What’s Happening in Crypto: Does LUNA Have a Future?

It’s been over 3 months since the popular collapse of the Terra stablecoin ecosystem. UST, Terra’s popular stablecoin, dropped from its dollar peg and investors’ savings pretty much vanished. At the same time, Terra’s LUNA token lost over 99% of its value. 

Ever since Terra collapsed, everyone’s been looking for its founder – Do Kwon. he had been pretty popular on Twitter in LUNA’s good days, but he pretty much went dark after the collapse. 

Do Kwon Breaks His Silence

This week, Do Kwon finally spoke out publicly for the first time since Terra’s collapse. In an interview, he explained that he had “bet big” on the company and the ecosystem, and that he believed he “lost.” 

Kwon put on a brave face and made a lot of claims in his interview – he even said that he still believes that Terra has a future. But, none of that was enough – the crypto community criticized him heavily, and it wasn’t a pretty sight to see. 

One researcher claimed that the interview was a “nothingburger,” and that Kwon had been lying throughout. Another person encouraged all Terra investors to file lawsuits against Kwon and his company, Terraform Labs.
