On the 1-calendar year chart, the token has 8,794% in earnings. The venture has found quite a few partnerships. On the other hand, its main energy would seem to be its tokenomics.
Researcher and trader Flood Cash have in comparison Terra’s stablecoin UST with Tether, USD Coin, DAI, to discussed LUNA’s tokenomics. In accordance to Flood Cash, component of the token’s supply need to be burned with just about every UST minted on Terra’s ecosystem.
Tokens with burn mechanisms and deflationary strain have noticed incredible appreciation during this cycle. Binance native token BNB and PancakeSwap’s CAKE amongst them. As the researcher reported, $1 of UST minted equals $1 of LUNA burned.
With a market cap estimated at $1.87 billion, UST is in the top 5 stablecoins powering DAI, Binance USD, and USDC with Tether in the highest positions. Flood Capital expects UST to increase in adoption and desire. Thus, the token’s offer will be decreased. The researcher said:
UST is presently the 5th largest stable coin with a mcap about $1.87b and ~$100m each day investing volume, it has finished this with only 7 trade listings. The Luna ecosystem has created substantial demand for UST with no significant listings, this implies very clear solution market healthy.
UST Demand Leads To LUNA’s Appreciation
Even further information from Flood Funds implies need for UST has skyrocketed from January 25th to April 25th. For the duration of this time period, UST’s supply has absent from considerably less than $500 million to the present stages. On normal, the stablecoin has grown by $18 million per day.

Therefore $18m truly worth of Luna currently being burned. I hope this to speed up with extra protocol releases and cross chain composability with Columbus-5.

Firms like Apple and Exxon, renowned for their share buyback applications have bought again ~20-25% of their shares above 5-10 several years! Luna is undertaking all those exact same numbers in 100-125 days.
As demonstrated in the chart under, the token could run out of “liquid coins” in close to 122 times if UST demand continues to improve.
The researcher expects far more tasks to be launch on Terra’s ecosystem and attainable additional listings of UST in important exchanges. In accordance to the co-founder of Terra Do Kwon, UST’s sector cap could strike $10 billion by finish of 2021. Flood Funds stated:
The Luna ecosystem has just genuinely started out with only 2 big applications, yet this has induced the development of more than 1.5b UST in the earlier 3 months. As Luna continues to bring in builders, new protocols and UST desire will explode, we are however early.
