Terra’s LUNA hit a new all-time high

Stablecoins play a key role in the crypto ecosystem. Though controversial, these assets bridge the gap between fiat and cryptocurrencies on exchanges. Terra’s stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) has a market capitalization that has crossed $1.2 billion. 

UST is the first algorithmic stablecoin built for e-commerce andhas been dubbed the DeFi dollar. Terra’s ecosystem aims to offer next-generation digital commerce and money through UST and LUNA. 

LUNA hit fresh all-time highs three times in the past 30 days, offering holders over 55% gains. 

As Web3 adoption increases, Terra’s stablecoin becomes more relevant. 

Terra announced the news of its partnership with Anyswap Network. The trustless protocol bridges layer-1 and layer-2 blockchains. UST is now connected to FTM through a cross-chain bridge. 

A new proposal on Injective, a layer-2 decentralized exchange protocol, proposes to enable Terra ecosystem price feeds. The exchange proposes to launch UST pairs for LUNA, Mirror Protocol (MIR) and Anchor Protocol (ANC). 

Analysts have a bullish outlook on Terra’s LUNA. @BigCheds, a pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, is bullish on the coin. 

Over 7.2 million LUNA has been burned in the last week of November, fueling the altcoin’s price rally. 

Hayden Hughes, CEO of Alpha Impact, a social-trading platform, told Bloomberg,

Luna’s economics are built to be deflationary, and over the past month we’ve seen 100 million Luna tokens be burned, which removes them from supply forever. This reduction in supply combined with the popularity of Luna staking has created a supply shock that has driven up the value.
