Terra’s Do Kwon Claims He’s Not on the Run From South Korean Law Enforcement


An arrest warrant for Do Kwon, the co-founder of the tainted Terra ecosystem that crashed in May, has been issued by the South Korean prosecutors, who also asked the country’s finance ministry to void his passport last week in a bid to limit his movement across national borders. The authorities looking for Kwon believed he was in Singapore, but on Saturday, Singapore police clarified that Kwon is not their country. Kwon, meanwhile, took to Twitter on the same day to assert that he is not trying to evade any relevant authorities.

“I am not ‘on the run’ or anything similar — [from] any government agency that has shown interest to communicate, we are in full cooperation and we don’t have anything to hide,” Do Kwon said in a tweet thread, responding to reports that Singaporean police officials have said the South Korea-native is not currently in the city-state nation.

Kwon, who is currently wanted by South Korean authorities, according to Reuters, went on to say he would disclose his location to individuals if they are friends, have plans to meet, or are involved in a GPS-based Web3 game, adding that “otherwise you have no business knowing my GPS coordinates.”

Kwon is charged with violating capital markets rules in South Korea, and also faces legal challenges in multiple jurisdictions.

The collapse of the Terra ecosystem — both algorithmic stablecoin UST and sister token LUNA — triggered a massive crypto sell-off, sending Bitcoin and other top cryptocurrencies lower. Four months later, the market remains stuck in the midst of the crypto winter.

Terra’s collapse also prompted the high-profile meltdowns of crypto lenders Celsius and Voyager, as well as hedge fund Three Arrows Capital, and has brought even more scrutiny on crypto investing and stablecoins from regulators.
