The interest in Terra Classic might indicate that investors still believe the asset has a fighting chance in the crypto market after the Terra ecosystem collapsed as its algorithmic stablecoin de-pegged from the dollar.
LUNC receiving support from exchanges
Notably, the recovery of the Terra ecosystem began on a rough path after LUNA 2.0 suffered a massive price correction just an hour after its launch.
Although the general market is undergoing high price correction, LUNC is among the stand-out cases with extreme volatility. Analysts believe that the token’s lack of a defined fundamental value is fuelling the volatility.
With the significant interests, it can be assumed that investors searching for Terra Classic are hoping the token will transform into a meme coin as a gamble due to the lack of a use case.
It is also worth noting that the interest in the collapsed token had caught the attention of authorities like South Korea’s Financial Services Commission. The agency issued a warning to investors to desist from investing in Luna.
Finally, the Terra collapse reignited the regulation debate, with different jurisdictions enacting policies to govern the space. In South Korea, the country formed the first “Digital Assets Committee” that will be mandated with creating regulations and supervising the crypto industry.
