Our reporters met directly with investors who were affected by the collapse of the cryptocurrency Luna and Terra.
They trusted CEO Kwon Do-hyeong and suffered a greater loss, and said that the cryptocurrency exchanges were also responsible for the incident.
Correspondent Son Ki-joon.
Investors who met with SBS reporters said that the price of Luna and Terra coins started to rise in earnest because of CEO Kwon Do-hyung's declaration that he would provide '20% annual interest' in March of last year.
[Victim A: Anchor protocol (interest) 20% was decisive.
Since that time last spring, the number of Terra has increased tremendously.
The deposit amount…
I was suspicious of the so-called 'Ponzi scam', but when I saw that too many people had invested, the concern disappeared.
[Victim A: There were definitely people around who thought it was a Ponzi scam.
There is a site called 'Defirama' where you can see the amount deposited in DeFi (Decentralized Finance).
You can see the increase in the amount deposited with Terra.]
When the Luna and Terra market prices plummeted on the 11th, I had no choice but to believe and wait for CEO Kwon Do-hyung's words, 'There is a recovery plan.'
[Victim B: Because he only suggests 'trust and wait', and he maintains his attitude as if he had prepared something else...
Waiting for it did a lot more damage.
[Victim A: The time when Luna was selected as the main item for the (trading) commission business was different, and the victims have no choice but to think that they abetted it.]
What the victims want is a clear understanding of the truth and punishment for those responsible.
[Victim B: Through a thorough investigation, I think that CEO Kwon Do-hyung will be punished and the people involved will also be punished.
I think a thorough investigation is necessary.]Keywords:
