278 million LUNA burned since Do Kwon posted a burning address

Last week, Terra founder Do Kwon shared a LUNA brand address with his Twitter followers. Shortly after posting, the wallet received nearly 280 million LUNA tokens. Interestingly, two days after the wallet was published, Kwon explained that there is no point in sending LUNA to that address and will only lead to a loss of tokens. The “revelation tweet” took effect: 254 million LUNA were sent to the wallet from the time the address was first published, and after Kwon admitted that burning LUNA is pointless, it received only 25 million. It is worth noting that destroying nearly 300 million tokens had little effect on LUNA’s price and market cap. Currently, LUNA is trading at $0.000193, while the project’s market cap is dangling at $1 billion.
