A Recovery Plan

Following the crash of the Terra LUNA and Terra USD, Terraform, the company behind the Terra blockchain announced a recovery plan. It also asked for inputs from the crypto community.

According to the Terra team, the Terra Proposal 1623, will involve the launch of a new blockchain, This blockchain will not incorporate the Terra algorithmic stablecoin (UST) unlike the previous chain. Terra team states that it will:

“effectively create a new Terra chain without the algorithmic stablecoin. The old chain will be called Terra Classic (token: $LUNC), and the new chain will be called Terra (token: $LUNA). The chain upgrade will commence a few hours after the Launch snapshot.”

The new chain which will be launched on May 27. The release added that the new tokens will be airdropped to the community in this manner:

“$LUNA will be airdropped across $LUNA Classic stakers, $LUNA Classic holders, residual $UST holders, and essential app developers of Terra Classic.”

According to the Terra update, the distribution is as follows:

  • Community pool: 30%
  • Pre-attack $LUNA holders: 35%
  • Pre-attack aUST holders: 10%
  • Post-attack $LUNA holders: 10%
