Binance’s $1.6 billion LUNA investment, now just $3,000

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said the crypto exchange made large paper gains on its investment in Luna but has now lost practically all of them.

The exchange invested $3 million into the Terra ecosystem in 2018, receiving 15 million Luna tokens. At Luna’s peak price, that investment was worth $1.6 billion, according to Zhao. Yet due to last week’s collapse of Luna — and its related stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) — that investment has now plummeted in value to just $3,400. Or, in Zhao’s words, “not much.”

Yet it’s not all bad news. The exchange received around $10.3 million worth of UST in staking rewards (likely through Anchor, which offered up to 20% yield). While that would be worth $74 million if UST was holding its peg to the dollar and not trading at its current value of $0.13, it means Binance is still up on its initial investment.
