Terra Stable Coin Collapse Leaves Many Investors with Tremendous Losses

May 24, 2022 -In recent cryptocurrency news, the Terra stablecoin lost its peg to the U.S. dollar, causing the value of the coin to plummet from a high of $119 to almost zero. If you were a TerraUSD investor who woke up to a portfolio that was worth only a small fraction of what it was weeks ago, you probably have questions about what happened. You may also be wondering if there is anything you can do to recover some or all of your losses.

The cryptocurrency lawyers at Console & Associates, P.C. are investigating the TerraUSD collapse on behalf of investors who were affected by the stablecoin’s devaluation. We are currently looking into whether aggrieved investors can bring claims against any and all involved parties including individuals, companies, platforms and exchanges that promoted the Terra coin as stable. As a part of this investigation, we are setting up free consultations with aggrieved investors to help them determine if they have a claim against any of these parties.

About Terra Stablecoin

Terra stablecoin was first created in 2018 by Terraform Labs, a company founded by Do Kwon and Daniel Shin. The idea behind TerraUSD, or any other stablecoin, is that it is a safe investment because it is pegged to a stable currency. In the case of TerraUSD, the coin is pegged to the U.S. dollar. Thus, the goal is for the stablecoin to maintain its peg to the dollar, and investors make money by the interest that is paid based on each coin held.

However, the value of a stablecoin is inherently tied to its ability to maintain its peg to the underlying asset.

What Happened to TerraUSD?

TerraUSD collapsed when it lost its peg to the U.S. dollar. Essentially, the stablecoin’s internal rules changed, and the interest rate went from approximately 20% to a variable rate. This caused many TerraUSD holders to move their money elsewhere, which resulted in TerraUSD becoming almost worthless overnight.

Do TerraUSD Investors Have a Remedy?

Cryptocurrency is often thought of as an entirely unregulated asset. However, in reality, there is some level of regulation in the industry. While the specifics of cryptocurrency regulation are not as developed as with other investable assets, the individuals who create the coin and the platforms and exchanges that promoted them are bound by laws prohibiting they make fraudulent and misleading statements. Thus, depending on the outcome of the investigation, aggrieved investors may have a claim against one or more parties following the Terra stablecoin collapse.
