South Korea's 'Grim Reaper' Task Force To Investigate Terra (LUNA) Collapse

South Korea has revived the ‘Yeouido Grim Reaper’ financial crimes task force to investigate the collapse of Terra’s LUNA/USD stablecoin TerraUSD UST/USD.

What Happened: According to a report from local news publication SBS, the Yeouido Grim Reaper team was officially reinstated on Wednesday after disbanding over two years ago.

The task force consists of 48 people made up of seven prosecutors and other executives serving in the Financial Services Commission and the Financial Supervisory Service. 

The group will look into the events surrounding Terra’s demise and the extent of investor damage caused.


Terra’s market cap fell from $41 billion to under $950 million over one week. Reports estimate at least 280,000 domestic investors have been burned by the project’s sudden demise.

SBS reported that these investors are taking group action against Do Kwon and preparing a class action lawsuit demanding the seizure of the Terra founder’s assets and property.
