Huobi Cryptocurrency Exchange announced the results of the vote on the further fate of the HT tokens purchased. 80% of users voted for the "burning" of coins.

Previously, each quarter, Huobi used 20% of its revenue to purchase HT on the open market with a view to distributing it further to token holders. According to the exchange's blog, Huobi decided to revise this business model due to numerous requests from users and provided an opportunity for HT owners to decide the fate of the coins.

For three days, 5,010 users cast 72,079,205 votes (one vote was equal to one HT). 19.1% of voters preferred the current distribution model of tokens, and 80.99% chose “burning” tokens.

Within five days after the end of the voting, the Huobi team promised to publish an updated plan to purchase the HT.
