Terra is a decentralized, open-source blockchain protocol that emerged from what’s now known as the Terra Classic blockchain. Due to a bank run in May 2022 that de-pegged the Terra Classic USD stablecoin (UST)from its $1 value. The original Terra (LUNA) is being rebranded to Terra Classic, and a new chain is being created with the original name, Terra.
As an infrastructure, Terra purports to be among the fastest and most decentralized blockchains, with speeds comparable to similar Layer 1 competitors such as Solana, Algorand, and Avalanche.
What is LUNA?
LUNA is the Terra protocol’s native staking token. It is used for governance and in mining. Users stake Luna to validators who record and verify transactions on the blockchain in exchange for rewards from transaction fees.
A new Terra
On May 25, 2022, Terra Classic users passed governance proposal 1623, which outlined the genesis of a new Terra blockchain.
The new Terra chain will continue to operate without the UST stablecoin. Previous LUNA owners may be eligible to receive a LUNA airdrop (called a “genesis distribution”) at the time of the new rollout. Users can find their airdropped Luna by viewing the same wallet address that was present during either snapshot and switching their Terra Station network to the phoenix-1 mainnet.
The phoenix-1 Terra mainnet launched on May 27, 2022.

Investors who held LUNA and UST prior to the UST de-peg should have received airdrops of LUNA 2.0 in varying amounts. However, many received less than expected. The company announced on Twitter that it is “actively working on a solution.”
Meanwhile, anyone can buy $LUNA on Transak as our aim is to provide accessibility to most dApps and end-users. But it should be noted that the currency is experiencing volatility and investment should be done with caution.
