Do Kwon Denies Cashing out $2.7B from Terra (LUNA), UST, Claims to be Clean


  • A Twitter thread accused Do Kwon of cashing out $80 million, per month for 3 years.
  • Do Kwon has dismissed the rumors through a series of tweets.
  • The entrepreneur has been summoned to attend a parliamentary hearing on the matter in South Korea.

CEO and co-founder of the not-so-famous Terra (LUNA) and TerraUSD (UST) ecosystem, Do Kwon has rejected the claims of cashing out $80 million every month for three years consecutively.

On June 11, multiple unconfirmed reports claimed Kwon’s participation in the cash draw on LUNA and UST prior to the crash to buy US dollar-pegged stablecoins like Tether (USDT).

These rumors made their way after a Twitter thread by @FatManTerra shared the alleged details on how Kwon and other influencers drained funds while maintaining the liquidity.

Replying to the tweet, Kwon urged the crypto community to keep away from spreading the rumor until it was proven true. He further said:

This should be obvious, but the claim that I cashed out $2.7B from anything is categorically false.

The entrepreneur mentioned that the rumor of him cashing out $80 million per month contradicts the claims that he still holds most of his LUNA holdings, procured during the airdrop. Additionally, he stated that over the past two years, his income has only been a cash salary from TerraForm Labs (TFL).

I didn’t say much because I don’t want to seem like playing victim, but I lost most of what I had in the crash too. I’ve said this multiple times but I really don’t care about money much.

Mr. B, a developer from Anchor Protocol, a Terra-centric sub-ecosystem, warned Kwon regarding the impractical high-interest rates. He said that the platform was designed to offer an interest rate of 3.6% to maintain the stability of the Terra ecosystem stable; however, it was changed to 20% just before the release:

I thought it was going to collapse from the beginning (I designed it), but it collapsed 100%.

He suggested Kwon to reduce the interest rates but the request was refused. Do Kwon has been summoned to attend a parliamentary hearing on the matter in South Korea.
