What is Terra (LUNA)? 

Created by Terraform Labs in 2018 and officially launched about a year later. Terra is a blockchain protocol that offers safer building and investing in the ever-volatile cryptocurrency market. The creators, Daniel Shin and Do Kwon believe that stability should be emphasized if cryptocurrencies are to record widespread adoption. 

The main purpose of Terra is to offer stability and usability. It achieves this by providing a platform where stablecoins pegged to different fiat currencies —including the unpopular ones like the Mongolian tugrik— can be minted. These stablecoins are called Terra stablecoins, and LUNA is the protocol's utility token. Luna is typically used to increase or reduce the supply of stablecoins.

What are the Benefits of Terra (LUNA)?

Terra is poised to become the leading blockchain payment provider, and the owners are doing an excellent job demonstrating that. Moreover, the ecosystem currently offers the market a lot of benefits, including: 

1. Interoperability

Terra is a multi-chain protocol that’s interoperable with several other networks, including Ethereum and Solana. Also, users can transfer Terra assets back and forth between Ethereum and Binance Smart chain using Terra Bridge—a web-based network. 

2. Quick settlements

The network provides seamless cross-border payment systems that allow users to transact instantly at ridiculously cheap fees. 

3. DApp Development 

Terra enables developers to build decentralized applications. For example, Anchor and Mirror protocols are among the popular financial service providers built on the network. 

Should I buy Terra (LUNA)?

Although currently not one of the top ten largest cryptocurrencies by market cap, it ranks in the top five by revenue made. Terra is taking Asia’s e-commerce market by storm, with its payment system recording over $1B in transaction volumes. As the network continues to expand on a global scale, it is clear that its utility token, LUNA, would increase in value. 

LUNA can be traded on major cryptocurrency exchanges, including Binance, KuCoin, and Huobi Global. After buying some LUNA, you can use it as collateral for an instant loan on YouHoder.
