Cryptocurrency traders and investors often overlook the tokenomics and supply inflation of cryptocurrencies. Understanding how they affect the value of a crypto asset offers a valuable advantage when investing.
With that in mind, Finbold looked at Terra Classic (LUNC) tokenomics from a different perspective. Public market data from leading indexes can demonstrate the effects of an increased supply inflation. We calculated the exact price LUNC would trade if it ever hits the all-time high market cap.
Interestingly, any token needs more demand to keep its same value, facing an inflationary supply. These two factors influence whether a cryptocurrency’s price rises or falls. Each one of them, including Terra Classic, has its unique ‘tokenomics’ structure.

Notably, LUNC had an all-time high market cap of $40.99 billion on April 4, 2022, according to CoinMarketCap’s index. Meanwhile, the token traded for as high as $119.18 the next day. An inverse calculation suggests a circulating supply of around 343.933 million LUNC at that time.
Terra Classic supply inflation and its economic effects
Let’s explore LUNC’s supply inflation and its economic implications. As of this writing, Terra Classic has a circulating supply of 5.80 trillion LUNC. This results in a supply inflation superior to 5.80 trillion tokens (more than 1,000,000%).
The price projection also shows the massive economic effects of this huge inflation. In case the Terra Classic reaches its highest speculative demand of $40.99 billion market cap, LUNC would trade at a proportionally lower price than the corresponding all-time high.
Considering the circulating supply on December 1, Terra Classic would be priced at $0.00706 per token at its highest capitalization. Interestingly, a loss of $119.18 (99.999%) from the previous price in 2022.
However, this still indicates a potential 4,800% increase from the current price of $0.0001442.
It is important to understand that the forecast requires Terra Classic’s same demand as 2022. In this context, there are no guarantees that this demand will ever be seen again. On the other hand, it is also possible that a higher demand surges in the following years.
