More details about the incident. On November 9, crypto exchange Huobi and TRON founder Justin Sun, who is a member of its global advisory board, announced a willingness to provide a 1:1 exchange of TRX, BTT, JST, SUN, and HT tokens for FTX’s affected users if the platform is unable to do so itself. As a result, the rate of Huobi’s native token on FTX jumped by 581% in 24 hours.

On November 9, CoinGecko provided data on a 3% decline in the rate of the USDT stablecoin from the Tether issuer.
