The Luna Foundation Guard (LFG) broke its silence on the state of its crypto reserves, saying that it would look to compensate users for losses suffered due to the breakdown of its algorithmic stablecoin.

Terra’s native token Luna and stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) had gone into freefall last week as UST lost its peg from the US dollar.
“We are still debating through various distribution methods, updates to follow soon,” the foundation, a Singapore-based non-profit designed to defend UST, wrote in a 10-tweet thread on Monday.
LFG’s reserves have been depleted from more than 80,000 bitcoin on May 7, to just 313 bitcoin today, LFG said.
“Consistent with its non-profit mission & focus on the health of the Terra ecosystem, beginning on May 8, when the price of $UST began to drop substantially below one dollar, the Foundation began converting this reserve to $UST,” it wrote.
8/ As of now, the Foundation’s remaining reserves consist of the following assets:
· 313 $BTC
· 39,914 $BNB
· 1,973,554 $AVAX
· 1,847,079,725 $UST
· 222,713,007 $LUNA (of which 221,021,746 is currently staked with validators)

The move follows widespread speculation about the state of its reserves and how it would move to compensate users who lost vast amounts of money.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
