FTX founder Sam Bangman-Fried (SBF) took to Twitter to defend the Terra Ecosystem and its CEO and co-founder Do Gwon.

In response to a Coindesk article describing Do Gwon as Elizabeth Holmes of Crypto, Bankman-Fried disagreed. “Not all bad things are the same bad thing.โ€

According to the SBF, Luna / USD is very transparent, and Dow Kuan stood by it despite signs that it could disintegrate. Du Quan UST was supported by unstable assets and never lied that it could collapse.
