Terra (LUNA) Prices Fall Below $5
On Binance, LUNA spot prices have reached a low of $2.70. Meanwhile, the LUNA perpetual contract rate was in the red, and the 24-hour transaction volume had surpassed $25 billion. Anchor Protocol, Terra’s most important DeFi protocol, has seen its total value locked fall nearly 90% in the last week, to around $2 billion.
According to some reports, LFG’s proposal to raise more than $1 billion in capital from Jump Crypto, Celsius, Jane Street, and Almeda fell through. The LFG sought to raise capital to balance the Terra-UST relationship. LUNA was supposed to be purchased at a 50% discount with a one-year lockup period.
Meanwhile, South Korean exchanges such as Upbit and Bithumb have issued investment warnings due to the large price fluctuations of LUNA.
Following the failure of the funding, Do Kwon stated in a tweet that the only way forward is to absorb the stablecoin supply that wishes to exit before UST can begin to repeat.
The Terra (LUNA) price may fall as Do Kwon’s and the LFG’s proposals to support the Terra economy and UST’s peg to the US dollar have failed.
