We noticed something shady going on and once again we are going to call it out.

Based on our analysis, we have reasons to believe @staderlabs is not acting in good faith again. They were previously called out for showing "fake"/higher returns back in Terra Classic.

@staderlabs 2/15
This morning we got kicked out of the active set by a new validator (North Star) and we tweet about it here -

Long story short, @staderlabs redelegated 121k $LUNA to North Star pushing them into the active set.
@staderlabs 3/15
It sounds perfectly fine until you look closer at the details. The delegation to North Star is way oversized and not balanced/spread out evenly with the other validators that has an average of 33k. This screenshot was taken in the morning, it looks even more ridiculous now.

Holy! I just discovered another crazy thing happening with the some of the active validators.

I started by looking at the validators charging 20% commission which is pretty high considering that most charges 5-10%.

Something then caught my attention...

Thread ๐Ÿงต Image
Both Flipside and Angel Protocol have legitimate reasons to charge higher commissions (bounties and charities).

I have written about KingSuper and Autism Staking -

Now let's focus on Luna Whale, Lunatic Validator and Long Live Luna.
All 3 validators have almost identical setup/configurations:
- No logo
- Generic Luna related names
- 20% commission
- Max commission change rate of 20%
- No website/social media presence/email contact

I started to suspect that someone might be exploiting the system... ImageImageImage

The $LUNA crash was particularly hard on #LUNAtics because many had most of their net worth on #Terra

It was also felt across the #Cosmos because $UST was a base pair on Osmosis, Sifchain & Crescent pools

A quick primer on Modern Portfolio Theory in that context ๐Ÿงต
That thread was actually inspired by that honest & candid post by @larry0x, which I then saw echoed by many other smart people in the Terra community
@larry0x Modern portfolio theory (MPT) is a theory on how investors can construct portfolios to maximise expected return based on a given level of market risk

It involves several useful concepts which I'll do my best to explain here without using the underlying mathematical model

1/10 #LUNAtics, I would like to bring these 2 validators (KingSuper and Autism Staking) to your attention as they have increased their commission significantly.

Thread ๐Ÿงต
2/10 KingSuper had 0% commission and attracted lots of people to redelegate to them. A few days ago, they decided to increase their commission from 0% to 10% without informing the community/their delegators.
3/10 I made this conclusion because I could not find any chat/social media platform on their website. Happy to correct if proven wrong.

Using larry's computation/assumption:
9,850,000 * $6.44 * 0.12 * 0.1 / 12 = $63,434 a month

1) Let me explain what @FatManTerra is really doing. When there is a former top 10 project with a lot of influence and following that irritates other top projects in the space and seems miles ahead in terms of attracting developers and talent.
2) When it seems to suddenly all collapse in on itself and bring the rest of the space down in a big tumble, what do you want to do? Do you want to support its developers and try to help it recover? Or do you want to kill it for good so it's out of the picture?
3) Right now Terra users lost a lot of money. A boatload even. Many people are blaming @stablekwon singlehandedly for their losses when he is just one person in a large community of builders. These same people also worshipped him pre-depeg in an almost cult-like fashion.

Bang or Bust? ๐Ÿค”

A short thread (5 tweets) of the surprising #LUNA performance since listing ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡
1/ The much anticipated #LUNA 2.0 airdrop took place this weekend & damn was it interesting ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ #LUNC remains the the old version of LUNA and performed well over the weekend pumping more than 50% Image
2/ #LUNAtics in the community have been somewhat negative & unsupportive of LUNA and the fork. Some have remained faithful and believed that the fork and airdrop would hopefully make them whole again after the bloody crash... Image

1/ Block 1 of the brand new Terra blockchain (with a chain_id of โ€œPhoenix-1โ€) has officially been produced at 06:00 AM UTC on May 28th, 2022!

Congratulations to the #LUNAtic community on this expeditious feat of collaboration ๐ŸŽ‰
2/ Those who were eligible for the $LUNA airdrop can view their wallet balances on the new chain by selecting the โ€œPhoenix-1โ€ network in their Terra Station browser extension.
3/ Users can do multiple things with their liquid $LUNA, including staking it on Terra Station to their preferred validator(s) to earn rewards & participate in governance decisions, using it on dApps upon launch, or trading it on an exchange.

1/ Yesterday, we said Terra 2.0 is coming. Tomorrow, it arrives.

The community has been working around the clock to coordinate the new chainโ€™s launch. Subject to potential change, we expect Terra to go live on May 28th, 2022 at around 06:00 AM UTC.
2/ To reach this point so quickly speaks volumes about our incredible community of users, validators, developers, and exchange partners ๐ŸŒŽ

Weโ€™d like to thank each and every one of you for making this possible ๐Ÿค

It started with Terra $LUNA ๐Ÿ”ฅ

But instead of ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒ–, I flew too close to the sun and came crashing back down to ๐ŸŒ

At the end of 2021 with my portfolio the highest it had ever been, I got cocky, I showed my mum my number and she urged me to "take some out"...
But why would I do that? $LUNA to 1000 was not a meme. We were just getting started...

This episode has been a valuable learning experience ๐Ÿค”

Obviously I have regrets. But without going through this death spiral, I wouldn't have fully appreciated...
1. The necessity of sensible risk management: don't put all my eggs in one basket.

2. Taking profits into cash money in a traditional bank account.

Even if I sold at the 2021 ATH, even if I had withdrawn to my bank, I know I would have gone back into $LUNA when it dipped 50%

1/ Recently, bad actors have been capitalizing on Terra-related events by purchasing $LUNA & posting fake proposals on Station with phishing sites quoted in the link. These proposals claim to lead users to a preview of Terra 2.0 & dApps launched by us - which is not the case.
2/ In addition, we have also seen a rapid increase in spam proposals as the discount on $LUNA made it economically cheap to post anything one desired.
3/ To prevent scams/spam & protect users, props will be added to an allowlist (visible after clicking on โ€œGovernanceโ€ on Station) at this point while we try to find a more sustainable solution in preventing these types of props from being posted on Terraโ€™s Governance platform.

#Terra did not spend their $BTC reserve for buy-back, like they said it did. It went to a cold wallet. To confirm for yourself, do the following:

1. Google LFG BTC address, which is shown below:

2. around 28k BTC was sent to:

3. Around 42k BTC was sent to another address:

4. Quickly transferred to:

Hi #Lunatics I've had a chance to digest the @TerraBuildersU proposal and OG Holders/users aren't getting a fair shake. Somewhat of an olive branch that whale Anchor wallets aren't being included, but not including $UST in LP positions is pretty terrible.
Also no transparency from any of the Builders on how they plan to airdrop/snapshot holders of Terra Alt tokens. @Cephii1 proposal to capture overall TVL would be much more accurate way to judge users actual economic share of network pre-attack.
At this point I'm really looking at the current proposal as more of an ICO. If you still have any UST or Luna on chain you will get some V2 that will be liquid, but to capture anywhere close to your prior share you will need to put in new funds.

Last week, $60 billion dollars of marketcap was wiped out in crypto.

This is the story of one man's stablecoin, that mutated into a monstrosity that collapsed the entire ecosystem and caused a massive downturn in crypto with it.

This is the story of @stablekwon and the Terra
@stablekwon 1/ So what really happened?

I'm guessing most of you still don't really know.

Yeah, you got a soundbite you repeat so you don't sound dumb, but cmon.
@stablekwon 2/ While the collapse blindsided most people, some did see it coming

While the #LUNAtics were having a big old party, some saw the giant lie at the heart of the Terra

a few weirdos and outsiders saw it early on and tried to warn everyone

We'll meet them later @freddieraynolds

The Terra Ecosystem Revival Plan 2 is the closest we have gotten so far for fair compensation for all stakeholders.

The key takeaways are:

โ€ข Fork Luna without $UST
โ€ข Airdrop to compensate #LUNAtics
โ€ข Staking rewards - token inflation

Here are some suggested changes ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡
Changes in Token Distribution

Focus on people who have held $UST through the event, rather than people who bought at the bottom. Suggested By @WestieCapital

Same mechanics for people who held $luna vs. people who bought at the bottom.

Multiple snapshots are needed to evaluate
Changes in Token Distribution

Pre-deg snapshot should represent ALL of a wallet's TVL including Terra Alts.
Suggested By @Cephii1

People who have invested in the Terra Ecosystem are most likely among the most loyal member of the community.

Some highlights that you need to know about the latest announcement updates from @stablekwon about Terra Ecosystem Revival Plan 2

$LUNA is more than $UST

Read the full proposal here ๐Ÿ‘‡โ€ฆ

@stablekwon 1/ Fork Terra chain into a new chain WITHOUT the algo-stablecoin

The old chain to be called Terra Classic (Token Luna Classic - LUNC)
The new chain - Terra (Token Luna - LUNA).
Both chains will co-exist

This is regarded as the time machine bringing Terra back before the crash
@stablekwon 2/ New Luna will be airdropped across:

โ–ช๏ธ Luna Classic stakers,
โ–ช๏ธ Luna Classic holders,
โ–ช๏ธ Residual UST holders,
โ–ช๏ธ and Essential app developers of Terra Classic

$UST / $LUNA death spiral is one of the biggest disasters in the crypto history.

Who is guilty?

@stablekwon? @LFG_org? VCs? Apes who overinvested without understanding the mechanism of the system?

All of them. But it's also me. And maybe you too.

Read my confession. ๐Ÿ‘‡
@stablekwon @LFG_org I first learned how $LUNA and $UST worked after the crypto crash in May 2021.

I was a degen farmer then and I had a fraction of my stablecoin portfolio in UST on @mirror_protocol but I wasn't really aware of UST mechanics. I thought it was just another exotic stablecoin.
@stablekwon @LFG_org @mirror_protocol When crypto prices plummeted $LUNA MC suddenly became lower than $UST MC.

It clearly undermined the faith in UST and could have led to the bank run.

By then we had already seen many other algo-stables failing. UST could have been another one...

If #Juno becomes the new home of the #Terra dApps, it's likely that some Terra's validators will look to join the active set & #LUNAtics will need to figure out where to delegate ; so I thought it'd be interesting to look at the revenue of the validators on #Juno ๐Ÿงต
(If you're not sure why Juno is a compelling host candidate for the Terra projects, this thread on CosmWasm might be interesting)
The average validator revenue on Juno is around $33,000 per month (mid-May 2022, Bitcoin around $30,000).

It was around $48,000 in early May with Bitcoin at $38,000, and $200,000 at Juno all-time (early March)

7 months as a โ€œTerra $UST Trutherโ€

My longest ๐Ÿงตdocumenting commentary in the months before collapse of this $60B project. Please seek professional help and do not read on if you are still dealing with losses. It will get better.

(Nov '21)
Many have asked what motivated me to relentlessly criticize $UST here on Twitter for so long. I could point to my experience investing in similar projects (that failed) giving me a firm view the model was doomed, or maybe even this anecdote:

(Dec '21)
Overall though I believe my core motivation was the belief that getting stablecoins right is what will allow a broader group of people to derive benefits from crypto's technological achievements. Also Do Kwon called me stupid + [redacted]...
