Crypto daily spotlight

Brief introduction: Terra is a decentralised stablecoin blockchain that uses fiat-pegged stablecoins to power price-stable global payments systems. Terra’s native token LUNA is used to stabilize the price of the protocol’s stablecoins.

Why it matters:

  • TerraUSD (UST) stablecoin briefly lost its dollar peg to .987 on Saturday and to as low as .650 on Monday

  • The reason for the loss of parity was figured out by a crypto researcher Mika Honkasalo that a significant amount of UST swapped for USDC happened on Curve

  • After that, Terraform Labs co-founder Do Kwon tweeted out a chart saying the loss of parity was due to 62% of Anchor withdrawals by a “single wallet”. He quickly deleted the tweet as he realized that he misread the chart

  • The de-pegging appeared to kick off with a series of FOMO withdrawals from Anchor Protocol as well, leading to a total of UST deposits falling from $14 billion down to $7.1 billion
