Do Kwon accused of manipulating Terra’s price
According to a South Korean media report, prosecutors have obtained evidence indicating that Terraform Labs co-founder Do Kwon once directed an employee to manipulate the price of Luna Classic (LUNC).
According to a Nov. 3 report by Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), an official from the South Korean prosecutor's office stated that they have obtained a "conversation history" in which "CEO Kwon specifically ordered price manipulation."
Kwon's whereabouts remain unknown, despite the Terra ecosystem co-founder previously claiming he is "not on the run."
