The Terra (LUNA) token and its stablecoin UST crashed down to the ground in a historic dump. Almost every big crypto trading exchange in the world delisted both the tokens from their platforms. LUNA lost 100% of its value in just 7 days. However, the latest price update of the token has raised some suspicion among investors.

LUNA price up by 1500%

The Biggest crypto exchange, Binance opened the spot trading for LUNA/BUSD and UST/BUSD on its platform. It also authorized the deposits and withdrawals for both the token at the same time. However, it dropped a warning for investors to do their own research on the fundamentals of the tokens.

Will Terra utilise its BTC reserve?

Trading has been very volatile for the LUNA in the past 24 hours. This sudden surge in the price of a dead coin raises some straight questions. Is this another rug pull or Bull trap laid by the experts to fetch more money?

He mentioned that the team is working on documenting the utilisation of its Luna Foundation Guard Bitcoin reserves at the time of depegging event. As per reports, the LFG BTC reserve holds around 70,736 Bitcoin.
