Albright Capital drops lawsuit against Terraform Labs and Do Kwon

Albright Capital has dropped its lawsuit against Terraform Labs and its founder Do Kwon, according to a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal filed in U.S. District Court on January 9. Before its dismissal, the lawsuit had alleged that the company had violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”) by operating the stablecoin, UST, as a “Ponzi scheme.”

Three Arrows Capital (3AC) co-founder Su Zhu posted the dismissal to Twitter, saying:

Zhu had previously claimed that the bankruptcy of 3AC was partially caused by UST’s collapse. The lawsuit was dismissed “without prejudice,” meaning that the plaintiff has the option to refile it in the future if desired.

US Dollar Terra (UST) was an algorithmic stablecoin created by Terraform labs. It ran on the Terra network, whose native coin was LUNA. UST was backed by an equivalent dollar amount of LUNA as collateral, and each UST coin was supposed to be pegged to $1 on the secondary market. However, LUNA collapsed in value in May, causing UST to become undercollateralized. UST lost its peg as a result and is now worth only $0.02 per coin.

South Korean authorities issued an arrest warrant for Kwon in September, and the company has faced multiple lawsuits alleging that UST was a fraud. This particular lawsuit alleged that UST “amounted to a Ponzi scheme that was only sustained by the demand for UST created by Anchor’s excessive yields.” However, the lawsuit has now been dismissed by the plaintiff.
