According to the Oct. 26 thread, Sun said that HTX generated a total of $202 million in revenues during the quarter, which was offset by $104 million in expenses, leaving a total profit of $98 million. For Q4 2023, Sun projects that HTX will generate $190 million in revenue, along with $88 million in expenditures, for an estimated profit of $104 million.
Despite Sun’s outlook, not all has been well with HTX’s operations. During the Token2049 event in Singapore last month, Edward Chen, managing director of HTX Ventures, revealed in a panel that the exchange has reduced its staff count from 2,500 early this year to 900. In January, the exchange allegedly crushed an employee revolt after many staff salaries were cut and bonuses removed due to falling revenues.
