The announcement came as the entities with stronger ties to the Terra ecosystem including the $8 billion layers 1 blockchain are facing demands for bigger transparency from the community as they reckon with the latest market events.
Avalanche revealed that Terra’s developer Terraform Labs holds 1.1 million AVAX tokens in another tweet. TFL’s tokens are subject to a one-year lock-up. The tokens held by the TFL and LFG represented 0.5% and 0.9% of the token’s weekly volume:
“The AVAX is currently immobilized.”
The Luna Foundation guard and Terraform Labs both supported the blockchain and announced they acquired $200 million worth of AVAX tokens from the foundation. The Avalanche foundation also recieved $100 million worth of LUNA from terraform Labs and 100 million worth of UST stablecoin. LUNA was trading at less than a cent and UST at 8 cents which marked a huge drop in the token’s value.
