🤔 Do Kwon at the Risk of Extradition to U.S.

On December 7th, the Wall Street Journal revealed supposed plans to extradite Do Kwon to the U.S. The U.S. and South Korea have been vying to try Kwon for months, as he has been held in Montenegro. According to the WSJ, a Justice Minister in Montenegro has reportedly decided to send Kwon to the U.S. in light of the criminal charges linked to the collapse of TerraUSD and Luna.
