The investor, who goes by the alias "Chancers," is a Korean social media star who hosts streams about cryptocurrencies. In the LUNA and UST collapses, he lost roughly 3 billion won ($2.4 million). He told the BBC:
“ I felt like I was going to die. I lost a lot of money in a short period of time. Around $2.4m of my cryptocurrency was wiped out.
On May 12, the disgruntled investor drove across his hometown and knocked on Kwon's door. He broadcast the event live on his YouTube channel, with roughly 100 people tuning in.
After ringing Kwon's condominium doorbell, his wife opened the door and said her husband was not there. She also contacted the cops, but when they arrived, Chancers had already left the building.
“I surrendered myself to the police station twice,” Chancers stressed, insisting: “I didn’t trespass on Do Kwon’s property, but according to Korean law, it’s illegal to just go there and try to talk. I didn’t know.”
