A South Korean court has issued an arrest warrant against the co-founder of the now defunct stablecoin issuer Terraform Labs , Do Kwon, according to a Bloomberg report.

The warrant comes a few months after the Terra ecosystem and its stablecoin (UST) collapsed, which led to a massive ripple effect in the crypto markets.
