Months after finally admitting he was a part of the group that snapped up Poloniex late last year, Tron founder Justin Sun appears to be using the once-dominant cryptocurrency exchange’s reputation to boost the credibility of his week-old stablecoin.
Derivatives trading platform Huobi DM has announced a new feature designed to “minimize user exposure during times of severe market volatility” in digital assets. Its solution is to unveil a new mechanism that performs liquidation gradually.
Actually, it’s more like Binance and Huobi are helping the Steem community abandon Sun. On March 17, leading Steem developers and community members announced Hive, a hard fork of the social blogging platform’s blockchain designed with one goal: to recreate Steem without the 65 million STEEM tokens (and their 20% governance vote) Sun received when he acquired blockchain developer Steemit.
The Poloniex crypto exchange has offered an update on a major price crash that triggered a loss of 1,800 BTC back in May 2019—and delivered what appears to be a scathing rebuke to the company’s previous owners.
