LUNA 2.0 Gains 70% from All-Time Low in Nine Days, UST Up 400%, LUNC Gains $208M. Can This Trend Be Maintained?

Following the crash of LUNA (renamed LUNC), the old native token of the Terra ecosystem, a new blockchain was launched, which gave birth to a new token known as LUNA 2.0.

After the launch of the Terra 2.0 blockchain, the digital token LUNA 2.0 opened as high as $30 on Bybit exchange. However, the digital asset soon dropped massively by 88% to $3.5 and resurged to settle around $6, but it later lost its footing to record its all-time low of $1.62.

The good news is that the token has started showcasing signs of recovery. It’s worth noting that LUNA 2.0 has gained 70% since dropping to its all-time price low. Despite the positive trend, the cryptocurrency is still trading far from the launch price of $30

At the time of press, LUNA 2.0 is trading at $2.40, with a relatively 9% price upsurge in the last 24 hours, per data provided by CoinMarketCap.

Has LUNA 2.0 Major Recovery Started?

Expectedly, the massive fall of the digital token prompted many investors to start selling as faith in the crypto project disappears.

Howbeit, the market has started to re-establish itself since the recovery started moving during the past week. As a result, the liquidations have begun to level down, resulting in a dramatic increase in the price of Terra (LUNA 2.0).
