Terra Blockchain Undergoes Rebirth Successfully with LUNA 2.0 Airdrop

Terra blockchain is back again with a new life. The new chain was launched on the mainnet at exactly 6 am UTC and is now producing blocks, according to DO Kwon, the CEO of Terraform Labs.

DO Kwon tweeted, “Pheonix-1 mainnet is now live and producing blocks – public node services, wallets and explorers should be going live shortly.”

The new chain aims to revive the Terra ecosystem after its algorithmic stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) and Terra (LUNA) imploded a few weeks ago. The massive crash of these tokens wiped out relatively $40 billion in the market, leaving teeming investors to lament.

Following the fiasco, the Terra team began to seek means for revival. Do Kwon later proposed the rebirth of the chain, which was massively supported via a governance vote. It took only a few days after the proposal was approved before another chain was deployed.

Now that the new blockchain has gone live, several applications have started to move there, including Astroport, Prism, RandomEarth, Spectrum, Nebula, Terraswap, Edge Protocol, and others.

LUNA 2.0 Tokens Airdrop

The most noteworthy aspect of the new chain is the much-awaited airdrop of LUNA 2.0 tokens to Terra stakeholders on the Classic (Old) chain.
