History of LUNC
Terra Luna Classic was not always called by his name. Before May of 2022, the name of the same token was Terra Luna (LUNA), until the centralized body (Terraform Labs) ended up facing an operational crash.
With Terraform Labs facing a problem with the algorithm behind the stablecoin, TerraUSD (UST), the stablecoin started to lose its dollar peg.
Soon, the stablecoin’s value had plunged to the lowest levels ever and the entire Terraform Labs suffered because of it.
LUNA was also caught between all of this and its value also recorded a downtrend. Prior to the UST debacle, the value of LUNA was much higher than $100 but after the decline, things changed completely.
The token plunged below the $1 mark and had to go through a lot to make it back. It is important to mention that it wasn’t the fault of the UST or LUNA that resulted in losses for the investors.
Instead, it was Terraform Labs that is to be blamed for the losses. It did not manage its operations well which led to contagion and the entire market is still paying because of that.
With the downfall of the Silvergate, history seems to be repeating itself and the Terra investors have grown sensitive again.
With fears growing, investors have stopped buying the asset. Therefore, a great decline has been witnessed in the trading price of LUNC.
