Terra’s new LUNA 2.0 token has lost 54% in value in the last two weeks, after reaching $11.33 per unit on May 30. Meanwhile, the whistleblower Fatman has accused Terra’s co-founder Do Kwon of cashing out $2.7 billion a few months before the UST de-pegging incident. Kwon, however, has been keeping tabs on Fatman’s accusations and he claims the allegations are “categorically false.”
At the time of writing, LUNA 2.0 has $135 million in global trade volume, which pales in comparison to the volume luna classic (LUNC) saw prior to the fallout. The top exchanges in terms of trade volume for LUNA 2.0 include Bitrue, Okx, Huobi Global, Kucoin, and Gate.io. LUNA 2.0’s top five trading pairs today include USDT, USD, USDC, EUR, and ETH, respectively.
Should we start using the term Kwonzi more often? I propose a definition.
Kwonzi: a financial scheme with borrowed elements from and a similar negative-sum nature to a Ponzi but not a Ponzi – cleverly obfuscated by sophisticated manipulation, legitimate technology, and jargon.
To reiterate, for the last two years the only thing I’ve earned is a nominal cash salary from TFL, and deferred taking most of my founder’s tokens because a) didn’t need it and b) didn’t want to cause unnecessary finger-pointing of ‘he has too much.’
