The Terra team made the much awaited announcement for Terra Luna 2.0 launch on Saturday. The team activated the Terra 2.0 Pheonix-1 mainnet by generating the first block on the blockchain network.

What Is Terra 2.0

On May 25, Terra Classic users passed the governance proposal which outlined the genesis of a new Terra chain. The proposal also described a genesis distribution of Luna which would be airdropped to users. As per the plan, Terra Classic chain users would receive airdrops based on pre-depeg and post-depeg snapshots.

The airdropped Luna could be found by viewing the same wallet address that was present during either snapshot and switching their Terra station network to the phoenix-1 mainnet. The phoenix-1 Terra mainnet launch was seen as a new era of development by the Terra community.

LUNA Airdrop Distribution

In the genesis phase, Luna will have a supply of 1 billion tokens allocated. The distribution comprises a community pool of 30% while the rest is governed by the staked governance. As announced earlier in the revival plan, 10% of the tokens are earmarked for developers.

The pre-depeg LUNA holders will get an airdrop of a pool which holds 35% of the total supply. While the pre-depeg aUST holders are allotted an airdrop capacity of 10%, post-attack LUNA holders airdrop also counts to 10%. The post-attack UST holders will get an airdrop of 15% of the supply.
