Ⅲ Development Plans for Huobi Token
Following the release of the All Star VIP Tiered Fee Promotion in Q3, thereby increasing HT holding and token burn volume, Q4 saw the introduction of HT as a collateral asset, and the subsequent announcement of limits placed on use of HT reserves under the Investor Protection Fund, as well as Platform Operations expenditure.
This allows for increased HT application use-case under a stable deflationary model, allowing for the continuous reduction of HT circulation supply. The next quarter will see further dual implementation of deflationary and application use-case strategies, to facilitate the internationalization of HT and build-up of the HT eco-system.
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!
