The world’s largest crypto exchange Binance has successfully completed six years of operations. Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao shared the crypto exchange’s key events and challenges in an official statement, in which he also disclosed that Binance invested $3 million in Terra (now Terra Luna Classic) and never moved or sold LUNC holdings. Binance currently supports the Terra Luna Classic community with monthly LUNC burns and committing to the revival roadmap.

“we saw our initial $3M investment back in 2018 turn into $1.6bn at Terra’s 2021 peak, and then down to close to $0 in 2022. Until today, the LUNA (now LUNC) tokens we received still sit on the address we originally received them on, never moved and never sold.”


After the May 2022 Terra-LUNA crisis, the Binance team asked CEO “CZ” whether to sell the tokens, he said “no, let’s just hold.”
