  • Relaunched Terra 2.0 chain is undergoing a major rebranding and development in a bid to reclaim its lost position.
  • Terra has launched Terra Docs, the official documentation for the project and rebranded its website.
  • SOLID, an over-collateralized and fully decentralized soft-pegged stablecoin has also been launched on the Terra 2.0 chain.
  • The growing interest in Terra 2.0 has helped the LUNA tokens to rally, hitting a new high at $7.06.

Project Review

Terra is a decentralized, open-source blockchain that hosts a vibrant ecosystem of decentralized applications (dApps) and offers cutting-edge developer tools. Since its famous implosion, Terra has relaunched, with the original chain going by Terra Classic.

Terra 2.0 (LUNA) and Terra Classic (LUNC) are now two separate chains, operating independently of each other. Terra 2.0 is being run by Terraform Labs, while Terra Classic is run by the community, who assumed governance of the chain after the fork.

The native token, Terra (LUNA) was the network’s staking and governance asset. So, how has Terra performed since its implosion in May?

Recent Developments

In a bid to reclaim the position it once held, Terra has become one of the most actively developing projects. In the last week, Terra has passed a proposal to conduct its second airdrop of over 19 million LUNA tokens until October 14.

Terra has also launched Terra Docs, the official documentation for the project and rebranded its website. The Terra Docs was created using Code Hike, a ground-breaking visualization technology used to display the underlying code of Terra.

There are also basic developer tutorials within Terra Docs, teaching people how to build on the blockchain. Developers can now easily learn how to set up a Terrain, mint Non-Fungible tokens (NFTs), and build a CW20 token factory using the Docs.

Random Earth Version 2, an NFT marketplace for the Terra ecosystem also launched on September 14. The launch gives TFM NFT, the first decentralized exchange aggregator on Terra 2.0, more data to work with.

In line with NFTs, Terra recently launched Terrarity to give users a complete and detailed analysis of marketplaces and NFT collections. With Terrarity, users can check the rarity scores of NFTs in their portfolio, on sale, or in a collection.

Launched without a decentralized stablecoin like its original chain, Terra has now gotten a new stablecoin, $SOLID. Developed by Capapault, SOLID is an over-collateralized and fully decentralized soft-pegged stablecoin on Terra.

Price Updates

September has been one of the best months for Terra (LUNA) since its hard fork. Opening the month at $1.8, LUNA rallied to hit a high of $7.06.

Despite the recent CPI report and the arrest warrant of Do Kwon forcing a major sell-off, LUNA still trades better than it opened the month. LUNA now trades at $2.87, gaining 4.9% over the last 24 hours.

Future Events

There are also several projects in development for the Terra ecosystem. Terra users could get a new derivatives protocol that introduces new asset classes in decentralized finance (DeFi).

Zodiac Protocol was recently unveiled as a project that would allow LUNA holder split their Liquidity Provider tokens (LUNAX) into principle and yield components. Zodiac Protocol will operate in a similar way as Prism Protocol did on the original Terra chain.

On the Flipside

  • The weight of the May implosion still hangs over Terra, with South Korean authorities issuing an arrest warrant for Terra’s founder Do Kwon.
  • Just hours after the announcement, South Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced plans to revoke Kwon’s passport.

Community

Since the implosion, the Terra community has been divided into two. Community members of Terra 2.0 refer to themselves as Lunatics, after the ticker of the ecosystem’s token.

Lunatics still maintain their trust in the project. One user, @lunatic317, wrote about Terra 2.0;
