LUNA has gained by an outstanding 50% in the last seven days, making it the best performing crypto in the top-100, ranked by market cap. In addition to this, LUNA has overtaken as the 12th largest crypto in the process.

The Terra network’s expansion is in full flow, and LUNA burning has attracted users to the network. In the final week of November, 7.2 million LUNA tokens were burnt. As a result, annualized staking return for LUNA has increased from 4.61% at the beginning of November, to 10.74% at the end of the month.
Huobi Pool, the world’s largest staking mining pool under Huobi Group, recently announced the launch of Terra LUNA staking.
Through Huobi Pool, investors can vote for notes and earn rewards on the platform. Users will benefit from up to 3.8% annualized returns by staking a minimum of 0.1 LUNA tokens.
On November 30th, Terra announced a proposal to increase the UST on Curve Finance, Ethereum’s leading AMM (automated market maker) for stablecoin swaps. The ultimate goal of all of these recently submitted proposals is for UST to become the “go-to” interchain stablecoin.
Stader Labs has teased the launch of LunaX. With its launch, users will be able to access auto-compounding on Liquid Luna, get liquidity fees from multiple pools, utilize leveraged staking, as well as access futures and options, and immediate liquidity on decentralized exchanges (DEX).

GMI Analyst, Remi Teto, wrote the following about the Terra project;
Remember that $Luna is only a tool in Terra ecosystem, sure it will generate wealth for Hodlers, but the success of the ecosystem will happen once $UST is the reference stablecoin on multichains. @terra_money is leading the way in creating a truly decentralized economy

The big banks are now beginning to explore what @terra_money & @anchor_protocol do as their basic function with $LUNA & $USTWould be great to see borrowers, big & small, sidestep the #Tradfi banks & just do this with $LUNA…. https://t.co/dlsrT38nWN
