The previously market-leading token, Luna, has lost more than 25% of its value following news about the defunding of the MIM stablecoin that caused additional panic around the asset.

According to TradingView, LUNA lost 27% of its value in the last six days in addition to 32% lost from the all-time high reached back at the end of December. During the global downtrend on the cryptocurrency market back in the last month of 2021, Luna was performing significantly better than the majority of the market with a 133% run to the ATH.

MIM funding issues

The funding of the stablecoin was drained by more than 40% from $530 million to approximately $300 million on CurveFinance. The reason behind the liquidity is more likely tied to news about Wonderland developers being involved in the QuadrigaCX exit scam.

Numerous Wonderland projects are tied to Abracadabra protocol, which acts as a foundation of the Magic Internet Money stablecoin. The panic around that coin and LUNA is being fueled by the fact that all of the assets are tied up with each other.

As funding data suggest, after the first news about scandalous developer deanonymization appeared in the space, funding of UST and MIM stablecoins almost immediately dropped by approximately 30%.

Wonderland expels Sifu
