Terra Luna Outperforms Top 10 in Gains as Crypto Market Rebounds
Per CoinMarketCap data, Terra (LUNA) was up nearly 15% recently. The cryptocurrency market posted a rebound as the total market valuation increased by 5.47% to stand at $1.76 trillion just a day ago. LUNA, the native token of smart contracts blockchain Terra has outperformed the top 10 cryptocurrencies in terms of gains over the 24 hours, thanks to rising investor optimism.
Terra outpaced lead asset Bitcoin (BTC), which gained over 4%, and Solana, which has gained 7.10%. Avalanche (AVAX) cryptocurrency, up 12%, was another big gainer in the top 10. Luna Foundation Guard's (LFG) plan to develop a Bitcoin-denominated reserve as an additional layer of security for UST, whose value is fixed 1:1 to the U.S. dollar, aligns with LUNA's recent price improvements.
LFG also stated that it had raised $1 billion in private token sales to add to its Bitcoin reserve, with buyers agreeing to lock up their coins for a four-year vesting period. Jump Crypto and Three Arrows Capital were among the investors in the funding round.
Apart from that, Terra's LUNA token is one of the most talked-about cryptocurrencies on the market, despite its lackluster performance over the last three months, according to Santiment.
LUNA is seeing the greatest discussion surrounding the token since October, per social metric, indicating incoming buying power from retail investors. The increase in social volume may likely have contributed to the recent price increase.
LUNA Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Terra Luna price chart shows us that LUNA has been highly bearish during the ongoing session. If the current bearish sentiment persists, we could see LUNA drop to $50.
