Are Bitcoin and Ethereum opponents? And if so, does that reach the ‘Ethereum killers’ too? Terra states no and puts their cash where their mouths are. Terra is purchasing more Bitcoin for its reserve.
Ethereum is the leader in DeFi in spite of its problems with network blockage and gas costs. And since of this, there are a number of weird stories that drift around the DeFi universe. In some cases these stories encompass the ‘Ethereum killers’ too. Like Terra who has their own wise agreement platform. Bitcoin has its maxis and ETH does too and they both perpetuate stories like:
- ETH is sound cash
- ETH is terrific due to DeFi and other apps while Bitcoin is uninteresting
- Bitcoin has no usage case if you can’t construct apps on it
- Bitcoin, not blockchain
- ETH is decentralized
- ETH is a Bitcoin killer
- Bitcoin is the only decentralized chain
- BTC has no apps (this is altering thanks to Stacks and RSK’s work)
- ______ chain (take your choice of SOL, ADA, DOT, AVAX, LUNA, BSC) is the Ethereum killer
And this leads to a concern we should not even require to be asking. Are Bitcoin and Ethereum opponents? And are Bitcoin and other ‘Ethereum killers’ opponents?
Other than the maxis on both sides, the response is and ought to be No. And yet, you seldom find out about crossovers and individuals who like utilizing both Bitcoin and DeFi apps. The concept that Bitcoin might end up being an international reserve possession, which is one of the stories that drive its development never ever appears to cross courses openly with DeFi.
LUNA Increases its Bitcoin Reserve
A number of weeks back, The LUNA Foundation Guard (LFG) revealed that they purchased $1 billion of Bitcoin. They are holding it in reserve to assist UST preserve its algorithmic peg with the dollar. All of us understand that numerous jobs hold a minimum of some Bitcoin however they hardly ever make it public. They hardly ever state they are utilizing it as part of handling their Treasury or as a reserve possession the method Bitcoiners believe BTC will operate in nations quickly. And not simply in El Salvador.
That’s what makes this news that LUNA divulged the overall strategy is not to hold $1 billion in its reserve however $10 billion so interesting. And they are continuing to purchase these levels to develop their Bitcoin reserve.
Smart Strategy for LUNA
The concept that to be pro-ETH or wise agreements or DeFi apps implies you need to protest Bitcoin is ludicrous truly. The coins and the environments do 2 various things. And primarily, they both do the important things they succeed.
This method for LUNA to reveal it thinks in Bitcoin openly for its financial residential or commercial properties which LUNA and BTC are not opponents, however are pals is genius. It’s a terrific monetary relocation for all the reasons that we like Bitcoin rather of holding dollars. It’s a terrific marketing and PR transfer to get BTC HODLers to attempt the Terra network if they have an interest in diversifying. It’s a high-impact relocation as other networks are not confessing this openly the method Do Kwon, the Terra Labs creator, simply did on Twitter.
$ UST with $10 B+ in $ BTC reserves will open a brand-new financial age of the Bitcoin requirement.

There’s little disadvantage threat too. Bitcoin still leads the marketplace even it’s not creating the eye-popping gains that other tasks have more than the in 2015. If Bitcoin drops in worth or possible usage, it will not decrease alone and it will take lots of jobs with it. This makes what LUNA is doing a really wise bet with possibly incredibly high advantage and low drawback.
Terra LUNA might be the very first to reveal this openly however we do not anticipate them to be the last.
