Top Crypto Exchanges Show their Support for the Terra 2.0 Airdrop

Following the passage of a proposal to build “Terra 2.0,” major worldwide cryptocurrency exchanges have declared that they will support the imminent relaunch of Terra.

Terraform Labs will launch a new blockchain dubbed Terra 2.0, while the existing, collapsed network would continue to exist as “Terra Classic,” according to the proposal. The UST stablecoin will not be included in the relaunched Terra ecosystem.

Binance, FTX,, Huobi, Bitfinex, Bybit, Gate io, Bitrue, and Kucoin, among others, have committed their support for the modified version of the recently defunct Terra blockchain, as well as the migration of the blockchain to the new one.

Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trade volume, claimed on Twitter that it was “working closely with the Terra team on the recovery plan,” while announced that it “will support this ticker change and airdrop, and will distribute new LUNA airdrop we will receive to eligible users.”

However, on May 26, 2022, at 12 p.m. (UTC), FTX halted the LUNA and UST markets, noting that;

“users who have UST and LUNA balances on FTX during the snapshot time will be eligible to receive the new LUNA airdrop, subject to certain adjustments.” 

According to the FTX exchange, details such as time, implementation, and the amount will be published separately.

Similarly, starting on May 27, 2022, Upbit has renamed the old LUNA to Luna Classic (LUNC), and they will continue to offer the withdrawal service of Luna Classic (LUNC, existing LUNA) as long as the new token is operational.

Although the Terra 2.0 mainnet was set to go live on May 27 according to Orbital Command, a validator on the former Terra blockchain, another official statement was published by Terra today postponing the launch to May 28.
