Where will you get your Terra 2.0 airdrop? 

Users will get their token on the same addresses they had under control on Terra Classic. If your address is eligible for the Terra 2 airdrop, your LUNA will automatically appear here.

Meaning your Terra 2 and Terra classic holdings will be both accessible. Because you have the same address on Terra 2. If you have LUNA or UST on an exchange you should send it to an address you control.

As the snapshot approaches, we will see what the market really thinks about the new LUNA price.

The genesis unlock will be liquid, so immediately sellable. But you will not be able to dump all of your airdropped tokens.

Where 30% of the airdrop will be immediately transferable and 70% will be locked. The duration of the locked and bonded LUNA will be spread out over 2 years and you will be able to unlock your first batch after 6 months. 

Hereafter the unlocking process will happen slowly block by block. This airdrop will be bonded, meaning you can redelegate, vote and even earn staking rewards with it.
