  • At the time of writing, Coinbase dropped by 5.7% at $59.40 per share during pre-market trading

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 stabilise the price of the protocol’s stablecoins. On May 9, 2022, 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 U.S. dollar.

Why it matters:

  • Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz, who was a major investor in the collapsed Terra ecosystem, admitted in an interview that Terra’s business model was unsustainable

  • “In hindsight, looking at LUNA, you can’t offer people 18% interest, as they did with Anchor, and not have the world all run into yours,” Novogratz says in the interview

  • The CEO then went on to add that he is worried about the macro environment and hopes that Bitcoin will stay in the $30,000 to $50,000 price range
