Huobi has addressed the concerns raised as a result of Wu Blockchain’s tweet that highlighted over 10,000 ETH being moved out of the Huobi 34 wallet.

Huobi explained that a part of the publicized address is the hot wallet address and assured those concerned that the firm guarantees the security of user assets, 100% redemption and that it will not impose any restrictions on deposits and withdrawals.

Shortly after the Huobi disclosure announcement, concerns surrounding the asset snapshot of the asset reserve began to appear. Huobi moved 10,000 Ethereum (ETH) from the Huobi 34 wallet “to Binance and OKX deposit wallets,” as explained by Wu Blockchain.

At the time of the snapshot, a total of 14,858 ETH was held in the wallet. Just two minutes after, the 10,000 ETH in question was moved out of the wallet.

The Huobi 34 wallet discussed currently holds a total balance now of almost 18,000 ETH and continues to have regular transactions in, and out of the wallet.
