By holding the token, users will have early access to events, promotion activities, and to receive rewards. In this article, I will talk about everything you need to know about Huobi Token, plus an instruction on how to buy HT on MEXC.
How does Huobi Token work?
HT is one of the very essential components of the Huobi Eco Chain. The chain hosts decentralized finance (DeFi) applications such as decentralized lending and borrowing platforms. Its mission is to provide users access to new cryptocurrencies and the governance on making voting decisions for the platform. The HT Token is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum network, which offers users direct benefits in terms of platform effectiveness.
Benefits of Using HT Token
Huobi Token offers a few special advantages to Huobi users, but its main purpose is to maintain the efficiency of Huobi’s central exchange. The platform used HT as a tool to take on Binance and its native BNB cryptocurrency. HT wants to act as a standard form of payment for the entire Huobi ecosystem. The token is frequently used in corporate payments as well as over-the-counter (OTC) trading.
Huobi Token supports promotional airdrops, and token holders receive rewards in the form of HT whenever the exchange lists new crypto assets on its market. These prizes are given out by Huobi primarily to reward holders and to advertise the newly listed currency on the marketplace.
Tokenomics of HT
Jump Capital, a U.S. company, has a significant stake in HT. 60% of the tokens used to launch HT were given away by Huobi to users who purchased prepaid services on the platform. It wasn’t a formal token sale, but it had the appearance of one because clients who paid the exchange received tokens. 40% of the tokens were used to cover operating costs, team bonuses, and user rewards.
There are 500 million HT tokens overall, of which 100 million are set aside for platform operations and user incentives. A total of 300 million tokens were allocated for users to buy reward cards, and 100 million tokens were set aside as incentives for the Huobi team.
