Do Kwon Says Terra Luna’s $40,000,000,000 Collapse Is ‘My Responsibility – and My Responsibility Alone’
The founder of embattled stablecoin issuer Terra (LUNA) is taking sole responsibility for the crypto project’s multibillion-dollar collapse earlier this year.
In a new interview with Laura Shin on the Unchained Podcast, Terra Labs CEO Do Kwon says the $40 billion downfall of LUNA and its stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) are his responsibility alone.
When asked if he had anything to say to those affected by Terra’s disintegration, Kwon says the issues found within the LUNA ecosystem were his fault.
“Whatever issues existed in Terra’s design, it’s weakness [in responding] to the cruelty of the markets, it’s my responsibility and my responsibility alone.
So for the community that engaged in the Terra ecosystem, used its apps, sent tokens and coins into many protocols, the downfall of the companies that chose to build on Terra, for the hundreds of thousands if not million that used Terra currency [and] the Terra ecosystem which was all built on the stability of UST, I own up to that responsibility fully and it’s not easy.”
Last month, Interpol issued a red notice for Kwon calling on law enforcement worldwide to locate and arrest the crypto entrepreneur. Interpol’s notice came after South Korean authorities put out an arrest warrant for Kwon, a move he said was highly politicized.
Kwon says that he’s made a request to check the status of the red notice, which he says isn’t necessarily an arrest warrant as nations are free to interpret Interpol’s requests as they wish.
“To set the facts straight, we are currently requesting a check on the status of the red notice but as far as I understand, it is not an international arrest order and it states so explicitly on its website. Every sovereign nation can interpret a red notice the way it sees fit.”
