  • Huobi saw a record $64 million in outflows over the weekend.
  • The Outflows followed reports that the exchange’s executives had been arrested in China.
  • An Angel investor has also pointed to inconsistencies in Huobi’s reserves.

Huobi customers withdrew $64 million over the weekend due to worries about the cryptocurrency exchange company going bankrupt and rumours that Chinese authorities were looking into their management.

All these started on August 4 after Chinese authorities allegedly detained Huobi’s top executives. It was reported that the arrests were the result of an investigation into the exchange’s ties to betting websites.

Huobi woes

The rules governing cryptocurrency trading platforms appear to be getting stricter in China. Also, uncertainty exists regarding whether the recent resignation of one of the exchange’s senior executives was related to the ongoing investigations in China.

However, Huobi’s social media manager refuted the allegations and stated that the exchange is “currently doing well.”

But according to angel investor and fintech executive Adam Cochran, Huobi is allegedly having financial issues. Adam Cochran has specifically pointed to some inconsistencies in the exchange’s Tether (USDT) balances.

According to Cochran, Huobi’s most recent “Merkle Tree Audit” claims that they hold $630 million in USDT, but on-chain data revealed that as of August 5, they had less than $90 million in assets, which according to the investor suggests that Huobi might not be able to pay its debts.

Justin Sun, the CEO of the Huobi Exchange, responded to the circulating allegations of the crypto exchange being about to fail and called it a FUD.
