Justin Sun was recently named as an advisor to Huobi as part of restructuring plans to transfer ownership to About Capital, Huobi’s new owner.

News emerged on Oct. 10 that Justin Sun was the brain behind the acquisition deal. According to WuBlockchain, About Capital was “more of a bridge” for the Tron founder to complete the acquisition.
