The exchange added that it will work together with HUSD’s issuer — Stable Universal Limited — to find a solution and restore its stability as soon as possible. As of press time, it remains unclear what caused the fall.

The incident appears just a few days after reports said that Huobi Founder, Leon Li, was in talks with a group of investors to sell his stake in the exchange. Li is reportedly aiming to sell his majority of stake for $3 billion.
