III HT Burn Program Adjustment
1. Considering that price of HT at the end of the second quarter is quite high, the value of tokens burnt this round was adjusted to reflect Huobi's actual average repurchase price.
2. The token burn carried out for the second quarter of 2019 will be the last time HT tokens will be burnt using the traditional buyback method. Following the introduction of the HT Tiered Fee deduction program, Huobi Global will directly effect token burns against HT revenue.
3. In order to further enhance the transparency of HT burn and reduce the impact of the release of team allocation reserves on the market, Huobi will carry out further enhancements to the token burn program.
In July 2019, a community vote will be carried out with regards to two (2) proposed changes below:
1) To adjust the token burn cycle from quarterly to monthly or daily;
2) Confirm the release and token burn proportion of team allocation reserves.
Ⅳ Development plan of Huobi Token in the next stage
Following the HT repurchase and token burn in the first quarter, the total token supply has decreased. In the second quarter, HT was strengthened with the consecutive introduction of FastTrack Vote-to-list events, and HT Tiered Fee discounts. In addition, Huobi’s long-awaited Public Chain is scheduled to launch in the second quarter.
1. Through the weekly FastTrack Vote-to-list events, project candidates that have yet to the list will undergo a HT voting process. The winning project will list on Huobi Main, and the total HT votes received will be destroyed the same day.
2. The latest HT Tiered Fee discounts applying to crypto-crypto trading (including margin trading) will be officially implemented. Subsequent efforts will be undertaken at a later stage to support margin interest, OTC, contracts and other related businesses.
3. Huobi Financial Public Chain program announces that HT will play an important role as the native token, HT application use-case will enter a new phase of development. With the continuous development of the Huobi eco-system, HT holders will receive even more rewards.
4. Reducing supply and increasing application will continue to be implemented to further develop HT destruction and application use-cases.
