• Huobi may soon become a public company on HKEX.
  • Huobi Token is unaffected by the news, off recent highs.

A Hong-Kong-based cryptocurrency exchange Huobi can become a public company through the reverse takeover of electronics maker Pantronics Holdings Limited, according to the information published on HKEX website.
The company may change its name to Huobi Technology Holdings Limited. In August 2018, Huobi Group bought 221 million ordinary shares for $77 million and thus became the largest investor of Pantronics Holdings Limited with the total share of 73%.
Also, starting from October 1, HKEX will tighten the rules for reverse takeovers, which may affect the plans of the cryptocurrency exchange. Notably, several manufacturers of cryptocurrency mining equipment, including Ebang, Caanan Creative and Bitmain, dropped their plans to get listed on HKEX.
