SEC designates Terra tokens securities
in feb. 16 complaints, the SEC alleged that the failed Terra algorithmic stablecoin TerrraUSD (USTC), LUNC — formerly Terra Luna — and Wrapped LUNA Classic (WLUNC) were securities under US securities laws.
The financial regulator further argued that Terraform Labs violated securities law by launching the Mirror (MIR) protocol. MIR allowed users to create mAssets, which constitute a security-based swap, according to the SEC.
The SEC added that the encapsulated version of Luna is also safe.
“wLUNA is also security because it is a receipt for security.”
