Next steps for the Orion Money project

  • We developed Orion Saver to democratize the Anchor Protocol from Terra to all other blockchains. Orion Saver was launched and operated cross-chain on Ethereum and Polygon, with plans for many other networks.
  • Orion Money validator achieved top ranking by stability and amount of Luna staked.
  • We developed Orion ASTROBooster and rallied ASTRO and Terra NFT communities to build and launch a new Terra-native Convex-like solution for Astroport.
  • We had many other exciting plans for Orion Money to be implemented this year too.
  • Next 3 months from today: Orion Money Saver/APY Levels/ASTRO Booster UI will be maintained for the next 3 months from the announcement — to provide users with the opportunity to make withdrawals (in UST, ORION, xASTRO). Orion Money team will work on maintaining the web UI and ensuring the stability of withdrawals during the next 3 months. During this time the team will also upgrade the Orion smart contracts to allow users to withdraw their tokens directly from the smart contracts after the web UI is taken down.
  • After the 3 months: Users will be able to withdraw their tokens directly from smart contracts for the next 12 months (9 months after 3 months expiration).
  • Next 2+ years: Liquidity for ORION will also stay on for at least another 2.5 years as it has been locked in smart contracts at the ORION genesis for 3 years (ORION/ETH on Uniswap and ORION/BUSD on Pancakeswap).
  • New LUNA and ASTRO airdrops: Orion Money team will continue working with Terra Builders Alliance/TFL and Astroport teams to find ways of distributing new LUNA and ASTRO token airdrops (if and when received) to Orion Money users pro rata to their deposits on the snapshot dates. We will do our best effort on this and will be processing the airdrops as soon as we can once they are received.
  • So far, Astroport confirmed ASTRO airdrops for xASTRO stakers at Orion (medium post link). Once we receive them, we will work on passing these ASTRO airdrops to Orion ASTRO/xASTRO stakers.
  • As Orion users made their deposits on Ethereum/Polygon we have to wait for TFL to index aUST on those chains for Luna airdrops (TFL link). Deposits in all stablecoins USDT, USDC, DAI, BUSD and FRAX should qualify (to be confirmed). Once this is done and Luna airdrops are sent to Orion smart contracts by Terra Builders Alliance/TFL — we will work on distributing them pro rata to the Orion depositors too.
  • Orion validator: We will invest our resources and team’s time to continue operating the Orion validators on Terra Classic and new Terra chains for as long as needed, even after sunsetting the Orion Money project. We understand that Orion Money validator plays an important role due to its large stake and will continue working hard to ensure the top performance of Orion validator on both chains.
