Terra Luna Classic Disables USTC Minting, LUNC Soared 18% And LUNA 33%

The Terra Luna Classic community has unanimously agreed to disable USTC minting and reminding by increasing the Tobin tax to 100%. The community and developers are working hard to repeg USTC, which will ultimately aid in the reviving of the Terra Luna Classic chain and LUNC token. In the previous 48 hours, LUNC, USTC, and even LUNA have seen a rally.

Proposal 11868 “Fulfill prop #11784 by disabling USTC minting via raising Tobin tax to 100%” was passed by the Terra Luna Classic Community in order to stop the minting and re-mining of USTC.

“The only minting of USTC currently happening on chain is through the market module, which allows burning a coin to mint another.”

Following the Terra-LUNA crisis in 2022, the mechanism was disabled, preventing swapping from and to LUNC via the market module. This effectively disables all market swapping and coin minting on Terra Classic. Users will be unable to exchange between USTC and other stablecoins, preventing USTC burn with swaps.

The idea has no bearing on coin swapping via DEXes such as Terraswap. This is still doable for existing pairs.

Validators such as Allnodes, Interstellar Lounge, HappyCattyCrypto, Interstake One, JESUSisLORD, and others have backed the proposal, making it the first to garner universal support from validators in months.
