A streamer gets arrested in Korea for ringing the doorbell of the Terra founder

A streamer gets arrested in Korea for ringing the doorbell of the Terra founder

Seoul police arrested a streamer for videotaping and streaming his visit to the home of Terra ecosystem founder Do Kwon. 

According to the BBC, the streamer said that he lost about $2.4 million in investments because of the Terra collapse.

"I felt like I was going to die. I lost a lot of money in a short period of time. Around $2.4 million of my cryptocurrency was wiped out." - he said.

Chancers claims he made his fortune by actively investing in cryptocurrencies since 2017. In his words, he was one of the top 1% of investors in Korea. The streamer lost $800,000 on the Terra ecosystem. It is not disclosed what other cryptocurrencies Chancers has invested in.

Streamer says he tried to contact Do Kwon over the Internet but got no response to his inquiries. Then he got Terra's founder's address online and decided to make a visit to his home:

"I wanted to ask him about his plans for Luna. I suffered a huge loss and wanted to talk to him directly," Chancers says.

When Chancers rang the doorbell, Kwon's wife answered, saying her husband wasn't home. Local media later reported that police summoned the streamer for questioning.
