According to JTBC, sanctioned individuals include a key developer who learned that Terra founder Do Kwon “made enough money to buy the island.” It is also reported that Kwon had been scamming investors’ funds, but it is unclear if this scam was the reason for the collapse of the ecosystem.

According to media reports, the South Korean prosecutor’s office will soon begin summoning Terra’s top executives to testify. It won’t be long before Kwon is put on trial, as the South Korean authorities will have to have his passport revoked first. The founder of Terra is currently in hiding in Singapore, says the magazine.

Recall that in early May, the stabelcoin UST lost its peg to the U.S. dollar. It is not clear exactly what caused the incident, but it is believed that the project was machinated by George Soros, who had brought down the British pound in his time. UST/USD quotes plummeted from $1 to $0.12. The native token of the Terra ecosystem also got under attack, having lost 100% in LUNA/USD pair during the last week.

Previously, the editorial board wrote to BeInCrypto that the Terra project was still subjected to negative consequences after the high-profile collapse. For example, Terra’s legal consultants left the project and the South Korean tax authorities demanded $78 million from Terraform Labs.
