Why Luna Is Rising: Notably, LUNA hit an all-time high of $104.58 on Wednesday. At press time, it traded almost 9.1% below that level. Since the year began, LUNA has shot up 6.2%. Comparatively Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) and Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) — the top two cryptocurrencies by market cap — have declined 14.35% and 29.3%, respectively, in a similar period.
Terra’s network consists of two tokens, a stablecoin called TerraUSD (UST), which tracks the price of the dollar and LUNA. UST is underpinned by a mechanism that involves burning LUNA.
The rise in LUNA comes at a time when it has registered a growth in its ecosystem. Over the past 30 days alone TerraSwap, a leading decentralized exchange of Terra, witnessed over $1.45 billion of UST traded.
