Huobi is taking one lucky winner to space as it celebrates its eighth anniversary. The exchange will also hold a series of events, promotions and giveaways this month at a time when it has seen great growth and expansion despite leaving its homeland in China.
Huobi is one of the world’s largest and most renowned cryptocurrency exchanges. In the past day, it registered the sixth-highest trading volume in the spot trading market at $5.6 billion. At $7.7 billion, its derivatives trading platform also ranked sixth in the world.
Huobi Group, the parent company to the exchange, will be celebrating this growth as part of its 8th-anniversary celebrations, it revealed in a press release. It will hold a series of events and initiatives in capital cities across the globe, giving away millions of dollars in prizes. The biggest prize will be a ticket to space for one lucky winner.
This year’s celebration will be centered around the theme “infinity.” This theme “reflects the boundlessness in time, imagination and possibilities that the blockchain industry offers. The theme also encapsulates innovation, dynamism and the rapid technical advancements behind cryptocurrencies and the blockchain industry.”
The details on the space travel haven’t been revealed yet, including what space agency the lucky winner will use. It might be through a private firm, maybe even on Elon Musk’s SpaceX. Musk is a big cryptocurrency fan himself and has been a massive DOGE bull for several months now.
Jeff Mei, the global director for strategy at Huobi Group commented:
The message we’re trying to send with this contest is that the concept of space is open to everyone, and this reflects the openness of cryptocurrencies and Huobi’s platform.
To the moon!
The past year has been marked by great growth in the cryptocurrency industry. However, for Huobi, the ban in China was a significant hit as it was one of the most popular platforms in the Asian country. When China reiterated its Bitcoin ban a month back, Huobi had to shut down. It announced in September that it would cease account registration for new users in Mainland China on December 31.
Despite this hit, it has continued to grow. According to Dun Ju, the co-founder of Huobi Group, the exchange’s headcount will hit 3,000 this year, up from 2,300 in January.
Moving forward, we will continue to expand our global footprint to introduce innovative products and localized services. As ever, we remain committed to keeping our users’ assets safe and secure, through stringent compliance with local laws and regulations.
