- Binance removes the warning signs on Terra’s fallen USTC stablecoin.
- Meanwhile, Terra’s community is voting on the USTC repeg proposal.
- The Lunatics expect a LUNC pump to stay above the $1bn market cap.
The vast community behind the notorious Terra (LUNA) blockchain is finally seeing some bright clouds, as the failed stablecoin TerraClassicUSD (USTC) inked 14% gains in less than 24 hours. Terra’s faulty stablecoin caught a bullish trend right after Binance deleted the warning messages on USTC and LUNC, and is also carrying the load with over 50% of LUNC burns since the crash.
How fitting would it be if $LUNC had a historic pump on the 1 year anniversary of the crash. Let’s make it happen! Smash the like button if you want to see it happen!💎🤲🏻 #Crypto #Binance #LUNC pic.twitter.com/8CzdAFcwD1— Mr. Diamondhandz1💎 (@MrDiamondhandz1) February 2, 2023
Can USTC and LUNC Come Back to Life?
The development is just in time for the LUNC Army, as many members of this active community are voting on the USTC repeg proposal. As USTC and ‘USTC repeg’ are both trending on Twitter, the LUNC community expects the USTC to be re-pegged shortly, while intensified Terra Luna Classic (LUNC) burns would help sustain its liquidity.
At press time, ranked #158, USTC is priced at $0.025, according to CoinGecko. On the other hand, the crashed protocol’s native currency, LUNC, trades at $0.00017287, recording a slighter increase of 2.7% in the last 24 hours. Last but not least, Terra’s forked version LUNA gained 5.6% and trades at $2.14, ranking just outside the TOP 100 by global market cap.

Is UST Restitution Group Going to Take Revenge?
The possibility of reviving the perilously crashed altcoin LUNC heavily depends on the community’s burning efforts. Several YouTubers and crypto influencers have contributed to the cause, while the biggest contributor is the leading crypto exchange Binance, tied to over 50% $LUNC burns.
While the LUNC community constantly organizes burning events, there’s also a group on Discord aiming for Do Kwon’s head. The UST Restitution Group shares ideas on where the embattled entrepreneur could be, with the latest theories suggesting a getaway to Serbia.
What @Stablekwon tried to create was on its way to becoming a reality, but bad actors associated with fiat brought $LUNA down, @SBF_FTX using other people's funds. Do really had everyone's best interests at heart, and the OG's know this. I'll be backing him again.$ust #LUNC pic.twitter.com/rZnQSDpsZJ— Chris 🌘 (@Chris_CDC) January 30, 2023
On the Flipside
- Despite the community’s claims that the downtrodden crypto entrepreneur Do Kwon is no longer on the project, Su Zhu believes that Kwon is ‘constantly working’ on the forked version of Terra’s blockchain, Terra 2.0.
- Some crypto traders argue that an algorithmic mechanism won’t work on the already-failed algorithmic stablecoin. Instead, there should be enough liquidity to peg the stablecoin, while in every other case, it creates additional selling pressure on Terra Luna Classic (LUNC).
Why You Should Care
LUNC still has a vast community, even after most investors backing off due to one of the most dramatic breakdowns in crypto history. In May 2022, the entire Terra (LUNA) network crashed, shredding to pieces both the UST stablecoin and Terra (LUNA) token.
