Terra Network Upgrade to Introduce New Major Updates
On the 20th of July 2022, a proposal to upgrade the Terra blockchain, which will introduce three new updates went live for voting on Terra station.
The voting process lasted for a week. As expected, it gained the maximum support of the Terra community members.
According to the report, Prop 890 is a proposal that requires the Terra blockchain to be paused at a specific block height for nodes to update their software.

As stated in the proposal, the first update will enable the creation of vesting accounts via transactions to remove the limitations related to LUNA airdrop execution.
The second update is targeted at correcting a discrepancy that occurred during the launch of the new Terra blockchain. It’s said in the proposal that an exchange with the wallet address terra1chq5ps8yya004gsw4xz62pd4psr5hafe7kdt6d was incorrectly whitelisted during the launch of the new chain.
This implies that the update is centered on adjusting the vesting period for the Pre-Attack LUNC allocation for this wallet address.
The third and last update is to enable any user to send their vesting LUNA tokens to the community Pool via transaction.
