As per reports, a South Korean District Court rejected the prosecution’s claims around the crypto LUNA. However, the court also dismissed the state’s appeal of confiscating Hyun-Seong Shin, Terraform Labs’ former co-CEO.
In the judgment, the court mentioned that it is difficult to see LUNA (now LUNC) as a financial investment product that can be regulated by the Capital Markets Act.
