How did the raids unfold?

Terraform’s digital currencies, TerraUSD and LUNA, collapsed under the weight of significant losses for investors after the raids seized transaction records and other materials.

Do Kwon is the founder of Terraform Labs, the business that is the subject of the inquiry. Staff members of Terraform Labs were interrogated during the investigation. Several cryptocurrency wallets were sent $80 million a month from Do Kwon’s personal account and the protocol’s treasury by Do Kwon.

As a result of Do Kwon’s knowledge of the impending disaster, the SEC believes he began stealing assets and money from the company’s treasury.

What led to this?

An anonymous crypto whistleblower suspected Kwon of committing a significant fraud in late May using Terraform Labs’ Mirror Protocol. Following a complex operation involving Seoul-based “blockchain consultancy firm K,” the company was charged with money laundering through a South Korean front company.
