The AVAX Held by the LFG and TFL is 1.4% of Avalanche’s Trade Volume in the Last Week.
According to the team at Avalanche, Terraform Labs purchased 1.08 million AVAX with a one-year lockup. In terms of magnitude and to highlight that the 1.08 million AVAX held by Terraform Labs could not impact the price of the digital asset if immediately sold, the team at Avalanche pointed out that it is the equivalent of roughly 0.5% of the past week’s trading volume of the digital asset.
Additionally, the Luna Foundation Guard purchased 1.97 million AVAX to be used as reserves for its UST peg. The team at Avalanche went on to highlight that this amount represented 0.9% of Avalanche’s trade volume in the last week, further hinting that its sale could not cause a massive dump for the digital asset.
The Luna Foundation Guard Has Expressed no Plans to Sell the AVAX.
The Avalance team confirmed that the Luna Foundation Guard had not expressed plans to sell the AVAX. However, should they reconsider, Avalanche was ready to work with the Luna Foundation Guard on a sensible trading strategy. They said:
Given the proposed Terra chain fork, LFG has disclosed no plans to use the AVAX.
Should any sales be contemplated for the LFG reserves, the Avalanche Foundation is ready to work with LFG on a sensible trading strategy.
Not Sure Avalanche Has Sold Luna and UST
To note is that the Avalanche (AVAX) currently held by Terraform Labs and the Luna Foundation guard was bought using UST and LUNA.
