As per Etherscan data, today, the Luna Foundation Guard (LFG) sent $231 million worth of Tether to Binance. Do Kwon has announced the aim is to stabilize Luna’s UST, a dollar stablecoin, through bitcoin with the project aiming to buy as much as $10 billion worth of BTC.
The important thing to remember about Terra is that it’s a decentralized stablecoin in a sense that it has no issuer. Any person can mint Terra stablecoins by burning a dollar worth of decentralized assets – said Do Kwon
Terra’s CEO also argued that it’s important to remember that this is not a “corporate treasury decision in the sense that I am not buying Bitcoin – I’ve already donated money so that we can build these reserves on behalf of the community.” He also said that once the initial bootstrap of $3 billion is through, they would continue buying more in a bid to strengthen their reserves.
