Huobi Token (HT) is a native token of the Huobi crypto exchange, which helps users to pay in the native token, rather than the crypto they are trading with.
In 2013, Huobi was one of the first crypto exchanges to allow investment in initial coin offerings (ICOs) rather than only trading in cryptocurrencies. That means that users can invest early in any crypto projects after going through all the details on the platform.
Before we see what users can do with HT in Klever Wallet, let us first learn more about HT.
Launch of HT coin
In order to provide more facilities to its users, the Huobi crypto exchange launched its own native token in 2018.
Following Binance, HT allows holders to earn rewards, vote in governance, and also gain special access to Huobi events.
Though the Huobi exchange was founded in 2013, it was merely a trading platform for a handful of cryptocurrencies then.
It was once one of the earliest companies to bring a platform where people would get more opportunities to trade in cryptocurrency.
The exchange was founded in China but moved on to Seychelles, which is more crypto-friendly with all regulations.
However, in August 2018, after acquiring a 74% stake in Hong Kong electronics manufacturer Pantronics Holdings, Huobi became a public company and was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
In November 2020, Huobi entered the Malaysian market with its crypto exchange Huobi Labuan and in September 2021, it announced the stopping of service in China due to new regulations.
In May 2022, Huobi announced its entry into the Latin American market with the acquisition of the crypto trading platform, Bitex.
