Why integrate UST?

TerraUSD (UST) is a stablecoin native to the Terra blockchain, pegged to the US dollar at a ratio of 1:1. This stability is based on the staking of the network’s LUNA coin and makes it ideal for DeFi and TradFi. In addition, UST’s ability to generate predictable yields makes it appealing to many investors.UST is different from other stablecoins in that $1 worth of LUNA must be burnt to generate 1 UST. This is unlike many stablecoins, which are backed by dollar reserves.
