A plan to revive the Terra (LUNA) ecosystem by creating a new blockchain without an algorithmic stablecoin has been designated as “final” and put to vote by Terraform Labs CEO and co-founder Do Kwon. (Updated at 13:00 UTC with details about the vote over Do Kwon's proposal.)

By creating a new blockchain with its own native token, Do Kwon’s revival plan would airdrop the new token to holders and stakers of LUNA on the old chain, as well as what he called “residual UST holders” and “essential app developers.”

According to the plan, the old Terra blockchain would continue to exist as the “Classic” chain, with the current LUNA termed as luna classic (LUNC) token. The new chain will be called “Terra” with its token Luna (LUNA).

The proposal now has “[UPDATED AND FINAL]” added to its title.

At 12:05 UTC, Do Kwon said on Twitter that the proposal has been put to vote among LUNA holders on Terra Station. “Make your voice heard & cast your vote. Excited for this future & looking forward to rebuilding with the community,” the Terra founder added in a follow-up tweet.

At 13:00 UTC, just over 43m LUNA had voted for the proposal, while 11.9m LUNA voted ‘No with veto’. The votes in favour of the proposal made up 78.3% of all votes cast so far. The voting ends in 7 days.

Under the new proposal, 45% of the new tokens will be airdropped to pre-attack holders of LUNA and UST, 30% to holders of LUNA and UST on May 27, and 25% to a community pool controlled by staked governance.

The now final proposal has already received the support of Nexus Protocol (PSI), a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform for Terra, which declared on Twitter that they “believe in a future for Terra […].”

At 10:30 UTC on Monday, LUNA traded at USD 0.00018, down 3% for the past 24 hours. At the same time, the failed stablecoin terraUSD (UST) traded at USD 0.094, nearly unchanged for the day.
