Terraform Labs co-founder, Daniel Shin, work partner of Do Kwon, finally opened up on being accused of indulging in fraudulent behavior. TerraUST and Luna crashed to $0 last month as it plummeted straight 100% in the span of 3-days. The UST got depegged 1:1 from the USD and fell dramatically to $0 wiping away investments in a jiffy. This led to the creation of Luna 2.0 which was launched during the last week of May. The South Korean government has already launched 2 investigations into the matter and the inquiry is ongoing.

Daniel Shin, finally opened up about the accusations and denied that Terraform Labs‘ management had prior knowledge about the crash. He revealed to Financial Times that there were no intentions of manipulating the price of TerraUST. He also stated that his team was not deceptive and answered every question thrown at them while it came down to $0.

“There was no intention of deception. We just wanted to innovate the payment settlement system with blockchain technology,” Shin told the Financial Times.

Shin added, “We were not aware of any flaws in the coins’ algorithm and there was no attempt at manipulating their prices.”

However, Do Kwon has not opened up about being accused of fraud and has mostly chosen to remain quiet. Do Kwon has also turned his Twitter handle ‘private’ making it difficult for others to contact or question him. Kwon is now believed to be in Singapore and not in South Korea.
