The native token of the Terra network, LUNA, has become the second-largest cryptocurrency in terms of staking value.
There is currently a greater value of LUNA staked than there is Ethereum, according to the Staking Rewards analytics provider. The Terra network uses a proof-of-stake blockchain that requires stakers to deposit LUNA to validate transactions.
Additionally, the platform is currently reporting that there is $30 billion in staked value for LUNA. Comparatively, there is $27.5 billion in value for staked ETH, which is now in third place.
The leading crypto asset in terms of staked value is Solana (SOL) with $37.7 billion staked, according to Staking Rewards.
