Will Do Kwon’s revival plan and Binance support for Terra ecosystem save Luna

Do Kwon the South Korean cryptocurrency developer and CEO & co-founder of Terraform Labs has come out with a ‘recovery plan’ to save Luna. The plan is based on revival of Terra network with a new ‘hard fork’. Do Known claims that his plan will solve the design flaws of Terra network.

LUNA Hard Fork

A hard fork can simply be explained as change to the blockchain’s underlying protocol ( In hard fork the rules governing the protocol are changed and may have a wide ranging implications on the cryptocurrency entire protocol. It is important to know that the hard fork would make previous transactions and blocks either valid or invalid. A hard fork is the result of several reasons like for adding new functionality to the protocol, improving the security , solving any disagreement in a cryptocurrency’s community  or reverse transactions on blockchain.

For LUNA, Terra 2.0 hard fork has been proposed. The Luna hard fork will result in creation of new cryptocurrencies, Terra (LUNA) and a Terra Classic. The proposal was also tweeted by Do known on twitter.

However,the LUNA community is divided on the Luna hard fork proposal. The twitter voting for Luna will remain open for a week. Out of the validators 38 have voted Yes and 5 have voted no (including, DSRV,, SolidStake and Stake5 Labs). So far, 82.48% have voted in favor of the proposal while 17.7% have favored No with veto power.

Will the Luna Revival Plan Work?

Do Kwon has a big task ahead. His team has to build a new network and distribute 1 billion tokens to Terra’s stakeholders or affected parties. Kwon plans to air drop the new LUNA tokens to his developer team, stakers, holders as well as residual UST holders.

It is hard to predict whether Kwon Luna ‘recovery plan’ will work or not. Luna dropped from $80 earlier this month to almost zero last week. At the time of writing LUNA/BUSD pair is trading at 0.000132 on Binance. Even the recovery to $1 seems impossible. The current market supply of Luna is 6,533.67 billion, means a $1 value per Luna will result in its market cap of 6.53 trillion. The current total market cap of cryptocurrency is $1.29 Trillion. So those thinking of large gains from Luna must look in these simple mathematical calculations. The only possibility is burning large circulating supply of Luna. Moreover, despite a large market cap, trust building of investors and community will be hard after major crash of Luna.

Binance CEO Response on Luna Hard Fork

Crypto exchange Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao also few days back revealed that:

“He’s ‘poor again’ after its Luna holdings once worth $1.6 billion crashed and are now worth just $2,200”

On Luna recovery plan Zhao commented in a tweet that:

Personal opinion. NFA.

This won’t work.

  • forking does not give the new fork any value. That’s wishful thinking.
  • one cannot void all transactions after an old snapshot, both on-chain and off-chain (exchanges).

Where is all the BTC that was supposed to be used as reserves?

Binance has also offered its BNB Chain support to Terra ecosystem projects. Zhao tweeted

Gwendolyn Regina, BNB Chain’s investment director, told Cointelegraph about the latest development and said:

“The Terra ecosystem has a lot of talented creators and developers, and our support is aimed at helping those builders and teams, building new projects on the BNB Chain. Hence, we are simply interested in supporting developers and projects so that they do not miss out on future potential.”

The role of media in today’s world

In the world of today, media has become as necessary as food and clothing. It has played significant role in strengthening the society. Media is considered as “mirror” of the modern society, infect,it is the media which shapes our lives.

The purpose of the media is to inform people about current ,new affairs and to tell about the latest gossip and fashion. It tells about the people who are geographically divided.

The role of media has become one way of trading and marketing of products and prejudices. The media claimed to be governed by righteousness and equity, but greed and self-aggrandizement has poisoned its virtues.

Media is in charge of :
1 information
2 education
3 entertainment
4 advertising
5 correlation of parts of society

Society is influenced by media in so many ways. It is the media for the masses that helps them to get information about a lot of things and also to form opinions and make judgments regarding various issues! It is the media which keeps the people updated and informed about what is happening around them and the world. Everyone can draw something from it.

Media has had a bad effect on a generation, mainly because ,youth is strongly influenced by media. Teenagers and children wish to follow the people ,who get recognized and do what they do to get noticed. Sometimes, they focus on bad part of the media and strive to be a part of it. However, many are not succumbed to a life of crime!

These are the things which get into Young civilian minds!

The media affects people’s perspective. Too much intervention of media in everything is a matter of concern. Media can be considered as “watch dog” of political democracy. Through the ages,the emphasis of media on news has camouflaged. Media these days, tries to eye the news ,which could help them to sell the information that is gathered worldwide, so that they could pave a way of success and fame of their respective channels. Fm radios, newspapers, information found on net and television are the mass medias that serve to reduce the communication gap between the audience, viewers and the media world.

For the sake of publicity and selling, important figures, their lifestyles are usually targeted. Unimportant and irrelevant news, that usually have no importance are given priority and due to a reason or the other ,they get onto the minds of the viewers and in this ways many a times,important political,economical and sociological news get neglected and gradually,lose their importance!

No doubt,media has played significant role in making world a global village and to reduce the communication gaps amongst the people living in the far areas but unfortunately,media these days has become a COMMERCIALIZED SECTOR,eying the news which are hot and good at selling.The goal is to gain the television rating points.

I believe,if the media identifies its responsibility and work sincerely and honestly ,then it can serve as a great force in building the nation.

Pakistan is up for Private Cloud Immersion: Microsoft

Recently, Microsoft organized a launch event of Private cloud immersion in Karachi. On the day, Etechcrunch got a chance to interact with Amir Rao, country manager of Microsoft Pakistan and Zafar-ul-Islam, lead technology strategist of Microsoft Pakistan.

Amir Rao is performing as country manager since January 2013 and under this capacity, Amir is responsible for planning and portfolio management which involves overseeing development of strategies to achieve marketing targets in the region.

So here we are going to share their thoughts about Microsoft Private Cloud Immersion.

Elaborating about Microsoft private cloud, Amir Rao told us that recently there has been an evident technology shift in every aspect of life. So, to cope up with market trends, Private cloud is one of our global initiatives that have now been introduced in Pakistan.


Fundamentally, Private could immersion is a new evolution of data centers in the industry to empower our customers in Pakistan thus they can get access to same set of tools and technology like people are experiencing across the world. This service will facilitate customers to set their vision for organization by ensuring a path to best allocate their resources competently in a short time.

While describing about this initiative, Mr. Zafar-ul-Islam told that organization faces several challenges from the time they envision a business initiative till its implementation which entails set of efforts, investment and its resource planning. Thus at this point of time, Private cloud would served as shared pool of resources enabling organizations to plan and execute their plans in faster and lucrative way and get competitive advantage over organizations who are using traditional systems.

Moreover, he mentioned that we do have competitive advantage but today’s launch event aim is to educate enterprises about private cloud. As compare to other vendors who are providing cloud services, Microsoft cloud service is 5-6% cost effective and slashes 80-85% extra cost laying substantial effect on business infrastructure. Once an organization opt-to cloud solution, they will definitely transform their data centers and IT infrastructure of whole business in much more cost effective way.

On the question about its pricing, he stated that, obviously it requires certain products but one of the edges it has that Private cloud is built on Microsoft windows servers. A lot of customers, who are using Microsoft Windows Servers, can build up on few layers and access to a platform readily available for them and afterwards they can expand it with just minimum investments.

Further, Mr. Amir Rao told that Microsoft offers cloud services on customer’s term either they are concerned towards their privacy or want to remain open. Like the organizations of banking, defense sector or let say of any governmental initiative like upcoming elections, they would indeed preferred private cloud for data privacy and some of organizations that have their own data centers are likely to have hybrid cloud.

All organization either large or small would benefit from this service specially solution providers, who are being partnered with Microsoft and basically providing solutions. Therefore once they are trained then they will be able to provide same resources to public, private or commercial sector.

Concluding about this service, he stated that Pakistan has potential to do betterment in every field, so we wish whoever comes in the power in our country could exploit Information Technology and global trends which will move our organizations towards environment where all users can benefit by these cloud services.
