$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. 馃憞 Image
@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...

It was arrogance and pride that got me to put 100% of my liquid capital into the #terra ecosystem.

No one knows EVERYTHING no matter how smart.

I will diversify in the future.

4. SCALE- Others are saying that leverage was the problem. It was not. The peg was. (26/33)
Leverage is a powerful skill set that can be used in a wise way.

I didn't even get liquidated.

I was able to get out of that position and even send 6figs to friends and family that was trying to get out of their leveraged positions. (27/33)
I wouldn't have been able to do that if I had not used leverage to begin with.

It's a skill that took a life time to develop.

I'm not throwing it away.

My GROUND ZERO friends are incredible.

Many are business people who blew up and came back multiple times (28/33)

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 馃У
(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)

$DJED vs $UST, a thread 馃У猬囷笍

With the crash of $UST / $LUNA, unsurprisingly, much doubt has been cast on #algorithmic stablecoins. #Cardano is launching its own #stablecoin as most of us know - $DJED, which is already on testnet, but how is it different? 馃
2/ $UST and $LUNA could be burned/minted in exchange for the other such that $UST = $USD, theoretically; one of the dangers here was that as $LUNA price dropped, more would have to be minted to maintain the peg - leading to the dreaded 鈥渄eath spiral"
3/ The algorithm in place to restore the peg couldn't do so at a faster pace than it was dropping, within the contract and blockchain parameters in the #Terra ecosystem, which included caps on on-chain withdrawals, among other contingencies and reserves

My personal reflections on the $Luna $UST collapse.

This is a post-mortem from the perspective of a retail pleb from crypto class of 2021 during arguably the most hellish week of crypto history馃寫


#Luna #UST #Terra #Crypto #Cryptocurrency
I considered myself a relatively conservative investor. I had exposure to $Luna and $UST but knowing the risks of algo stablecoins, I made it a daily routine to check the important indicators:

1. Anchor deposits and yield reserve 馃彟
2. Top aUST wallets 馃泤
3. Curve pools 馃毎

All the signs were there:

1.Anchor鈥檚 UST deposits started decreasing since 8 May and accelerating.

2.A top UST holder has been sending UST to CEXs aggressively.

3.The % of UST in Curve pools has been increasing, means less liquidity for exit out of UST.

D铆a 14 #CocoGames

Con todo lo que ha sucedido estos d铆as en el mundo cripto: la bajada de Bitcoin, el desplome de #Terra y #LUNA..., muchas personas me han preguntado sobre las p茅rdidas y su efecto en la Declaraci贸n de la Renta
Abro 馃У
Que entiende Hacienda por p茅rdidas y ganancias patrimoniales (Art. 33 Ley IRPF): "Variaci贸n en el valor del patrimonio del contribuyente que se ponga de manifiesto con ocasi贸n de cualquier alteraci贸n en la composici贸n de aquel".
Vamos por partes para entenderlo bien: lo fundamental es la ALTERACI脫N en nuestro patrimonio, es decir, tenemos que vender, donar o permutar bienes o derechos (en este caso criptomonedas).

An inescapable conclusion must sync in.

#Terra, #Luna, and #UST are built on a fundamentally flawed architecture. This is a systemic failure which is clear and undeniable.

No rational ground can be presented to sustain the existence of the architecture in its current form.
The only potential way to fix this, is (a) stopping the entire system, (b) carefully examine it, (c) *solve the broken parts*, and (d) consider restarting *only once a viable solution is found*.
If instead of repeatedly and arbitrarily restarting this deadly roller coaster, *#Terra team would spend some time thinking hard what the most viable solution might be*, preparing carefully before restarting it, the ecosystem could perhaps recover some value in the long term.

Consequences outside #terra after $luna collapse.

Thread 馃У
1/ There were a lot of words spoken about $UST / $Luna / #Terra collapse, but can we evaluate the total damage to the DeFi space?
2/ Besides the complete wipe of ~$50b chain a lot of protocols outside #terra were affected as well.

Some reflections from investing in the $LUNA $UST debacle. 馃У馃憞 1/16

DISCLOSURE: I'm a moron who lost a metric-ton of capital this week on a project currently circling the drain to $0.00, so read & heed at your own peril.鈽狅笍
#Diversification isn't sexy, but can help you live 2 fight another day

Diversify by:
-asset class (stonks, gold, crypto, stable)
-account (margin, IRA, Roth, multi-wallet)
-strategy (stake, LP, leverage, hedge)

Concentration can get you to the moon faster but far less often.
3/ #TradFi money managers often have both a "Core & Satellite" position where:

Core = strategic (longer-term buy & hold)
Satellite = tactical (trading shorter term moves)

In between tactical moves, low-yielding stable plays or boring LP's are better than riding crazy delta down

Absolute madness coming out of the #Terra ecosystem this week. I won鈥檛 pretend that I foresaw the #Luna crash coming, but it did prove the point I鈥檝e been making recently about how #Bitcoin is money, not an investment.

A lot of people were thrilled when @LFG_org announced Bitcoin purchases to help stabilize the peg of the #ust stablecoin.

But it was always in LFG鈥檚 plan to sell its BTC when it felt it was needed. Now people are mad because LFG鈥檚 BTC liquidation crashed the market.
Bitcoin is the best money the world has ever had. But that鈥檚 all it is.

In other words, if your business or project doesn鈥檛 create lasting value in and of itself, trying to self-validate by latching onto Bitcoin won鈥檛 keep the music from stopping eventually.

JUST IN: #DoKwon submits a revival plan for #Terra including resetting the network ownership to 1B tokens. Maybe it's not game over for #Luna just yet? 馃憞馃У
@stablekwon proposes to establish a new chain, resetting the supply to 1B tokens. The priority is to preserve the Terra ecosystem community, which is the primary source of value for Terra.
The new chain is to be community run, i.e. the distribution of the new token is to be airdropped to community participants, and none allocated to #TerraformLabs. Check the proposed distribution here.

My proposal for a sensible way to move forward for the @terra_money community and #LUNATICs.

$LUNA $UST $ANC #terra

1/ I think we can quite confidently say at this point that the $UST Peg isn't going to be restored to $1. We entered the tail end of the death spiral in which $LUNA is being minted at an increasingly exponential pace and approaching zero and being delisted from CEXs.
2/ That being said, there is still tremendous value in the $LUNA ecosystem (the infrastructure and the community of #LUNATics and its users) that should be salvaged in order to rebuild what we started. Improving upon what we learned and making it better.

1/ A 馃У for founders in light of the recent crypto market and #Terra implosion

- Crypto Prices
- Liquidity
- Fundraising Landscape
- GTM Strategy
On Crypto Prices
- Crypto correlates to growth equities. As macro conditions worsened past few months (war, inflation), equities got hammered. Crypto, especially alts, is high beta (higher gain/loss)
- Crypto got extra hammered since LFG sold billions of BTC to keep UST peg
- Expect to not see substantial crypto price appreciation until we get better macro outlook. ETH for Merge looking very tasty at these prices.
- Crypto shouldn't correlate to equities, but most investors treat crypto as a 'risk-on' asset class; therefore it does

Let's look at some basic #TA for $LUNA shall we?
The purpose is to see if there were any signs before the bottom fell out on $UST on May 9th 2022 (UTC).

Before we do so, let me first state that I completely recognize that hindsight is 20/20....

Also, our brains are really good at recognizing patterns even when there aren't any.

I want to reiterate too, that I do not believe #TA can be effectively used to predict the future...especially black swan events.


Things rarely happen in isolation. Humans are messy creatures. We leave clues, even when we don't mean to.

And the charts always reveal those clues.

So I just wanted to explore if there were any left before the #Terra ecosystem collapsed.

Resumen de #LUNA, la criptomoneda de la blockchain #Terra que se hundi贸 y perdi贸 el 99% de su valor cayendo desde una capitalizaci贸n de mercado de $44 mil millones y un precio ATH por moneda de $119.5, a menos de $2 mil millones de capitalizaci贸n y un precio $0.69? 馃槺


Para que todos los que lean este hilo puedan entender lo que pas贸 con la criptomoneda #LUNA y porqu茅 se hundi贸 como el Titanic, primero debemos saber lo que son las monedas estables o Stablecoins, como se clasifican, para que fueron creadas y como funcionan:

驴Qu茅 es una moneda estable o #Stablecoin?

Es una criptomoneda que se emite a trav茅s de una #blockchain y que tiene como garant铆a/colateral dinero FIAT, materias primas y/o otros instrumentos financieros. Esto con el prop贸sito de mantener una paridad 1:1 con el d贸lar #USD.

Real world analogy of what happened to #LUNA...

1/ Once upon a time, someone came along, let's call him Do.. and he said "Let me start a new country". I shall call it #TERRA because my country will have digital land

And he did.
2/ But like any country, Do needed a currency. Since the whole world (off chain) used USD, he said. Let me make my own currency, #UST. It will be worth 1:1 to USD and therefore he pegged to this currency and #UST was born
3/ But #UST was worthless because his country had no value. It was just a fake land sitting in the Internet. So Do said "I shall raise money for my country". And to do that I will issue a token called #LUNA and tell people they're all going to the moon with me

My thoughts on $Terra , $Luna & $UST, whether it's a good time to make money or bites the dust :
#LUNA #UST #TerraUSD #Terra #Cryptocrash #cryptocurrency #cryptotrading #LUNAtics

/This is my first ever thread on Twitter so give it some support :)
1. Luna fell from $96 to $0.89 in just 20 days. Can you guys imagine? This wasn't an ordinary coin. It was under top#10 in the entire world.. This could be a life changing trade. Already 3x from $0.89 which is the latest bottom... Image
2. There's a nice downside risk but could be huge huge profits if it played out..
