More About the LUNC Token 

What Is Luna Classic (LUNC)?

Luna Classic (LUNC) is the first native token of Terra blockchain released in August 2018. It existed before the launch of the new chain — now branded Terra (LUNA) — and works with the original code of the Terra ecosystem. The main function that the native token performed was to absorb the price deviation of the algorithmic stablecoin — $UST. The price of the UST stablecoin was pegged to the US dollar by minting and burning UST tokens to balance the supply and demand of the coin. In May 2022, UST lost its peg and collapsed. The UST stablecoin algorithm created trillions of LUNA tokens, fell into a hyperinflationary spiral, and reduced the value of the original LUNA token by 99%.

What is the difference between Terra (LUNA) and Terra Classic (LUNC)?

Both versions of the token have the right to exist as a result of the implementation of a proposal called Terra Ecosystem Revival Plan 2. The essence of the plan is to split the current blockchain through forking, which created a new chain in the ecosystem, preserving the previous version. According to the recovery plan, the existing chain and token have been rebranded as Terra Classic. The new LUNA tokens were airdropped to existing holders of LUNA and UST before the depeg and subsequent crash occurred.
