Regarding the cryptocurrency Luna crash, YTN reporters confirmed the local office in Singapore actually used by developer Dohyeong Kwon, CEO of Terraform Labs.

Representative Kwon left his office about a month before the Lunar crash, and the prosecution is considering a plan to invalidate his passport to directly investigate Kwon, who is known to be staying in Singapore.

Reporter Shin Ji-won reports exclusively.

The Lunar crash that shook the global cryptocurrency market.

There are only rumors that he is staying in Singapore, and the whereabouts of developer Kwon Do-hyung is unknown.

This is the address of the Singapore corporation registered by CEO Kwon of Terraform Labs.

[싱가포르 법인 등기상 주소지 관계자 : 그 사무실은 몇 달 전부터 보수 중입니다.]

There is a law firm at the address listed on the Internet.

[테라폼랩스 싱가포르 주소지 관계자 : 더는 그 회사(테라폼랩스)를 위해 일하지 않습니다.]

This led to speculation that the Singapore corporation was a ghost company for tax evasion purposes.

However, as a result of local coverage by YTN, it was confirmed that CEO Kwon set up an actual office elsewhere and worked with the employees.

[공유 사무실 직원 : 무슨 회사를 찾으시죠? (테라폼랩스요.) 아, 지금은 여기 안 옵니다. (예전에는 있었나요?) 예전에는 있었는데, 지금은 여기로 안 와요.]

CEO Kwon Do-hyeong changed office addresses even within Singapore.

Among them, this is the shared office used by Terraform Labs until just a month before the cryptocurrency price plummeted.

This address also appears in documents filed by Terraform Labs in U.S. courts in response to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission subpoena.

However, it was confirmed that it was vacated in April after a short-term lease of about 6 months.

It also coincides with the time of dissolution of the Seoul corporation.

[공유 사무실 안내직원 : 이제 막 새 회사가 들어왔어요. (테라폼랩스는) 지난 4월쯤 나갔어요.]

YTN also met with an official from a company that represented Kwon’s tax and accounting in Singapore.

He drew a line saying that he did not know about the allegations of fraud and tax evasion related to the Lunar crash.

[테라폼랩스 세무회계 담당자 : 우리는 테라폼랩스와 상관없습니다. 손 뗄 거예요.]

Last year, CEO Kwon underwent a tax investigation after it was revealed that he had stolen the income from cryptocurrency issued by the Singapore corporation as a tax haven.

[박서영 / 싱가포르 변호사 : (싱가포르는) 자본소득에 대한 세금도 없기 때문에…. 코인회사들 같은 경우에는 초기에 코인 금액을 굉장히 낮은 금액으로 발행해놓고, 코인 가격이 상승하면 상승한 금액에 대한 세금은 없기 때문에….]

The prosecution is also looking into the allegations of tax evasion after securing data from the National Tax Service’s tax investigation.

In order to directly investigate Kwon, we are considering compulsory investigation measures, such as invalidating the passport.

This is YTN Shin Ji-won.
