About USTC – the TerraClassicUSD Token

TerraClassicUSD (USTC), formerly known as TerraUSD (UST), is a stablecoin that was part of the Terra blockchain platform. USTC was pegged to the US dollar, with the goal of maintaining a 1-to-1 ratio. The Terra blockchain allowed users to easily spend, save, trade, and exchange USTC.

Following the crash of the TerraLuna ecosystem in May 2022, the Terra blockchain underwent a hard fork and rebranding – the original blockchain became Terra Classic, and UST was renamed TerraClassicUSD (USTC). Terra Classic now supports various protocols, wallets, cross-chain transfers, decentralized exchanges, and NFT projects.
