Recently, Terra’s UST stable coin faced rapid correction within 6 days of time frame, due to high-pressure sell in the crypto market due to its algorithm-based concept. 

Terra’s native token Luna & Stablecoin UST was integrated with each other via algorithm to maintain the price of UST at $1 worth but under the critical situation, UST faced significant correction in its value and also wrong steps by the Terra project team resulted in the collapse of the whole ecosystem.

At present time, UST stable coin value is $0.2, which is 80% down from its pegged value $1.

Amid the downfall in the pegged value of UST stablecoin, first ranked stablecoin USDT also faced a downfall in the value by around 3%, which was another panic in the crypto market, which was initiated because of UST downfall.

To overcome all the fears among the USDC stablecoin users, Circle reported about the genuine operations of the USDC stablecoin-backed collateral funds.
