Terra wants its UST stablecoin and its blockchain to have more backing of an asset, and hence they are purchasing more BTC. "Given the size of Terra's global user base and the utility of UST stablecoins, the Terra blockchain is ideal for entrepreneurs looking to build new protocols. We are glad to launch the Founder Fellowship with our partners to further the expansion of the Terra decentralised economy," said Natalie Luu, Head of Ecosystem Development, Terraform Labs, reported Yahoo Finance.

A hacker used Aave’s network (AAVE) to obtain a flash loan and then bought a large amount of Beanstalk’s native token, Stalk, that allowed him greater governance access over the network. He then transferred out all the funds held there in his own wallet. But surprisingly, he donated $2,50,000 out of the stolen funds to a Ukrainian War Relief effort fund, according to Peck Shield, reported Coindesk.
