Terra Luna was a black swan event for the entire cryptocurrency industry. Many people have lost their life savings and are now left with nothing. As painful as it is, we must persevere and fight on.

Here are some things we can take away from it.

1) Asset Allocation is Important

No matter how appealing a coin appears, never get greedy and go all in.

Maintain a strict asset allocation to avoid becoming overly exposed to a coin or project.

People who went all-in on LUNA 'paid' for it with their life savings.

2) Extensive Research

There is no such thing as enough research in crypto.

Before apeing in, be on a bird watch and research the following diligently.

  • Founder Interviews
  • Whitepaper
  • Roadmap
  • Tokenomics

3) Nothing is too Big to Fail

Terra Luna was considered a blue-chip with a market cap of around $680M, yet it tanked.

Recognize how early and experimental the entire space is. Never, ever believe that your favorite project will never fail.

To be considered a blue-chip, a coin must have been battle-tested for at least two cycles.

Maintain a healthy skepticism.

4)  Never Leverage

"When you combine ignorance and leverage, you get some pretty interesting results.”

― Warren Buffett

Many people got caught in the LUNA shipwreck because of leverage.

Dread it. Run from it.

5) Only Buy the Dip if it Makes Sense.

LUNA crashed from $119 to $60.

Then to $30 and it is now trading at $0.0024 and is delisted from the majority of exchanges.

While it's tempting to yell "Buy the Dip!!" and scoop things up as they fall, it's not always a good idea.
