What lies behind the Terra (LUNA) project?

Terra is a Blockchain protocol that uses fiat-pegged stablecoins for payment ecosystems. It currently offers a wide variety of stablecoins pegged to the US dollar, South Korean won, Mongolian tugrik and others.

Terra (LUNA) also acts as the governance token for the network. This allows holders to vote on governance proposals, giving the token an additional functionality and use case.

The growth of the Terra platform can be attributed to the growing demand for stablecoins, as most investors in the market are actively withdrawing their crypto assets from centralized exchanges and transferring them to private wallets or DEXs (Decentralized Exchange).
