Nansen noted that wallets with high balances, Tether (USDT) and USD Coin (USDC), and Ethereum (ETH), had the most withdrawals.

Meanwhile, Huobi’s adviser, Tron founder Justin Sun, sent $100 million to Huobi. Sun has withdrawn $100 million in USDT and USDC from Binance, according to on-chain research firm Look On Chain. Further Etherscan data shows that $100 million was sent to Huobi.

Mr. Sun tweeted that the key to Fovey’s success is “ignoring FUD[fear, uncertainty and doubt]and just getting on with it.”

Integrity Concerns Over Huobi Token

“Huobi appears to be in a very vulnerable position right now,” said Ki Young Ju, CEO of analytics firm CryptoQuant.

He noted that while Huobi’s Bitcoin (BTC) reserves have fallen by 90% over the past year, Binance has more than doubled. According to CryptoQuant, Huobi’s active user addresses have also dropped significantly.

“Huobi’s active users have dropped more than 40-fold from their peak in May 2019, and were 20x higher than Binance’s to 1 as of January 3, 2023,” the report said.

A particular concern in this difficult situation is the health of Huobi Token (HT).

As CryptoQuant pointed out in a recent report, Huobi has the “dirtiest” holdings among major exchanges and is heavily dependent on its own Huobi tokens. OKX and Deribit, on the other hand, are the cleanest.

Nansen points out that Huobi owns 81% of the circulating supply of Huobi tokens, or 131.6 million HT out of 162.2 million HT.

According to CoinGecko data, Huobi token had a 24-hour trading volume of just $21 million against a market cap of $770 million.

The trading volume to market capitalization, the so-called depth (market depth), is just over 2%, which is smaller than other crypto assets with similar market capitalization according to CoinGecko data. In a recent column, Clara Medalie, research director at cryptocurrency data firm Kaiko, said a depth of less than 2% was a red flag for FTX’s exchange token, FTT. pointed out.
