The Luna Foundation Guard (LFG), the entity whose task was to maintain the stability of the terraUSD (UST) peg, said it spent nearly all of its bitcoin (BTC) held in reserves to defend UST’s dollar peg as it collapsed. But from what is left, users of the failed stablecoin will be compensated, LFG said.

UST users will be compensated, starting with the “smallest holders first,” LFG wrote in a Twitter thread on Monday, adding that the specific distribution method to be used is still being debated.

The promise came in a thread where LFG also shared more details of what is now left of its reserves. As of Monday, the reserves reportedly included BTC 313 (USD 9.26m), and BNB 39,914 (USD 11.74m).

In addition, comes a larger holding of UST, which still has a market value of more than USD 180m based on an (optimistic) price of USD 0.10 for each
