Terra platform was created in 2018 by Daniel Shin and Do Kwon. The pair’s motivation was a novel digital currency which would fit the current economy’s elasticity. Terra was conceived to be both stable-priced and driven by growth to attain price stability through a variable money supply, powered by unchanging mining enticements.
Terra is an algorithmic-based, decentralized, and investor profit sharing style stablecoin-generating system and platform comprising several stablecoins ($UST) and the native token Luna. Currently, Terra is among the top 10 cryptocurrencies with impressive numbers.

After having gone through an impulsive move up until mid-December 2021, a massive sell off saw a price drop before overshooting to the all-time high of $103.3400 on December 27. Since then the coin has started a correction trend with a 50%+ drop in price, 30% down in the last week, and an 18% drop within the last 24 hours expected to end the day at around $33.
Renowned traders are expecting the low price to max out at around $25 before an upward trend resumes. Increased borrowing, an injection of capital into yield reserves, and a rise in Bitcoin price are expected to see the price of Luna among other coins rise fueled by investor confidence.
