Binance, FTX, Crypto.com, Huobi, Bitfinex, Bybit, Gate io, Bitrue, and Kucoin have announced their support for a modified version of the recently collapsed Terra blockchain called Terra 2.0. At the same time, Binance representatives stated that they are already working closely with the Terra team on a recovery plan, and a message appeared on the official FTX blog that the trading platform will support the distribution of new LUNA tokens and suspend the operation of the LUNA and UST markets. Messages of support began to appear en masse after the adoption of "proposal 1623" put forth by Terraform Labs CEO Do Kwon and the Terra community. According to it, Terraform Labs will deploy the new Terra 2.0 blockchain with the UST stablecoin, while the old rolled blockchain will continue to exist and be renamed Terra Classic. Under the terms of the project regeneration, existing Terra Classic token holders will receive new LUNA tokens. Terra 2.0 is expected to be launched on May 27th, with the distribution of new tokens to start immediately after that.
According to data from Coinglass, the current drop in the price of Bitcoin to $28,955 and Ethereum to $1,818 triggered a massive wave of crypto liquidations that swept through several crypto exchanges and led to a drop in the digital asset market capitalization by $116 million in just one hour. Liquidation is an automatic process that is triggered when a trader loses the initial margin on a position. This brings the total amount of liquidated Bitcoin positions to over $41 million today. The largest number of long liquidations across all assets was recorded on Bitfinex ($28.98 million), OKX ($44.68 million), and Binance ($22.47 million). After that, the price of BTC recovered to $29,191 and ETH rose to $1841, but at the time of writing, the coins continued to fall. Curiously, the number of Bitcoin whale wallets continued to grow even amid large-scale liquidations. Over the past 3 months, a whole 190 vaults have appeared, the addresses of which contain from 100 to 1000 BTC.
