Singapore (January 21, 2018) – Leading Global Blockchain Asset Service Provider, Huobi Global, will officially be launching Huobi Token (Token Name/Symbol: HT) on 24 January 2018, Tuesday, 10:00 AM GMT+8. 300-millions tokens will be distributed within 15-days.

HT is a point system based on blockchain distribution and management, running natively on the Ethereum blockchain with ERC 20. HT can be used in various ways, of which, the most basic use of HT is for the discount on trading fees, of up to 50 percent.

Huobi Token (HT) is not an initial coin offering (ICO). Users can only get HT by purchasing ‘Point Card’ on Huobi Pro. Point Card is Huobi’s pre-paid card for basic service charge-trading fees. 1 point = 1 USDT. For example, if you purchase the 1,000 Point Card package, is will only cost USDT 990, and you will get 1,000 HT for free. Points can be used for offsetting the trading fees.

Distribution method

Huobi Global will only be distributing and strictly limiting to a fixed total of 500-million HT, never to be increased.

Amount (HT)  Distribution
60% 300,000,000 will be given as gifts with the purchase of Point Cards on Huobi Pro, over 15 days
20% 100,000,000 will be used for user rewards and platform operations
20% 100,000,000 will be used as team incentives. Tokens are locked for 4-years and 25-million tokens will be distributed each year

Exchange For Popular Coins

Huobi Tokens (HT) can be exchanged to USDT, BTC and ETH in Huobi Pro.

Buyback method

Each quarter, Huobi Pro will use 20% of its income to buyback the Huobi Tokens in the open market. All the HT that were bought back will be allocated to Huobi Investor Protection Fund (HIPF) in a certain proportion. The HIPF is used to protect investors’ benefits and compensate for the losses by Huobi users when risks occur in the platform, to ensure market stability and protect the interests of investors.

For example if the quarterly profits of Huobi Pro is US$100-million, Huobi Pro will be using $20-million to buyback HT consecutively over a period of time.

Value of HT

With the HT you can buy different grades of VIP membership, which provides you trading different fee discount percentage accordingly, up to 50%.
