What is known about Terra 2.0? The launch of the Terra 2.0 blockchain is designed to preserve the project’s ecosystem after the recent collapse. The old network was called Terra Classic (LUNC) and the LUNA ticker has moved to the new token. Among the “pre-attack” LUNC holders were distributed 35%, while the “post-attack” received 10% of the tokens. “Pre-” and “post-attack” UST holders received 10% and 15% of the new tokens, respectively. Initially, 30% of the funds were unlocked at launch, with the remaining 70% to be distributed over the course of two years.

What events happened before? On May 8, the rate of the algorithmic stablecoin UST lost its peg to the dollar and dropped to $0,22 over the following days. The LUNA token rate also collapsed by 86% per day. For a full timeline of the events surrounding the rate collapse of UST and LUNA, see GetBlock Magazine’s special feature.
