When requested if he had something to say to these affected by Terra’s disintegration, Kwon says the problems discovered inside the LUNA ecosystem have been his fault.
“No matter points existed in Terra’s design, it’s weak spot [in responding] to the cruelty of the markets, it’s my accountability and my accountability alone.
So for the group that engaged within the Terra ecosystem, used its apps, despatched tokens and cash into many protocols, the downfall of the businesses that selected to construct on Terra, for the a whole lot of 1000’s if not million that used Terra foreign money [and] the Terra ecosystem which was all constructed on the steadiness of UST, I come clean with that accountability absolutely and it’s not simple.”

“To set the information straight, we’re presently requesting a examine on the standing of the purple discover however so far as I perceive, it isn’t a world arrest order and it states so explicitly on its web site.
