This is coming not long after the reported arrest of Star Xu (Xu MingXing), Founder of OKEx in October. OKEx released a statement saying it had suspended withdrawals because one of its private custodian was cooperating with a public bureau in an investigation.
Local media later reported that it was actually Star Xu that was cooperating in an investigation after he was ‘taken away’ by the police.
After quelling the rumor via the tweets, Huobi thanked the community for their support and trust however, that may not be enough as a twitter user said “Get the guy to say this on a live stream then”
