The deal could value Huobi at as much as $3 billion, according to a report published on Friday by Bloomberg. Li is reportedly looking offload roughly a 60% stake in the company. The report stated that a deal could be concluded this month.
Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX and Tron founder Justin Sun have held discussions with Huobi about acquiring the shares, according to Bloomberg.
A spokesperson for Huobi confirmed to Bloomberg that Li had discussed a potential sale with several institutions. “He hopes that the new shareholders will be more powerful and resourceful, and that they will value the Huobi brand and invest more capital and energy to drive the growth of Huobi,” they said.
TheBlockCo has contacted Huobi for comment but did not hear back by press time.
