Hotbit Ceases Operations as Centralized Exchanges Struggle to Adapt in a Changing Crypto Landscape

Hotbit, a Shanghai-based cryptocurrency exchange, has recently made a surprising announcement that it will be ceasing all operations starting May 22. The decision comes as the platform believes that centralized exchanges are “becoming increasingly cumbersome” and are unlikely to meet long-term trends in the crypto industry.

The crypto lender Genesis Global Capital is in danger of going bankrupt. The crypto market is waiting in fear for another dump.

A report from Bloomberg on November 22 states that Genesis has $2.8 billion in unpaid debts on its balance sheet, with over 30% of those loans going to “related parties” such as its parent business Digital Currency Group and its affiliate and lending unit, Genesis Global Trading.
