HUSD’s depeg comes shortly after the exchange’s decision to delist the stablecoin. The exchange further declared how it would help its users convert their HUSD holdings into USDD, a stablecoin founded by Tron Network’s Justin Tron.

“As part of our continuous efforts to promote the healthy development of the blockchain ecosystem, Huobi Global will be ceasing the HUSD trading service and delisting HUSD in compliance with Article 11 of Huobi Global Token Management Rules The service termination and delisting of HUSD will start at 08:00 (UTC) on October 28, 2022. In the meantime, users’ HUSD assets will be converted to USDT assets at a 1:1 ratio. We will publish another announcement to notify users of the completion of the conversion, which is expected to occur before November 4, 2022 (GMT+8).” The exchange stated

Speculations are rife in the crypto market about whether Huobi has been purchased and acquired by Tron crypto founder Justin Sun. As per Wu blockchain, the firm has already been taken over by Sun, who is currently in the process of initiating mass layoffs in its bid to stabilise the exchange’s operations.

According to people familiar with the huobi, the former CEO and CFO of Huobi have resigned. Justin Sun’s TRON team has taken over important departments of Huobi. Huobi has 1,600 employees, Justin Sun believes that there are too many people, and there may be large-scale layoffs. https://t.co/bdMqeYPCrE

Wu further claims that FTX founder and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried has played an elemental role in the entire Huobi buyout process.

“But it is rumoured that FTX has invested to help Justin Sun. This may also push Binance, which has been supporting Justin Sun, to the position of his competitor. ” As mentioned in Wu Blockchain’s substack post

However, Tron crypto founder Justin Sun is yet to confirm such rumors. Sun recently took to Twitter to announce his new role as Huobi’s global advisor, but did not share any details related to Huobi’s alleged acquisition.

I am very honored to be appointed as a member of the Global Advisory Board of @HuobiGlobal and work with industry, academic, and policy leaders to help guide and grow this innovative, vibrant, and resilient organization in its latest chapter of global expansion. Full sail ahead. https://t.co/txZspJaV4Q
