However, the past 24 hours have been positive for LUNA. The new digital currency has surged up to 100% to retest the $11.50 price level, from about $6.
At the time of filing this report, Terra (LUNA) is trading at $9.09, with about a 40% price upsurge in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
What Triggered Terra (LUNA) Resurgence?
Terra (LUNA) was triggered for a huge upward trend after the Terra team announced on Twitter that it’s working to fix issues associated with the token airdrop.
The announcement came about in response to several complaints received from Terra Classic (LUNC) holders who received fewer LUNA tokens from the airdrop than they were due.
Terra team tweeted, “Attention LUNA airdrop recipients. We are aware that some have received less LUNA from the airdrop than expected & are actively working on a solution. More information will be provided when we have gathered all of the data, so stay tuned.”
