The Terra Classic v1.0.5 blockchain upgrade was successfully released at a block height of 11,543,150 on Feb 15 at 18:28:24. The proposer of the block was Kucoin LUNC Node. While the developers have been busy upgrading the blockchain, the community is failing to burn significant LUNC tokens this week as part of a commitment to remove the tokens from the total circulating supply.
The community burned over 15 million LUNC tokens last week, compared to 12 million LUNC in early January. The milestone set by the community showed a move in the right direction according to the goal of burning billions of LUNC in 2023. In fact, the community believes that the LUNC price can reach $1 in 2023 through regular burns and utility resets.
