Airdropped LUNA Tokens To Unlock Soon; Mass Sell-Of Coming?

On May 26th, after the LUNA debacle, the old luna chain (now called LUNC) pivoted to a sister chain called LUNA 2.0. As part of the transition to the Terra ecosystem, new LUNA coins got airdropped to LUNA, UST (now called USTC), and aUST holders, based on the two snapshots outlined in the Terra Ecosystem Revival Plan. On November 24th, a few of these airdropped LUNA tokens are expected to get unlocked.

The Birth Of Terra LUNA 2.0

As a means to compensate the whole Terra community, Do Kwon and his internal team came up with the solution to airdrop their native staking token, LUNA, to all the users who held Terra coins both pre-attack and post-attack.

The amount of LUNA one would be eligible to receive was determined by the types of tokens the users held on the Terra Classic chain, the time period that they held these tokens for (based on Pre-Attack and Post-Attack snapshots), and the number of tokens held.

Vested LUNA To Unlock Soon

LUNA which was in vesting mode will begin to deposit in the user’s wallet at 6 am UTC on November 24th — in accordance with the Genesis LUNA airdrop timetables that the community had voted back in May of this year.

Due to the fact that all airdropped LUNA on a vesting schedule was staked at Terra’s Genesis, it must be undelegated for 21 days to become liquid. This helps the price to remain stable during the unlock, and not get impacted by a mass sell-off.
