After the colossal crash of Terraform Labs’ sister tokens LUNA (now Luna Classic, LUNC) and TerraUSD (UST), the CEO and co-founder of Terra unveiled a revival plan to salvage the ecosystem. LUNA 2.0, the revamped version of the LUNA coin, was launched and linked to a new blockchain. LUNA 2.0 price plummeted after its airdrop, with a consistent drop in the token’s price since the hard fork, before it rallied nearly 23% in the last hours. 

Binance and leading cryptocurrency exchanges support Terra’s LUNA 2.0

Major cryptocurrency exchanges pledged support for Terra’s LUNA 2.0 airdrop and listing across their platforms. Perpetual futures, spot and derivatives trading in LUNA 2.0 is live on several platforms. 

Together with crypto heavyweights like Binance and Kraken putting their weight behind LUNA 2.0, Leap wallet, Guarda wallet and Atomicwallet.io also support the token. Large players in the crypto wallet space, like MetaMask and Trust wallet, are yet to announce support for LUNA 2.0. 

Trust wallet, which supports 66 blockchains, recently called its community to vote on a governance proposal, choosing between the Ronin chain and Terra. Since both blockchains have suffered from an attack of different magnitudes that have negatively influenced their token prices, Trust wallet asked the community to identify the chain where the positives outweigh the cost of prioritizing integration.
