Crypto Daily Spotlight
Terra projects are migrating to the Polygon blockchain months after the LUNA crash.
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. Starting on May 9, Terra (Luna) collapsed, losing more than 99 percent of its value due to its link to terraUSD (UST), a stablecoin which was pegged to the US dollar.
Why it matters:
More than 48 projects have begun migrating to Polygon two months after the Terra ecosystem collapsed
“Terra projects have begun migration. Over 48 projects and counting… including OnePlanet_NFT, an exclusive 0xPolygon marketplace, and DerbyStars_HQ,” Polygon Studios CEO, Ryan Wyatt, tweeted on Monday
“For any project that wants to come from Terra to Polygon, we will be happy to provide them both financial assistance as well as technical assistance,” a spokesperson from the Polygon ecosystem team said
