It is also reported that About Capital Management was involved in the deal because Huobi founder Li Lin feared that the Chinese government would be dissatisfied with the move, which in turn would affect his safety. According to Wublock, Justin Sun has already made a welcoming speech to the exchange staff, in which he stated that the overall work would revolve around the HT token, but Huobi would not return to the Chinese market. 

Huobi has tens of millions of Chinese users and was once Binance’s biggest competitor. Huobi announced the sale to About Capital with a red background in Hong Kong, but the core investor behind it is Justin Sun. 

SBF previously said it would not buy Huobi, but rumor has it that FTX invested to help Justin Sun make the deal. 

Buidlbee sent a request for comment to Huobi, but at the time of writing, we haven’t received an answer.
