What is TerraUSD (UST)?

Terra is USD is the famous "stabletoken" that lost its tie with the USD dollar and collapsed almost entirely in May 2022, wiping out $80bn worth of money like a massive avalanche. Established in 2019, the idea was actually pretty good: Build a system of stablecoins to support e-commerce uses. This worked well... until it did't. In May 2022, mass withdrawals of TerraUSD triggered a collapse of both Terra and its sister coin Luna, wiping out a record breaking $80 billion in the crypto markets.

Cryptohunt's Opinion

Our take on TerraUSD

Do your homework when considering stablecoins: Often they are not as stable as they want you to believe they are. That was certainly the case with TerraUSD, which we are definitely staying far away from. The founders have submitted a proposal for a v2 of the blockchain, which we think lacks all market confidence. Hopefully this collapse is going to bring change without, including transparancy about the inner workings of stablecoins.
Disclaimer: In full transparency, we originally liked the Terra-Luna idea, but said about the system: While the algorithmic stablecoin approach benefits scale, basing price stability on an inherently volatile underlying asset does give us some concern.

An honest experiment turned heartbreaking disaster for thousands of people within the crypto family. While there are still algo-stablecoins out there, many have adjusted their messaging and/or lost significant market share due to the fall of UST. Massive amounts of caution and research need to go into any future interactions with Terra2.0. NFA + Please DYOR
