Switzerland-based asset manager GAM Investments revealed that it is negotiating with Terraform Labs to help support the UST. The company is expected to invest between $2 bln and $3 bln to take in UST’s excess supply amid the ongoing sell off, and recover the USD peg.

Terra blockchain's stablecoin has lost over 90% of its value and currently trades at about $0.16. It is an algorithmic stablecoin designed to maintain its peg due to algorithms with the help of LUNA coin.

GAM CEO Peter Sanderson noted that the company is interested in supporting a vibrant, and innovative digital assets market, adding that they believe in the Terran system, and its algorithmic design.
