What’s new? Binance and Huobi cryptocurrency exchanges have announced that they will support the launch of the new Terra 2.0 network. On Twitter, Binance representatives noted that they are in close contact with the blockchain’s developers to work on a recovery plan.

What happened before? The network’s community supported Terraform Labs CEO Do Kwon’s proposal to create a new blockchain. The new network, which will be launched on May 27, will limit the supply of LUNA tokens to 1 billion. When Terra 2.0 is created, the old blockchain will be called Terra Classic (LUNC) and the LUNA ticker will be transferred to the new token.

The “pre-attack” snapshot is considered May 7, 2022, and there will also be a snapshot before the launch of the new network. Based on these two snapshots, a drop of new tokens will be conducted. The coins will be distributed among the “pre-attack” and “post-attack” LUNC and UST holders with another portion of the funds going to the community pool.

On May 25, it was reported that the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) of DeFi project Lido Finance did not support the idea of switching to Terra 2.0. 95% of the community votes were against it.

Terra representatives noted that some popular dApps are already ready to migrate to the new network, among them: Prism, Stader, RandomEarth, and OnePlanet.

On May 23, Terraform Labs CEO Do Kwon called the burning of Terra tokens a bad idea. In his view, it would not restore the Terra ecosystem, furthermore, the holders would lose their assets. Despite this statement, the Terra CEO provided a wallet address for the burn of LUNA coins.
