As things stand, the decentralized finance (DeFi) token’s market capitalization currently amounts to $983.46 million after $32.33 million bled from it over the course of 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap data.
Notably, the change in LUNC’s price and market cap arrives as the whereabouts of the founder of the Terra (LUNA) ecosystem, who is accused of fraud in connection with the platform’s demise, were revealed to be in Serbia, as reported by the Korean media outlet Chosun on December 12.
The report quoted an official from the Korean investigative authorities as saying that the “recently obtained information that he was in Serbia was discovered to be true.” According to the source, the Korean Justice Ministry was in the process of seeking a public investigation from the Serbian government.

More recently, Terraform Labs founder was slapped with a new $57 million-worth representative action lawsuit in Singapore over his role in the Terra crash, with over 300 plaintiffs accusing him of misleading claims about the TerraUSD (UST) stablecoin.
