Rumors of Huobi acquisition abound, Tron sets new record
Justin Sun, the founder of Tron is rumored to be the real buyer of crypto exchange Huobi. Sources close to the matter reveal that Sun acquired Huobi with help from Samuel Bankman-Fried of FTX exchange.
Amidst the rumors, Tron network hit a new milestone. The total number of blockchain transactions surpassed the 4 billion mark. In the past 24 hours, the Tron blockchain added 4,812,800 transactions and the total value locked in TRX exceeded $12.5 billion. The total number of accounts on the network crossed 115 million after Tron became the second-largest public chain.
Red flags: Weighted social sentiment, development activity lag
Despite the recent enthusiasm among buyers, the weighted social sentiment among investors has remained relatively bearish. There is no significant increase in development activity on the Tron blockchain. Development activity is considered an indicator of a project’s relevance and future utility. At the same time, social sentiment is an indicator of future price trend or upcoming reversals in an asset.
Looking at TRX on-chain metrics, it is evident that development activity has fallen to all-time low levels and large wallet investors’ confidence in Tron remains low.
The percentage of stablecoin total supply held by whales is an indicator of their confidence in the asset. If the supply held by whales is low, as is the case with TRON, there is low confidence from whales.

Nevertheless, analysts at BeInCrypto believe Tron price could exceed the $0.065 level owing to the bullish momentum in the spot market and futures sentiment. An invalidation of the above long-term bearish thesis could push TRX price above the upper resistance at $0.070.
