The most prominent move was to Polygon Studios. A multi-million dollar Terra development fund was announced in May to help Terra-based projects migrate to Polygon.

Migrated projects include OnePlanetNFT, an NFT trading marketplace, and DerbyStars, a Metaverse horse racing game.

These are two of the 48 projects that have migrated over to Polygon, with more on the way. The OnePlanet team has also titled this onboarding process “ArkOne”, Technical and financial support was provided in order to give these projects a new home.

Why Polygon?

Some of the reasons cited were that Polygon Studios have “made important strides to develop their NFT ecosystem”, and already had massive partnerships with “big players like Stripe, Meta, E-bay, and Animoca Brands”.

By migrating to Polygon, both OnePlanet and Polygon hope to introduce a new robust world of NFTs and rebuild these projects from the ground up.

Other supporting Terra-based projects

Polygon is not the only one looking to poach builders, however. In May, both VeChain Foundation and Kadena also pledged support and grants to onboard Terra-based projects.

Despite the launch of Terra 2.0, the new hard fork of LUNA, it seems that the momentum for other blockchains to fill the vacuum left by Terra is not stopping.
