What is Terra?

Terra is a decentralised financial payment ecosystem that makes use of a basket of stablecoins that are stabilized via the use of the platform’s native crypto offering, “LUNA.” The ecosystem is geared towards the use of stablecoins for payment. As of December 2020, it has been used to facilitate around $300 billion worth of transactions for over 2 million users. LUNA can be earned through staking. It is the asset that powers Terra's DPoS (Delegated Proof of Stake) blockchain. It serves three primary functions: it allows users to participate in staking through delegating, it provides stability to the value of Terra stablecoins and it provides the platform’s validator nodes with various incentives for their time and effort.

Terra (LUNA) is the 11st largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $14,338,659,775. The current price of Terra is $35.66, which is -3.196% lower than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $37.37 and $35.32 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 18, 2021 05:10 UTC.

What to consider when buying Terra

Key considerations to weigh before you add LUNA to your portfolio:
  • Governance protocol: The Terra platform makes use of a DPoS protocol where users can stake their LUNA tokens in order to facilitate transactions. Also, by virtue of being a PoS blockchain, validators who have staked more LUNA tokens possess a better chance of mining the next block as compared to those who have fewer tokens invested in the platform.
  • Unique price volatility mechanism: Since LUNA stakers/holders are responsible for maintaining the security of the Terra ecosystem, there are certain price volatility risks that are associated with the cryptocurrency. This is primarily due to the fact that the protocol exchanges Terra stablecoins for LUNA at their determined exchange rate so as to balance out their values. Simply put, when demand is high, the platform’s native algorithm automatically sells Terra stablecoins. Conversely, when demand reduces, the algorithm buys Terra stablecoins in exchange for the system’s existing LUNA reserves, thereby mitigating any short-term volatility risks.
  • Fully functional ecosystem: Unlike a number of proposed blockchains that present highly attractive features on paper, the Terra ecosystem is already generating a lot of value for its users. Terra generates more revenue than almost any other blockchain, lagging only Bitcoin and Ethereum.
  • Backing and adoption: The Terra ecosystem was incubated by the Terra Alliance, a conglomerate consisting of 15 e-commerce companies based out of Korea as well as other parts of Southeast Asia. Furthermore, the Terra blockchain is being utilized by one of South Korea’s most popular payment apps, CHAI, which as of March 2021, facilitates around 100,000 transitions daily (worth around $1 million) and boasts a user base of more than 2.3 million users.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Terra, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of LUNA is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Terra or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
