What could boost the demand for Terra Luna?
On its Twitter handle on Jan 8th, Terra (LUNA) shared its 172nd proposal to change the Terra tax rate from its current variable format of 1 SDT, which is about ~$1.39, today, to reduce the tax to zero. The voting is still live.
The terra tax rate is a monetary policy lever that is variable. It’s a fee in addition to the gas fee paid for all Terra network transactions. Lowering the terra tax rate will make it more economical to use the platform and could boost Luna’s demand.
