In his recent interview with Laura Shin, a host of the Unchained podcast and author of “The Cryptopians,” Do Kwon confessed that his Twitter persona formed under the influence of crypto Twitter’s sarcastically aggressive manner of speech. In retrospect, he regards some of his older tweets as “quite cringe,” but doesn’t intend to take them down.
“Just because there's anonymous cartoon characters that are, shall we say, more liberal with the words that they're using, does not mean that I should have followed suit,” Kwon reflected on his Twitter presence.
“Spending less time on social media and talking to people I think definitely would have helped probably let me get a lot more work done,” he added.
Kwon has been long using Twitter to attack his critics and other crypto projects, although his posts clearly became more toned down after the spectacular collapse of UST stablecoin, which caused a wide market contagion and reportedly drove several investors to suicide.
In an interview with Laura Shin, he reiterated, once again, that he isn’t hiding from law enforcement but refused to reveal his whereabouts.
"I could answer that, but the problem is that I don't want there to be a bunch of guesswork in terms of which country and which city I have been living in," he said. "The easier that I make it for people to figure out my location, the harder it is for me to continue regular life."
"Every time the location where I live becomes known, it becomes almost impossible for me to live there," he added.
