the previous rate being considered to prompt a drop in activity within the network.

This updated rate came into force at 8:50 A.M. ET after the community approved the governance proposal known as “Proposal 5234″ and decreased the number of tokens burned with each transaction.

This will likely lead to much higher network activity and can contribute to the growth in the value of the LUNC cryptocurrency.

The 1.2 burn tax aimed to improve LUNC’s tokenomics; however, it disincentivized usage and shrunk the on-chain activity. It drove down the transaction volume by 91.67% based on estimates from core contributors.
