The relaunched version of Do Kwon’s Terra, the Terra Luna Classic (LUNC), has made waves on Twitter lately. Tags like #LUNCArmy and $LUNC have been constantly trending on the social platform for the past week. KuCoin, a well-known crypto exchange that is headquartered in Victoria, Seychelles, has announced the top 10 most popular cryptocurrencies by weekly searches. For the first time in a while, Shiba Inu (SHIB) had to grudgingly step aside from the dominant position.
Crypto Influencers Are Asking Questions
First of all, the popularity of Ethereum (ETH) & Ethereum Classic (ETC) searches makes perfect sense. ‘The Merge‘ has kicked in and even tech giant Google is featuring a countdown. However, social influencers are puzzled about the sudden fame of Luna Terra Classic (LUNC).
The weird tendencies were spotted exactly a week ago, when crypto influencer David Gokhshtein called Terra Luna Classic (LUNC) a game of musical chairs. The crypto version of the children’s game also resembles a “lottery ticket,” according to Mr. Gokhshtein. Indeed, the situation might feel unfair for crypto projects that have put in the effort to upgrade their systems, argues Gokhshtein.
Intriguingly, Terra Luna Classic (LUNC) was at the center of attention after catapulting 217% in the last 30 days, but the controversial cryptocurrency is down by 22% in the last 24 hours at the time of publication. At press time, Terra Luna Classic (LUNC) trades at $0.00030502, according to CoinGecko.
Am I missing something,. With @stablekwon soon to be arrested, isn't that a good thing for #LUNC? I thought he was champion of #LUNA and the accusations last week was that he sold his position in #LUNC to boost the price of #LUNA? With him gone, #LUNC moons right? 🔥🚀🌕— Crypto Enthusiast (@J_F_Ball) September 14, 2022
South Korean Authorities Hunt for Do Kwon
Currently residing in Singapore, Do Kwon was asked the question if he’d consider coming back to his home soil of South Korea. Despite giving a vague answer, Mr. Kwon also mentioned that the South Korean authorities haven’t reached out to him, contrary to popular belief. However, the tables have turned today as the South Korean authorities officially issued a warrant for TerraForm Labs CEO Do Kwon’s arrest.
According to Choi Sung-kook, the prosecutor at the Seoul Southern District Prosecutor Office: “Violation of the capital markets law is among the charges included for the arrest warrants.” The officer refrained from disclosing other charges that Do Kwon is wanted for. Despite this, the officer said that the South Korean Police is going to request an Interpol Red Notice. Ultimately, this means that law enforcement is supposed to arrest the person wherever they are.
On the Flipside
- The de-pegging of Terra (UST) and Terra (LUNA) caused massive outrage in the crypto community back in May.
- As the relaunched version of Terra’s blockchain is pumping again, it’s important for investors not to fall for the same trick twice.
