Terraform Founder to Face Multi-billion Dollar Securities Fraud Charges

There he was arrested for attempting to leave the country using falsified travel documents. He was detained at the island nation for a while and the local courts denied the appeal of authorities for extradition to either the United States or South Korea.

If he is to travel to either jurisdiction, he may have to deal with multiple lawsuits in those nations. If the authorities are able to prove allegations against Kwon, he may have to serve 40-year sentence where he has committed investor fraud and other crimes associated with the Terraforma Labs issued tokens.

Hackers Mock Algorand CEO after Hacking her X Account for an Hour

Algorand CEO Staci Warden recently faced some issues with her X account. The project aims to be a green decentralized blockchain network as per the Algorand Foundation’s official website. Following the hack attempt, the Algorand Foundation X account posted an update on the platform informing the investors regarding the hacking incident.

The page also asked the investors to refrain from clicking on any links shared on her X timeline or responding to direct messages. The hackers posted on the X account of Warden after hacking it on 26th January noting that the Algorand community was poor and used an inappropriate racial slur in the same sentence.

After this post, the hacker went on to post on the profile asking community members to sell Algorand coins and purchase ETH. Following these posts, the hackers continued to post fabricated stories about how Justin Sun, co-founder of the Tron project was going to boost Algorand to new heights in a satirical manner.

The hackers noted that all they had to do was to give control of the project to Sun and allow him to mint new tokens in the form of TrueUSD.  Hackers also mentioned that he accepted the offer and Algorand will soon be pegged to a very real USD to start a new era of digital commerce. At the same time, hackers took a dig at Sun noting that his crypto projects will lead to the next big collapse in crypto.
