Luna’s LFG pool has added another batch of Bitcoin to its stash – over 4,000 BTC, to be precise, which is worth some $176 million at the time of this writing.

The purchase cost an average of $42,590.

With this, Terra’s total BTC holdings currently stand at 39,897 and are worth roughly $1,675 billion.

As CryptoPotato reported earlier, Terra started buying BTC back in march as parts of increasing its reserves for their algorithmic stablecoin – UST.

Do Kwon, Co-Founder, and CEO at Terraform Labs – the company building the Terra protocol and ecosystem – revealed back at the time that they intend to buy a total of $10 billion worth of BTC.

He stated that they plan to continue buying after the initial $10B is spent.

At the time of this writing, bitcoin’s price is trading at around $42,000 – down 2.1% over the past 24 hours.

The cryptocurrency has seen a 10% drop in value over the past week. This is dragging down the wider market as total capitalization plummets to $2 trillion.
