A new funding initiative boosts LUNA price

A scroll through the project’s Twitter feed shows that the surge in price followed the announcement of ‘Project Dawn’, a new funding initiative for the Terra ecosystem meant to help improve critical infrastructure and accelerate the growth of the ecosystem.

According to Terra co-founder Do Kwon, Project Dawn has allocated $150 million to “build a core Cosmos contributor organization, invest in the ecosystem’s node infrastructure, and diversify the validator and oracle infrastructure.”

Another source of excitement for the Terra community is the upcoming launch of its Colombus-5 mainnet upgrade on Sept. 29, which is “Terra’s most significant mainnet upgrade” according to the project.

On top of developments to the main protocol, LUNA price has also benefited from the expansion of the Terra ecosystem which has seen new DeFi protocols like AlphaDeFi launch and begin to attract liquidity.
