Classy Crypto, Terra Classic influencer and part of the Terraport marketing team, revealed that a hacker drained Terraport Finance’s native token TERRA liquidity. He agrees that the Terraport team should have listened to LUNCDAO on auditing the platform before launching it.
Nearly 9.5 million TERRA, 15 billion LUNC, and 5.5 million USTC have been withdrawn by hackers.
Terraport is developed by the developer group TerraCVita to revive the Terra Luna Classic network and increase the LUNC burn rate. The platform received $2 million in funding in January, showing commitment to revive the Terra Classic network and support LUNC burn. The team successfully burned 100 million LUNC tokens in the debut week.
The team has asked Binance and MEXC Global to freeze the crypto assets immediately as tokens worth millions transferred to these exchanges.
Binance CEO “CZ” replied to submit a CS case to the security team, which is faster than going through CZ itself.
Please submit a CS case ASAP. We have a SOP for it, it’s faster than going through me. I don’t know which account/address, etc. And I am a “slow middle man”.

Crypto exchange MEXC Global has also closed deposits for LUNC. The team has reached other exchanges to freeze LUNC transactions temporarily.
Binance CEO later revealed that his team has reviewed the transactions and found no funds deposited to Binance. Some of the hacked funds were deposited to MEXC and KuCoin.
The LUNC price is currently trading at $0.000124, down 1% in the last 24 hours. The 24-hour low and high are $0.000123 and $0.000125, respectively. Furthermore, the trading volume has decreased by 50%, indicating a decline in interest.
