Terraform Laboratories has Announced the appointment of Chris Amani as interim chief executive officer (CEO), replacing co-founder Do Kwon.
Terraform Labs Elevates Former COO Chris Amani as Interim Director and CEO
Chris Amani, a seasoned leader with more than two decades of experience in the technology industry, has been selected as interim CEO of Terraform Labs. Having served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) since joining the company in 2021, Amani brings valuable knowledge and experience to this new role.
Previously, Amani held leadership positions at prominent technology companies such as MongoDB, Electronic Arts, and Zynga. His deep understanding of TFL’s operations and strategy positions him to guide the company through its current challenges and advance his mission.
This decision comes as Kwon faces possible extradition to South Korea or the United States from Montenegro, where he is currently serving a prison sentence.
Sailing Through Troubled Waters: Terra’s Comeback Plan
Terra, known for its TerraUSD and Luna cryptocurrencies, faced a significant setback in May 2022 when the collapse of its stablecoin caused a ripple effect throughout the cryptocurrency market.
Co-founder Do Kwon’s legal troubles further exacerbated the situation, with charges of misleading investors and alleged involvement in illicit transactions during the crash.
Amid these challenges, Chris Amani expressed his commitment to revive the Terra blockchain and focus on developing applications that provide real utility.

TFL’s comeback plan involves executing a clear vision of Terra’s role within the broader Web3 ecosystem, which Amani and the team are dedicated to implementing.
The new CEO emphasized the importance of community collaboration and shared goals during this rebuilding phase. With approximately 40 employees, the company will continue to operate without Do Kwon’s leadership as he focuses on taking care of his legal matters.
The team is optimistic about its ability to salvage the situation and is actively working on plans to move the company forward. However, the legal issues surrounding Do Kwon’s involvement in the collapse have been a major point of concern.
Terra’s recovery plan is not without its complexities, but the team is determined to restore value to the Terra Classic ecosystem.
Amain, in his statement, said: “The process will not be easy, but we have a clear vision of where Terra fits within the broader Web3 ecosystem and we are very focused on executing against that vision. We look forward to sharing more about this soon.”
The plan involves reducing node sync times, creating a TerraUSD testnet, developing apps that drive performance, and implementing a developer rewards system.
