- Sun, who is the founder of blockchain network Tron, tweeted on Wednesday that Huobi intends to “go all in the Caribbean” and that the exchange will work closely with the region’s island nation, Dominica, to develop crypto infrastructure.
One of our biggest goals is to go all in the Caribbean.

- The Caribbean has successfully lured some of crypto’s biggest businesses, including crypto exchange FTX, which moved its headquarters to the Bahamas from Hong Kong last year.
- Huobi is also encouraging its staff at its Seychelles headquarters to move to the Caribbean, Sun said in an interview with Financial Times.
- In October, Sun was appointed as a member of Huobi’s global advisory board and promoted a link to Huobi in his Twitter profile, but has repeatedly denied his involvement in the rumored purchase of a majority stake in the exchange.
