Internal strife reported to Huobi Global
It was reported earlier this week that Huobi Global is asking employees to accept salaries in stablecoins instead of fiat currencies, and if the employees refuse, they could be fired from the company. Now it is reported that the crypto exchange has blocked all internal communication groups in an attempt to curb the rebellion. Post these reports, Huobi Global’s trading volume and the value of its native token fell sharply. At the time of writing, Huobi Token is down 9% and is trading at $4.34. The token is down almost 30% in the last 30 days.
Justin Sun announces 20% layoff
Wu Blockchain reported earlier this month that Huobi Global plans to lay off a large number of employees. Justin Sun confirmed to Reuters today that Huobi will lay off 20% of its staff. In an internal memo to Huobi staff, Justin Sun said they were like “fire in this crypto winter.” However, he did not comment on reports of internal conflicts at the stock exchange.
Justin Sun also led Tron’s algorithmic stablecoin USDD yesterday. The stablecoin reached a low of $0.9754.
