Terra’s new blockchain (LUNA) is officially launched, and the airdrop has begun

Terra 2.0 is officially live

the first block of Terra’s new blockchain officially been produced this morning at 7 o’clock (French time). The blockchain mainnet is now called “ Phoenix-1 “.

As stated in the Terra press release, the decentralized applications (dApps) having chosen to follow the path of the fork will have to “restart” on this new network. Also, we advise you to follow the announcements made on their social networks (Twitter, Telegram) for this purpose.

On a model similar to the previous one, it is also already possible to delegate their LUNAs to network validators to be rewarded for it. Note that your staking rewards will be redeemable at any time.

What about new tokens?

As announced by Do Kwon via Twitter, it is already possible to view the LUNA in your possession from the Terra Station wallet. To do this, simply connect to it and refresh the page.

If you don’t see them, check that you are connected to the network. Mainnet from the wallet. To do this, go to the application options then select ” Mainnet at line level Network “.

To return to the network classic (especially if you have UST or aUST), just select the latter instead.

It seems that for a number of users, the new tokens are only visible from their computer wallet. Also, if you do not see them from your wallet on mobile, we invite you to check on your PC.

According to Do Kwon, the Terra Finder block explorer is up and running for the new network. It should therefore already be possible to view your transactions or the status of your wallet if necessary.

Note that as stated in Do Kwon’s fork proposal, the majority of new tokens are locked for a variable period of time, in particular in order to avoid a massive resale. It is therefore normal that the number of LUNA tokens appearing in your wallet may seem low.
