Although many people are still suspicious of Terra 2.0, Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of crypto exchange Binance, who has shown support for Terra’s new blockchain, has stated that “credibility is the ultimate money.”
Credibility is the ultimate currency.

Ben Armstrong, a Crypto YouTuber, also advised people not to buy cryptocurrency again. Other users who have stuck with the original LUNA, which has subsequently been renamed Terra Classic (LUNCH) and is sometimes referred to as LUNA classic, have seen their holdings drop by 29 percent in just 24 hours to $0.00009031.
Crypto Expert Tip: Don’t buy LUNA ever again. Not 2.0, not 3.0, not 3.14.
Sometimes you just have to accept your loss. The experiment failed. Move on.
