Terraform Labs, the organization behind the Terra USD stablecoin (USTC), has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S. District of Delaware. The decision comes as a strategic move amid ongoing legal disputes, including a significant lawsuit from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) following the collapse of Terra/Luna.
The Terraform Labs CEO noted that the bankruptcy filing is crucial to address outstanding legal issues, confident that this action will aid the company's commitment to advancing innovative tools and infrastructure. The bankruptcy announcement comes ahead of a trial with the SEC, where both co-founder Kwon and Terraform Labs face litigation connected to a $40 billion ecosystem collapse.
Alongside this development, the values of multiple Terra-based tokens experienced significant drops. USTC, for instance, saw a drop of 7.64%, while the native token LUNA also dipped by 7%. These developments, however, align with a broader trend in the crypto market, with major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum also facing value decrements.
