Twitter user Sassalox has taken to Twitter to ask Terra’s founder Do Kwon, if it is time for LUNA3 following the Plunge of LUNA2, which has gone down 66% in just 5 days after its launch.
Investors rush for exits after securing airdrop
According to CoinMarketCap, Luna 2.0 is currently trading at $6.58, down from an original price of $17.80 when it launched on Saturday and has seen an all time high of $19.54. Since its launch, Luna2 has garnered a number of reactions on social media.
“We already got ETH2 after the DAO hack. It’s down more than 66% from the highs. Need ETH3? Oh wait…it keeps getting delayed. Tradfi dunking on bitcoin, bitcoiners on ETH, ethereans on Solana/Luna….”
A Twitter user tweeted, explaining that the situation with LUNA2 has played out before.
Just as soon as the Terraform Labs CEO “airdropped” the new token, Luna 2.0, into users’ virtual wallets, holders rushed for the exits in an attempt to retain what little they still could, from their original investment. The new coin promptly plunged over 60% to around $6.
Luna 2.0 is the brand new token of the new Terra blockchain intended to rescue the Terra Luna ecosystem following the stablecoin collapse. Earlier, Terraform Labs said it would “airdrop” these new Luna tokens to many people who lost money at the rate of 1.03 Luna coins.

The Luna Classic price is $0.01, a change of -21.61% over the past 24 hours as at time of writing. The recent price action in Luna Classic left the token’s market capitalization at $46,930,880,257.26 USD. So far this year, Luna Classic has a change of -99.99%.
