Can Terra Classic Take Flight Again? LUNC and USTC Eye Takeoff with Bold New Plan

Terra Lunc Classic

The Terra Classic community is rallying behind a potentially transformative proposal that aims to breathe new life into the network and its native tokens, LUNC and USTC. This proposal, submitted by developer Till Ziegler, outlines a series of upgrades designed to bolster the network’s functionality, security, and ultimately, its token values.

Upgrade Highlights:

  • IBC-Hooks and Package Forward Middleware (PFM): This feature, co-developed with Genuine Labs, allows the integration of Decentralized Applications (dApps) that leverage IBC-Hooks, specifically targeting Enterprise DAOs. This paves the way for a richer and more robust network ecosystem.
  • End-to-End (E2E) and Interchain Testing Suite: Again, in collaboration with Genuine Labs, this suite streamlines the testing process, ensuring smoother network operation and minimizing the risk of future hiccups.
  • Enhanced Security Measures: The upgrade addresses a critical bug related to transaction processing, along with other security improvements spearheaded by Ziegler, significantly strengthening the overall security posture of the Terra Classic network.

Community Backing Fuels the Fire:

The Terra Classic community has consistently demonstrated its unwavering commitment to the network’s revival. In February 2024, a community-driven proposal to burn 800 million USTC from the Risk Harbor multisig wallet was approved, leading to a 25% surge in token price. This collective action serves as a testament to the community’s dedication to fostering growth within the Terra Classic ecosystem.

Potential Price Impact

While the proposal announcement triggered an initial price increase for LUNC, the broader market correction following Bitcoin’s recent all-time high has tempered these gains. However, the ongoing focus on development improvements, coupled with unwavering community support, suggests that both LUNC and USTC prices may still experience a rally in the near future.

If approved by validators and the community, the Terra Classic chain is scheduled for a temporary halt on March 25, 2024, to facilitate the implementation of the proposed upgrade. This proactive approach towards network upgrades and token value restoration by the Terra Classic community is a positive indicator for the future. The proposed upgrade, if implemented, has the potential to significantly enhance the network’s functionality, security, and attractiveness to developers, potentially paving the way for a brighter future for LUNC and USTC.


Market OutLook

At the time of writing (March 7, 2024), the global crypto market faces a downturn, sitting at $1.11 trillion, down 10.08% in the last 24 hours. LUNC, currently priced at $0.00019124, follows the trend with a 9.16% dip. However, it boasts a healthy 24-hour trading volume of $214.42 million.

USTC, ranked significantly lower at 236th by market cap, mirrors the market slump with a 3.93% decrease, currently trading at $0.03605942. While both tokens face short-term volatility, their ongoing development efforts and community backing paint a potentially brighter long-term picture.
