The introduction of Terra’s stablecoin, TerraUSD (UST), being supported by a $1 billion Bitcoin reserve was the most interesting initiative that drove Terra’s TVL above $22 billion.

Unlike the other stablecoins supported by USD, UST’s native token, LUNA, is pegged to USD via a minting and burning mechanism. If value of a stablecoin drops under $1 per coin, UST may be traded for LUNA, which can then be created and traded for $1 USD, allowing investors to profit from arbitrage.

As the need for UST grows, LUNA tokens will continue to burn, rendering it a deflationary asset with an upward price trend.

What’s going on on-chain, according to Do Kwon, there are 73 overall projects on-chain now, with at minimum 87 more projects expected to start by the end of this year.
