The traffic on exchange websites plummeted by 10% month over month, with MEXC (+27%), Bitget (+14%), and Bitmart (+15%) being the top three gainers. The top decliners — FTX, Huobi, and OKX declined by 33%, 21%, and 20% respectively. The US, Russia, and Korea are the primary suppliers of traffic.

In related developments, it was reported recently that FTX is looking into possibly acquiring some of the company shares that Huobi founder Leon Li wants to sell. Huobi Global, which has its headquarters in Seychelles, is one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges, according to statistics provided by CoinGecko, a digital currency data aggregator.

Huobi Global’s daily transaction volume is more than $1 billion. If all goes according to plan, the transaction will be one of the biggest ever signed in the crypto industry. It is expected that the purchase will be finalized at the end of this month. FTX has neither acknowledged nor rejected the claims yet.
