“Call to action: we encourage Terra developers to signal support & commit to building on the fork on public channels ASAP,” Kwon said.
9/ Terra 2.0 is focused on developers – developers will get an immediate emergency allocation of Luna tokens to fund runway, as well as a pool of tokens earmarked to align the interests of the base layer with its builders.

Terra’s Plan to Make Investors Whole
The Terra team is committed to making investors of TerraUSD (UST) and LUNA whole new again. In a bid to accomplish this feat, the team is proposing to fork the existing chain, which will lead to the creation of new tokens dubbed Terra (LUNA) while the existing tokens will be renamed Terra Classic (LUNC).
The newly created tokens will be airdropped to holders, validators, and stakers of the old Terra tokens. As reported, TerraForm Labs said it believes the newly airdropped tokens are part of efforts to make investors whole again.
