Anonymous puts target on crypto boss who oversaw $40 billion price crash
Anonymous has pledged to bring a crypto boss “to justice” after he oversaw a market collapse that wiped more than $40 billion from investors’ holdings.
The online hacking collective made the threat in the latest video posted to its official YouTube channel, accusing the co-founder of Terraform Labs of siphoning off the funds of retail investors who had bought the platform’s Terra (LUNA) and TerraUSD (UST) tokens.
Kwon Do-Hyung, known as Do Kwon, has previously denied these allegations, though more than 1,600 investors have signed up for a class-action lawsuit against him after both LUNA and UST collapsed in price last month.
“The actions of Do Kwon, the founder of the Terra LUNA ecosystem, is single-handedly responsible for scamming billions of dollars away from retail investors,” the video stated.
“Do Kwon made a name for himself with his arrogant tactics, trolling competitors, and critics, and acting as if he would never fail... However, he was quickly knocked down by the markets. The louder they are, the harder they tend to fall.”
Anonymous accused Do Kwon of cashing out billions of dollars worth of investor funds – something that he has publicly denied.
In a recent Twitter post, the crypto boss described the accusations as “categorically false”, saying that he “lost most of what I had in the crash too”.
