• Joselit Ramirez, Venezuela’s top authority on crypto policies, has been removed from his position and arrested for suspicion of participating in a scheme to steal from the country’s oil operations.
• His removal has led to an overhaul of the national crypto department and the Venezuelan government has called for a comprehensive restructuring of the Superintendency of Crypto Assets and Related Activities (SUNACRIP).

Suspicion of Corruption

Venezuela’s top authority on crypto policies, Joselit Ramirez, has been removed from his position and arrested for suspicion of participating in a scheme to steal from Venezuela’s oil operations. Local media publication Últimas Noticias broke the story about Ramirez’s arrest by the National Anticorruption Police after a request was issued for judicial proceedings against „a series of citizens who could be involved in serious acts of administrative corruption and embezzlement of funds.“ The report states that Venezuelan authorities are investigating a case of corruption in which $3 billion from Venezuelan oil sales were diverted so as not to appear in the government’s official accounts.

Government Action

Venezuelan president Nicolas Madura removed Ramirez from his position for allegedly participating in a plan to steal from the country’s oil operations. President Madura declared: That it is the duty of the State to take all measures at its disposal to protect the Venezuelan people from the negative effects of the multiform aggression that is taking place against the country and, especially, against its economy. The restructuring will be coordinated by a mixed commission comprising a president and four directors endorsed by Madura. The Ministry of Economy, Finance, and Commerce will supervise the operation. A new board headed by Anabel Pereira Fernández will lead the organization going forward. Amongst this board’s new directors are Héctor Andrés Obregón Pérez, Luis Alberto Pérez González and Julio César Mora Sánchez.

Decree Restructuring

The Venezuelan government has called for a comprehensive restructuring of SUNACRIP (the Superintendency Of Crypto Assets And Related Activities) after Joselit Ramirez was arrested on March 17th on charges related to corruption within Venezuela’s Oil sector. This decree states that SUNACRIP will be restructured according to plans established by president Nicolas Maduro himself along with other members chosen specifically by him – these plans aim at protecting Venezuelans from any adverse effects caused due economic sanctions etc…

Official Statement

President Madura has not yet issued an official statement on this matter nor has he provided any reasons or evidence as to why Joselit Ramirez was removed besides suspicions relating to acts as such – however it can be assumed that he may have been involved in acts concerning corruption given local media reports stating such information surrounding his arrest etc…

FBI Probes Do Kwon in $Billion Crypto Crash

Overview of FBI Probe

  • The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has commenced an investigative probe into Terraform Labs and its disgraced founder and CEO, Do Kwon.
  • Do Kwon is the target of multiple international investigations and is on the Interpol Red Notice for his unknown location.
  • The FBI’s investigations are raising questions about Do Kwon’s involvement with the South Korean payment platform Chai.


The Singapore police, South Korean law enforcement, and the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) have all launched enforcement actions against the now-defunct company Terraform Labs and its founder Do Kwon. The company was behind the Terra-Luna stablecoin that crashed in May 2022, wiping out billions of dollars‘ worth of value from the crypto market. In October 2022, Do Kwon claimed he was not hiding out nor had disclosed his location to protect himself and denied all allegations of fraud at his company. He also stated that he personally lost funds due to the crash.

Chai Factor

In February 2023, the SEC filed a lawsuit against Terraform Labs and Do Kwon alleging that he misled investors regarding certain transactions on the Terra blockchain involving South Korean payment platform Chai. They accused him of claiming that Chai transactions were processed on their blockchain when in fact they used more traditional channels. This allegedly gave a false sense of legitimacy to their business.


> The FBI and prosecutors from the Southern District of New York (SDNY) are questioning former employees of Terraform Labs in regards to this case. The Department of Justice has yet to address if any charges will be filed against Do Kwon or his firm.

Interpol Red Notice

> As mentioned before, Do Kwon is on Interpol’s Red Notice as his exact whereabouts are unknown which makes it difficult for any law enforcement agency to apprehend him. Reports have suggested that he may be hiding out in Serbia although this has not been confirmed by any official source or government body yet.

Conclusion Despite denying all allegations against him, many countries across the world have opened up investigation proceedings into both Terraform Labs and their founder Do Kwon for various charges ranging from fraud to money laundering etcetera . It remains to be seen what kindof action will be taken against them by authorities such asthe FBI or other law enforcement agencies involved in this case .
