SEC Seeks Billions in Fines from Terraform, Do Kwon

Having witnessed the ups and downs of the crypto market and seen my fair share of scams and frauds, I can’t help but feel a pang of disappointment every time I hear about another instance of dishonesty in this industry.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) aims to impose penalties amounting to $4.7 billion, along with an additional $520 million in civil penalties. In contrast, Terraform Labs proposes a much lower fine of only $1 million and wishes to avoid any further penalties.

Simultaneously, they appeared less committed than others to sustaining the longevity of the crypto market.

With Do Kwon and Terraform Labs being ordered to pay a substantial penalty, it is clear that regulatory bodies are taking a more rigorous stance towards digital currencies.
