Analyst Sounds Alarm: Is Justin Sun, HTX at Risk of Becoming the Next SBF?"

The crypto-focused YouTube channel “Discover Crypto” recently raised concerns about the HTX exchange and Tron founder Justin Sun, drawing parallels to the difficulties faced by FTX’s Sam Bankman-Fried. According to the channel, Sun’s business operations may face similar issues as FTX.

The host of Discover Crypto expresses concerns about Justin Sun’s management style, implying similar risks to those faced by Sam Bankman-Fried.

Sun, who founded the multibillion-dollar Tron blockchain, is currently being investigated for his previous actions.

The channel sheds light on contentious events in Tron’s history, such as how Sun allegedly earned more than $70 million from Tron’s ICO in 2017 despite China’s crypto restrictions. Furthermore, the video claims that Sun later relocated to Korea in order to avoid potential legal consequences.

Discover Crypto also mentions a workplace harassment lawsuit filed against Justin Sun in the United States in 2019. The lawsuit accused Sun of bias and tampering with documents to conceal the case, raising concerns about his actions.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged Justin Sun with market manipulation in connection with TRX trading, adding to the scrutiny.

According to Discover Crypto, these allegations could lead Sun and his projects down a similar path as FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried.

While these claims have yet to be proven, the video emphasizes the potential impact on Justin Sun’s reputation as well as the importance of investors remaining vigilant in the face of an evolving situation.
