The South Korean prosecutors, which are investigating the collapse of TerraUSD (UST) and Terra (LUNA), have reportedly launched a forced investigation into the issuer of the tokens, Do-Hyung Kwon.

Do Kwon’s Accusations

Going by the report, Terraform Labs CEO Do Kwon is accused of issuing cryptocurrencies without letting investors know that the prices of the digital currencies, UST and LUNA, could crash.

Kwon and others involved in the development of UST and LUNA are also accused of violating the pseudo-receipt law of ‘blocking’ the investment by telling investors to buy LUNA tokens and stake them for the interest of about 20%.

Although the Co-founder Shin Hyun-Seong was also accused of the same, his position was not related to the current situation because he ended the partnership with Kwon in March 2022, the report stated.


On the 20th of July, prosecutors seized and searched 15 places, including Shin’s home and seven local crypto exchanges. At the moment, prosecutors are analyzing the transaction details of UST and LUNA via a search and seizure in the domestic exchange.

According to the report, early investors and affiliates of Terraform Labs (TFL) were also included in the search and seizure targets. Once the analysis of the confiscated material is complete, officials will commence the investigation.
