Critical New Development in Terra (LUNA) and SEC Case: Billion Dollars in Talk

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) asked the New York court to impose a hefty $5.3 billion fine on Terraform Labs and its co-founder Do Kwon, on the grounds that they were involved in the $40 billion collapse of the Terra (LUNA) ecosystem in 2022.
Terraform Labs and Kwon were convicted on fraud charges earlier this month. A jury in Manhattan found that the company and Kwon deceived investors about the stability of their so-called “algorithmic” native stablecoin, Terra USD (UST), and the use cases of the Terra blockchain.
The SEC, which filed for final judgment two weeks after the conclusion of the hearing, demands that Terraform Labs and Kwon pay damages and precautionary interest in the amount of $ 4.74 billion. Additionally, the regulator is seeking damages totaling $520 million, including $420 million from Terraform Labs and $100 million directly from Kwon.
The SEC justified the total amount in an attached memorandum filed with the court, stating that Kwon and Terraform Labs “obtained over $4 billion in illicit profits (and likely much more) from their illegal conduct.”
According to court documents, LUNA and MIR sales to institutional investors amounted to $65.2 million and $4.3 million, respectively. LUNA and UST sales through Luna Foundation Guard (LFG) totaled $1.8 billion. Additionally, investors purchased $2.3 billion of UST across various cryptocurrency trading platforms between June 2021 and May 2022.

The SEC added that the penalty amount represents a “conservative” but “reasonable approach” to Terraform and Kwon's “ill-gotten gains.”
In addition to the hefty fines, the SEC is also seeking injunctive relief to prevent Kwon and Terraform Labs from committing further securities violations and buying or selling “any cryptoasset securities.” The regulator is also seeking an officer and director ban that would prohibit Kwon from serving as an officer or director of a public company reported by the SEC.
The SEC stated that such measures were necessary to deter future violations because “Defendants have shown no remorse for their conduct and cannot be doubted that they are in a position where additional violations are not only possible but have already occurred.”
