The Terraform Labs class action lawsuit was filed by investors who suffered significant loses in TerraUSD stable coins known as "Terra Tokens" against Defendants TerraForm Labs Pte. Ltd (“TFL”), Jump Crypto, Jump Trading LLC, Republic Capital, Republic Maximal LLC, Tribe Capital, DeFinance Capital, DeFinance Technologies, GSR/GSR Market Limited, Three Arrows Capital Pte. Ltd, TFL’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Do Kwon, and its Head of Research, Nicholas Platias. The action, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California asserts claims under §§5, 12(a)(1), and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), as well as under §§10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).
What Are the Allegations in the Terraform Labs Class Action Lawsuit?
TFL is a company that operates the Terra blockchain and its related protocol, which hosts, supports, and funds a community of decentralized financial applications and products known collectively as the Terra ecosystem. Plaintiffs allege that even though Terra Tokens have all the hallmarks of an investment contract, and thus a security, no registrations statements have ever been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission with respect to the various Terra Tokens. In addition to alleging the sell of unregistered securities, the Terraform Labs class action lawsuit also alleges Defendants made false and misleading statements regarding the largest Terra ecosystem digital asests by market cap, UST and LUNA, in order to induce the plaintiffs and other investors into purchasing these digital assets at inflated rates.
TFL repeatedly touted and promoted the stability of UST and LUNA and the sustainability of the Anchor Protocol, a type of high-yield savings account where investors can "stake" or deposit UST with TFL in exchange for a guaranteed 20% APY interest rate. However, between May 6, 2022 and May 9, 2022 structural infirmities specific to the Terra ecosystem exposed a crack in UST's ability to maintain its pet to $1. The truth, according to the Terraform Labs class action lawsuit, regarding the stability and sustainability of the UST/LUNA pair and the Anchor Protocol could not be hidden any longer from investors, and withing a week, the price of UST and LUNA collapsed by approximately 91% and 99.7%, respectively, as investors suffered significant losses in Terra Tokens.
What is the Definition of the Class?
All persons and entities, other than Defendants and their affiliates, who purchased so-called Terra Tokens from May 20, 2021 to May 25, 2022 inclusive (the “Class Period”), and who were damaged thereby.
What Is a Lead Plaintiff and when Is the Deadline?
Lead plaintiff motions for the Terraform Labs class action lawsuit must be filed with the court no later than August 19, 2022. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased and suffered losses in Terra Tokens to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Terraform Labs class action lawsuit.
