MEXC Contributions to LUNC Burns

It is noteworthy that MEXC is among the cryptocurrency exchanges seeking to help LUNC investors revive the value of the cryptocurrency. 

MEXC has already declared that it will support the 1.2% tax burn of LUNC once the proposal is implemented on the Terra Classic network’s mainnet. The 1.2% tax burn will go live on September 21, 2022, or at a block height of 9,475,200. 

However, before the exercise, MEXC launched a time-limited burn program for LUNC, an event launched to contribute to Terra’s community burn effort.
