Terra developers are working to revive the once-thriving LUNA ecosystem through a proposal dubbed “Terra Expedition”. This is actually a revised iteration of the Developer Mining Program and Developer Alignment Program.
It will be funded with 9.5% of the total LUNA supply that was initially earmarked at the launch of the new Terra chain. The program will run for four years. It will be managed by a community-elected committee that will be evaluated every 12 months. Through the revised proposal, Terra developers hope to better align incentives across the Terra ecosystem. It will attract developers, onboard users, and promote deep liquidity.
The proposal highlighted that the Terra Expedition is a four-year program aimed at growing the Terra ecosystem through a series of initiatives. There are three main objectives, with the first being to incentivize developers to build on Terra, the second to deepen liquidity, and the third to onboard users. Moreover, around 20 million LUNA are earmarked for a developer grants program. The proposal said 20 million LUNA will be floated to reward developers building on Terra. It outlined that any project deemed essential by the community will qualify for these incentives – the incentives will be distributed every quarter. The proposal highlighted a liquidity mining incentive scheme of 50 million LUNA to be distributed over four years.
The funds will also be used to seed the initial liquidity of decentralized exchanges, stablecoins, bridges, and other similar protocols built on Terra. Developers want to award five million LUNA in rewards to users.
