At the time of writing, Justin Sun has not elaborated on his plan for the purchased UST. However, crypto-twitter community members have offered the following possibilities.

  • He will use it as a reserve for Tron’s USDD stablecoin
  • The funds will be committed to a UST-USDD pool

UST Had Depegged from the $1 Mark, Affecting the Value of Terra (LUNA)

Justin Sun’s purchase of $1 million comes in the wake of TerraUSD (UST) depegging due to a massive sale of the stablecoin in Curve Finance and Binance. UST has since regained a value closer to the $1 mark.

Additionally, the events of the last 48 or so hours have had a negative effect on the price of Terra (LUNA). The digital asset has suffered an 11.21% decline in value in the last 24 hours.

It is also trading below the critical 200-day moving average after setting a local low of $59.40 earlier today and due to news of TerraUSD (UST) depegging from its one-dollar mark.

Furthermore, Terra (LUNA) could continue to experience a bearish sentiment given that Bitcoin has lost its $34k support and looks destined to tap $32k either by tonight’s weekly close or sometime next week.
