South Korean prosecutors have asked Interpol for help in arresting Do Kwon, the progenitor of a $60 billion cryptocurrency wipeout, as they seek to charge him with alleged crimes including breaking capital-markets laws. 

“Prosecutors on Monday have made a request to Interpol for their assistance to locate Kwon, whose whereabouts remain unknown, and to have him handed over to Korea,” the prosecutors office said late Monday in a text message.
