Later on, reports appeared about Sun making a speech to all Huobi employees. He stated that his work would revolve around Huobi Token HT and that it would not return to the Chinese market.

Considering the fact that Sun will be officially working on bringing more value to the exchange's token, it is not yet clear what steps the founder of Tron is willing to take in order to bring more attention and use cases to the token.

In terms of technical analysis, HT has not shown anything exceptional while moving in the downtrend for the last few weeks. In August 2022, the exchange's token took at least two attempts to break through local resistance levels and then retraced back below the 50-day moving average.

As for now, HT is trading at $4.8 with a 20% price increase in the last 24 hours.
