HitBTC plans to list Terra’s brand new token LUNA on May 27 as the suspended Terra Classic blockchain is expected to revive as Terra 2.0.
Crypto trading platforms show initial signs of support for the revival of the collapsed Terra network by listing Terra’s brand new token, also named LUNA.
The HitBTC exchange took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that Terra’s new chain token Luna will be available on its platform on May 27.
The news comes amid Terraform Labs preparing to relaunch its protocol on Friday and replace the old chain, referred to as Terra Classic, with the new chain, called Terra or Terra 2.0. The new chain will not be a fork as it will be created from the genesis block and will not share a history with Terra Classic, Terraform Labs said on Monday.
The new Terra’s token will be named LU, replacing the old token referred to as Luna Classic (LUNC).
As previously reported, Terraform Labs CEO Do Kwon proposed to create a new Terra chain without Terra’s algorithmic stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) in mid-May, suggesting LUNA airdrops across LUNC stakers and holders, UST holders and Terra Classic app developers.
The proposal immediately received support from the community, with 91% of Terra validators voting in favor of the Terra “rebirth” as of May 18. At the time of writing, the community poll is still ongoing, with roughly 67% of voters supporting Terra’s revival as Terra 2.0.
