Many investors have taken to Twitter to vent their anger over Terra’s other lackluster airdrops so far, with Twitter user cryptocevo tweeting on Monday that:

“Lost 50k on $LUNA and got a $112 airdrop Prefer full stack. That little airdrop is like extra needle salt in the wound.

Earlier today, terra_money’s verified Twitter account acknowledged that there have been issues with the airdrop so far and pledged to find a fix shortly.

“We are aware that some have received less LUNA from the airdrop than expected and are actively working on a solution. More information will be provided when we gather all the data, so stay tuned,” the tweet read. .
