Meanwhile, Korea’s Edaily newspaper confirmed that Terraform Labs is being investigated for alleged tax evasion of 100 billion won ($78 million) related to the establishment of the Luna Foundation Guard fund in February 2022. This fund had the purpose of hoarding cryptocurrencies as collateral for the UST, but failed to use up all of the $3 billion in Bitcoins in just 3 days but still failed to save the UST price.
