Of the potential restoration plans, CZ said:

“Private opinion. NFA.

This received’t work.
– forking doesn’t give the brand new fork any worth. That’s wishful pondering.

The place is all of the BTC that was supposed for use as reserves?”

He then gave some ideas on Terra’s response to the debacle and the proposal of a fork.

“Minting, forking, don’t create worth. Shopping for again, burning does, however requires funds. Funds that the mission workforce might not have. On this regard, I wish to see extra transparency from [Terra]. Way more! Together with particular on-chain transactions (txids) of all of the funds. Counting on third social gathering evaluation shouldn’t be adequate or correct. That is the very first thing that ought to have occurred…

I’m not at all times proper, however my perspective is: Failures can/will occur. However once they do, transparency, speedy communication and proudly owning accountability to the neighborhood is extraordinarily vital.”

I’m simply hoping that the mission groups can rise from the ashes and rebuild in a correct and wise approach.”
