Next steps for the Orion Money project

Orion Money project started a little over one year ago at the first Terra chain hackathon. We have come a long way during this year with amazing support from the Orion community, users and investors:

  • 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.

This all suddenly came to a halt with the UST depeg and Terra chain crash. During the past few weeks, our highest priority was to process Orion Money users’ cross-chain withdrawals due to ongoing issues with EthAnchor and Terra blockchain. Once this was significantly improved and working well, we started to explore what’s next for Orion Money.

At its core Orion Money project is deeply connected to UST and Anchor Protocol and, unfortunately, we do not see much potential for Orion Money without these two parts present on the Terra 2 chain. We will have to gradually sunset the Orion Money project in the coming months — and it is a heartbreaking decision for us.

While closing down the Orion Money project we will still be supporting our users in a number of ways — be it Orion Money web UI, new Luna and ASTRO airdrops, and maintaining Orion validator on both Terra chains.

Please read below for detailed information on these points:

  • 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.

Update: Astroport will enable Orion ASTROBooster users to claim their ASTRO airdrop directly on Astroport website on Terra 2 chain.

You can check how much ASTRO you will be able to claim by searching your Terra address in the Google spreadsheet here:

For full details of ASTRO airdrop and to check if you qualify — please read this post:

  • 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.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you — the Orion community, users, and investors for your support and understanding during these turbulent times. Stay strong and safe!
