1/ The Columbus-5 mainnet deployment will be delayed ~3 weeks until a new block height of 4,724,000, roughly equivalent to the following times:

9/29 at 20:30 PST
9/30 at 03:30 UTC
9/30 at 12:30 KST
2/ No need to fret, as the goal is to implement some extra precautionary measures for the rollout of Terra’s most significant mainnet upgrade yet to ensure the smoothest launch possible.
3/ For some context, the Columbus-5 mainnet upgrade is massive.

Behind the scenes, numerous moving parts require attentive and thorough examination from multiple perspectives + reviews between TFL, eco partners, the community, and projects dependent on Terra applications.
4/ We can classify the reason for the slight delay into 3 primary buckets:


A new version of Mantle that is highly scalable and capable of withstanding significantly more traffic by scaling Wasm queries will accompany Col-5.
5/ Since Mantle plays a critical role in mediating application network traffic on Terra, ensuring the compatibility of the new version between Col-4 and Col-5 is paramount, requiring additional testing to verify the new design changes.
6/ Second:

Provide more breathing room for third-party projects building on Terra with dependencies on existing apps like Mirror, Anchor, TerraSwap, and Shuttle migrating to Col-5.

This includes easing the burden of familiarizing themselves with the new Mantle design.
7/ Terra is not the same as it was in January of this year. TVL has swelled to $7.3 billion, and tens of thousands of new stakeholders, community members, and builders have entered the ecosystem.
8/ The original timeline produced a hurried window for some projects to properly prep for Col-5.

Giving projects more time to acquaint themselves with the Col-5 testing environment and migration plans for major apps ensures a smoother runway for projects launching post-Col-5.
9/ Third:

Provide more thorough and expansive documentation for the community and third-party developers on the specifics of the Col-5 upgrade and how to use it properly.

Currently, you can find the documentation wiki for Col-5 below:

10/ However, it’s in the best, most prudent interest of Terra to offer more rigorous documentation addressing questions received from ecosystem partners and third-party teams after announcing the Col-5 Bombay testnet.

The documentation updates will occur on September 10th.
11/ The official migration guides for Mirror and Anchor will be released on September 13th, meaning web apps, contracts, and bots will be functional and operational on Bombay for users by this time.

TerraSwap has already been migrated.
12/ On 09/23, the exact sequence of events for the Columbus-5 mainnet launch will be shared publicly, providing details about what to expect and how the launch will be executed.
13/ Columbus-5 will unlock multiple new dimensions for value capture, interoperability, and scalability improvements on Terra.

Assuring the smoothest launch possible is in the best interest of the #LUNAtic community and the future of Terra.
14/ With swelling billions of TVL, tens of thousands of new users, and an amazing and devoted community, prudence is the optimal path forward for such a significant launch.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

More updates to follow soon. Please stay tuned.

1/ Thrilled to see @JumpCryptoHQ officially launch!

Jump has quietly played a pivotal role in the Terra ecosystem for a long time and is one of the most well-reputed, talented, and strategically important firms in the broader market.

2/ Jump is a consummate Terra partner.

Watching an established TradFi firm dive headlong into crypto underscores the potential of the crypto industry. As premier builders and market makers in crypto already, Jump Crypto opens up an array of new possibilities.
3/ @wormholecrypto and @PythNetwork are just the beginning. We look forward to a vibrant future with the Jump team, expanding our co-initiatives in liquidity, market-making, building, and other forms of collaboration.

1/ Wormhole for Terra has arrived!

With V2 now live and the Guardian set supporting Terra on mainnet, inter-chain DeFi between @ethereum, @solana, @BinanceChain, and Terra can realize its full potential.

2/ TFL will be converting its Shuttle bridge implementations to Wormhole, meaning that the Terra -- ETH and Terra -- BSC Shuttle bridges will be migrated to Wormhole, which will remain available on the Terra Bridge UI just with different back-end functionality.
3/ Solana will be added to the Terra Bridge UI as well, utilizing Wormhole. Stay tuned for further updates.

Eventually, the goal is for Terra Bridge to serve as the unified front-end for inter-chain transfers between Terra and other chains, including both Wormhole and IBC.

1/ Introducing the latest issue of Terra’s Project Spotlight, a special edition covering our valued partner network and one of the most fascinating application-specific blockchains in the Cosmos ecosystem -- @SecretNetwork!

2/ Secret is built on the Cosmos SDK and Tendermint, and is the only permissionless smart contracts platform to offer “privacy by default.” Secret Contracts allow queries from other application-specific chains in Cosmos to verify data integrity without sacrificing privacy.
3/ Known as “computational privacy,” Secret enables applications on the network to utilize encrypted data on the network without ever exposing the data itself -- even to network nodes. This supersedes the “transactional privacy” of most privacy-oriented public blockchains.

1/ We’re thrilled to introduce Terra’s new $150M Ecosystem Fund, which will propel Terra towards its next adoption phase; augmenting an accessible, cross-chain DeFi supersystem targeting mainstream adoption -- supported by the amazing #LUNAtic community.

2/ The onset of dozens of projects on Terra has induced the need to bolster the ecosystem’s capital & resource base to support its exponential growth effectively, culminating in the Ecosystem Fund to guide the development of Terra towards a brighter future.
3/ The Ecosystem Fund serves as a capital foundation for builders to access the resources of the industry’s leading investors to manifest their vision for apps, protocols, & tooling on Terra. Accepted applicants will unlock a line of communication with the ensemble of investors
