Terra witnessed a significant price gain in late February as it rose from Feb. 21 lows of $48.97 to reach highs of $97.30 on March 2 before bulls took a breath.
The price gain led to an increase in Terra's market capitalization, causing it to flip Solana and Cardano to grab the seventh spot per CoinMarketCap data. Terra is also the second-largest staked asset among all major cryptocurrencies in terms of total value staked, likewise in TVL (total value locked).
The price of LUNA surged in late February on the back of good fundamentals and community support for Terra. According to Staking Rewards, more than $26.14 billion in LUNA has been staked directly on multiple platforms. Annual yields for participants are over 6.17%.
