Mike Alfred, an investor who served as a board member of the BTCminer Iris Energy and digital asset investment platform Eaglebrook Advisors, earlier today pronounced some warnings on USDD stablecoin and Huobi Exchange.
According to Alfred, Justin Sun owns Shadow Huobi, and he may be the “most unpredictable billionaire in crypto.” Justin has sent a handful of billions of dollars in stablecoins around the room, including in and out of exchanges like Binance, Alfred said. Adding: “Something big is afoot. Withdraw all coins from unregulated exchanges.”
He also went ahead to tackle Justin Suns USDD stablecoin, stating that the algorithmic stablecoin is based on Tron has broken the bond and may be on the verge of collapse. “It’s Code Red time in crypto again,” Alfred concluded.
Following allegations that Justin Sun appears to be shady Huobi, rumors are now spreading about an insolvency of the stock exchange. When a tweep commented on Alfred’s post, saying, “I doubt he’s a billionaire.” Alfred responded that Justin had paid out $1.5 billion to fiat over the past few months. “He loots Huobi before it crashes.”
Is Huobi really insolvent?
Several theories have fueled the rumor of Huobi’s bankruptcy. It was reported yesterday that Huobi has closed internal communication groups and feedback channels for employees and is now asking employees to receive their salaries stablecoins.
Although the confirmation of the rumor has not been confirmed and there have not been any reports of choking on Huobi withdrawals yet, the conclusion of whether the exchange is solvent or not is still a fairly uncertain prognosis.
Amid the ongoing Huobi rumors, the exchange has been in the red in trading volume for the past 24 hours. According to data from Coinmarketcap, Huobi’s 24-hour trading volume is down over 15% to $343 billion.
