Binance has announced that it will not support the burning of $LUNC tax into spot or margin trades made on the exchange.Luna Classic Governance suggestion 3568 and 4159 passed to add a 1.2% tax to all on-chain transactions with a block height of 9,475,200.

However, exchange transactions are managed through an internal order book and not settled on-chain. Only deposits and withdrawals are registered on-chain, ensuring fast transaction settlement. DEXs allow users to trade on-chain, so a 1.2% tax burden will apply, but other exchanges may follow Binance’s lead.

Binance applies taxes on all deposits and withdrawals, according to the company’s press release issued on Thursday.

“Deposits: Transactions will be taxed by the Terra Classic network before reaching Binance. Balances will be credited to your Binance account after a 1.2% tax deduction by the network.

Withdrawals: Users will receive the withdrawal amount minus withdrawal fees charged by Binance and a 1.2% tax deduction by the network. “

KuCoin also announced on Wednesday, “support” Burn your taxes. However, they were unable to declare whether they apply tax on transactions, but confirmed that it applies to withdrawals and deposits.

In practice, all exchanges are registered on-chain between the exchange and the customer’s wallet, so they have to support the tax burden of deposits and withdrawals. The announcement that the exchange supports the tax is just public relations positioning. Still, Binance provided some new information in terms of not honoring trade burnout.

FatmanTerra responded to KuCoin’s announcement by confirming that it “cannot opt ​​out” and that “no exchange has ever done it before” and supported a tax burn on the transaction.

KuCoin took full advantage of the added attention late Thursday, prompting the Luna Classic community to speculate on the price.
