Crypto exchanges welcome Terra’s LUNA chain

Terraform Labs’ sister tokens LUNA and UST witnessed the first “crypto bank run '' in history after the algorithmic stablecoin depegged. Co-founder Do Kwon wasted no time in coming up with a revival plan for LUNA, without UST, proposing a new chain. 

While the community has criticized the hard fork, Terraform Labs considers it a “genesis”, birth of a new Terra LUNA chain that does not share history with the previous blockchain. 

Cryptocurrency exchanges that previously delisted or pulled support for Terra’s LUNA, during the event of the crash have welcomed the new chain. The world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance was among the first few platforms to delist Terraform Lab’s tokens from the futures exchange. 

Binance recently revealed that they are working “closely” with Terra on the LUNA 2.0 recovery plan. 

Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the CEO of Binance has previously criticized the collapse of stablecoin UST and the negative impact on the crypto ecosystem. However, keeping in mind the best interests of the community of LUNA and UST holders, the exchange has come forward, and welcomed the LUNA 2.0 chain and token. 

LUNA price

In the last 24 hours, Huobi, Bitfinex, Bitrue, HitBTC and FTX have all announced their intention to welcome Terra’s LUNA 2.0 and support the new version of the blockchain. 

Coinbase pulls support for new Terra chain after LUNA price crash

While leading cryptocurrency exchanges announced support for Terra’s hard fork, Coinbase’s infrastructure arm revealed that no new LUNA chain would be supported. 

The exchange has no plans to support Terra 2.0 at this time. Interestingly, the exchange suspended trading in UST and WLUNA on May 27, the day of Terra’s rebirth.

What you need to know about Terra 2.0 

After its rebirth, Terra 2.0 will be joined by projects from Terra Classic. A confirmed list of projects is:

  • Astroport
  • Prism
  • RandomEarth
  • Spectrum
  • Nebula
  • Cosmos

The new network will inherit the community of developers and users. Funds will be distributed to pre and post attack LUNA and UST holders, set aside and locked in community pools, at Genesis. 

Terra 2.0 will abandon the history of transactions from the old Terra chain, the Classic. All LUNA (set aside for airdrop) will be automatically staked to Terra validators to preserve network security. Users can reap staking rewards or unbond their tokens. 

After unlocking the first 30% of their tokens, users will not receive any additional LUNA until six months later, this is a 6-month cliff. 

Terra 2.0 launch is accompanied by a big move in Binance Coin

Cryptocurrency analysts at FXStreet have identified a possible big move in Binance Smart Chain’s token BNB. Though Binance Coin is still within the corrective trend channel, analysts have set a bullish target for BNB price recovery.
