LUNA tries to save UST
Terra (LUNA) is the least deep in the red among the largest crypto today. That’s because the price took heavy blows last weekend and recovered slightly last night. That may have to do with the next announcement. The Luna Foundation Guard is trying to salvage UST’s peg to USD through a loan. Nevertheless, LUNA is still 2.6% in the minus with $61.2.
4/ As a result, the LFG Council has voted to execute the following:
– Loan $750M worth of BTC to OTC trading firms to help protect the UST peg.
– Loan 750M UST to accumulate BTC as market conditions normalize.
