The price of LUNA first fell below USD 1 on 11 May 2022, down from more than USD 65 at the start of the week. Over the past few days, TerraUSD (UST) — an algorithmic stablecoin native to Terra that is supposed to track the price of the US dollar — has drastically de-pegged, throwing crypto markets into crisis. UST’s price currently stands around USD 0.60, according to Binance, but it had dropped as low as USD 0.02250, The Block editors explain.
