The appearance of Terra, the now-collapsed crypto ecosystem, was seen in Nationals Park in Washington D.C. during the home opener between the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves. During Major League Baseball’s opening day, Terra, the cryptocurrency ecosystem that collapsed in May 2022, was displayed on a banner with the slogan “a decentralized economy needs decentralized money.” The image of the banner was shared on Twitter by an attendee of the game. Another Twitter user stated that the Terra Club, a VIP pre-game venue experience, had a significant sign promoting Terra behind the home plate at Nationals Park.
