More Problems For Do Kwon

Terra’s collapse was a big blow to the overall cryptocurrency market. It led to several financial complications for crypto firms and organizations. Nonetheless, Terra made a comeback with a new LUNA token, while keeping the older versions with the tag of Classic.
This recent development is another blow to an already struggling Terra community. They hoped for a miracle as the tokens were pumped last week. However, the new LUNA token has gone down by over 17% over the previous 24 hours. LUNA Classic has also shed over 20% of its value in the meantime. On the other hand, TerraUSD was never able to restore its peg to $1. Nonetheless, the red notice indicates that the coming days will be critical for the Terra ecosystem and its founding members.
