Brief introduction: Terra is a decentralized 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. Starting on May 9, Terra (Luna) collapsed, losing more than 99 percent of its value due to its link to terraUSD (UST), a stablecoin that was pegged to the US dollar.

  • In total, 65.5% voted for Kwon’s proposal, 13.2% voted “no with veto.” against the fork, and 20.98% of voters decided to abstain

  • Terraform Labs have confirmed that the new Luna 2.0 blockchain release on May 27 will not share any history with Luna Classic

  • In response to Terra 2.0, Terraform Labs emphasises in a tweet that the Terra Ecosystem Revival Plan 2 is not a “fork”
