III Changes to the HT Burn Program
1. Value of Huobi tokens (HT) burnt in this round is based on actual repurchase price.
2. In July 2019, a community vote was carried out regarding enhancements to the token burn program. Starting fourth quarter 2019, 15% of quarterly HT revenue will be burnt, with 5% derived from the token burn of HT allocations to Employee Incentives, so as to ensure they do not enter the secondary market.
Ⅳ Development Plans for Huobi Token
As with the second quarter, HT continued to drive Huobi FastTrack Vote-to-List promotions, as well as the HT Tiered Fee discount program. In the third quarter, the use of HT was further expanded to support discounted Margin Tiered Fee Rates. At the same time, the launch of the Huobi All Star VIP program significantly increased the amount of HT held and consumed.
1. HT will drive Prime and FastTrack Vote-to-list promotions, providing the industry with an efficient and innovative listing business model. In the process, all HT votes received for the FastTrack listing project will be burnt.
2. Huobi will expand the scope of products supported under the HT Tiered Fee program. HT forms the core of application business use cases on the exchange. Subsequent efforts will be undertaken at a later stage to support OTC, contracts and other related businesses.
3. Huobi will further develop the Margin Tiered Fee product in an attempt to reduce the cost of margin loans and further empower HT.
4. The Huobi Financial Public Chain is undergoing development smoothly. HT will pay an important role in the development of the Public Chain, thus allowing HT’s value to be supported by the broader financial eco-system.
5. Huobi will continue to apply the dual strategy of reducing the supply of HT and increasing HT application use cases.
As the world's leading digital asset financial service provider, Huobi Group is committed to providing a better trading experience, greater account security and better customer service. We expect even more partners to participate in and grow with Huobi’s eco-system! Huobi Group will empower the blockchain industry and witness the continued development of HT with all users!
