3. HT has been applied in the Huobi Pool service fee and Huobi Prime. The application of HT has been expanded to community service providers, several incubators and top mining machines, top 10 mining pools and 30+ media in the crypto-world. With the development of Huobi Ecosystem, HT holders will be able to enjoy more benefits.
Since it was founded in 2013, Huobi Group has upheld the idea of “empower financial services and liberate global wealth” as its mission and “putting users first” as its concept. Huobi Group is committed to offering secure, professional, credible, and quality services. As the core of Huobi Global Ecosystem and HT will have more application scenarios. We hope that more partners can join in the ecology of Huobi, and grow together with us to promote the development of the blockchain industry!
