Tron (TRX) CEO and Huobi stakeholder Justin Sun has lodged a series of accusations against the brother of Huobi founder Li Lin, Li Wei, alleging that he acquired Huobi’s native token (HT) “abnormally” at zero cost and sold it for “huge amounts of cash.”
The token has lost 43% of its value over the past seven days but has recovered by 3.16% following Sun’s tweets.
Sun told CoinDesk that Li Wei “received millions of HT tokens for free” when the token was initially distributed.
“Li Wei has been consistently selling off these HT tokens and cashing out. Now, the HT DAO committee is stepping in to rectify this issue,” he said. “We plan to engage with Li Wei to negotiate a refund and arrange for the destruction of his remaining HT tokens.”
Sun added that Wei has not made any contributions to the HT community and that he believes in rewarding those who “genuinely contribute to the growth and development of HT DAO.”
HT is currently trading at $2.80 with a market cap of $450 million, it reached an all-time high of $33.28 in May, 2021, according to CoinMarketCap.
