The project's official website and social media accounts have been deleted. SolPad, a platform for initial digital offerings (IDO) which listed listed Luna Yield two days prior to the rug pull, said the team behind Luna Yield withdrew all liquidity and moved the funds to Tornado Cash, a mixer based on smart-contract, to avoid tracking.

Prior the incident, Solana listed the project on its main page. However, after Luna's developers gone dark, Solana's team removed the project's logo from the website. The archived version of the webpage is still available on Wayback Machine.
