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.”

Data are now being collected to get around the issue with the airdrop distribution, according to the team of developers behind the project.
