Welcome to the official Terra documentation. Terra is currently running Columbus-3 Mainnet, the latest iteration of the network which brings many new features and breaking changes, requiring a hard fork. Please read up there to keep up-to-date.
What is Terra?
Put simply, Terra is a new cryptocurrency that is:
price-stable through an algorithmically-enforced elastic monetary policy that pivots miner incentives toward stable, consistent growth.
decentralized meaning it isn't tied to one government's currency like Tether or TrueUSD, and retains all of the censorship resistance of Bitcoin
focused on user-adoption and growth, and is already being used by thousands of retail consumers throughout Korea and Southeast Asia.
|Mainnet||n/a||Public mainnet for production|
|Testnet||here||Columbus-3 Testnet with Fast Tally and Short Period|
Terra Protocol presents a technical specifcation of the Terra decentralized stablecoin system, explaining the mechanisms behind its core features through its reference implementation written in Golang, Terra Core.
User Manual covers how to interact with the Terra blockchain and participate in the network either as simply a user or a validator by running Terra Core, the official node software.
Validator Handbook is a collection of helpful information, troubleshooting recipes, and best practices we've compiled for validators.
Contribute outlines the community effort for improving Terra, including guidelines for contributing to Terra Core and for submitting Terra Improvement Proposals (TIPs).
