As recently reported in the Huobi token news, the global exchange Huobi denied the rumors about a senior executive being taken by the police, similarly to the OKEx situation that happened almost two weeks ago. The exchange has a monthly trading volume above $170 billion but denied the rumors that the senior executive of the platform was arrested.  The rumors were initiated on social media that the COO Robin Zhu of Huobi Global Limited based in Singapore, has been arrested by authorities. The exchange’s assurances haven’t stopped the users from taking out their money as they found themselves in a similar situation to OKEx. The founder of the exchange Xu Mingxing was detained by police back in October and the exchange stopped all withdrawals since October 16th.
