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.

Huobi Group has continued to expand its network of local cryptocurrency exchanges based on the Huobi Cloud platform, launching a trading platform in Argentina.

Huobi Argentina plans to create a local team and fiat gateway to trade or convert Argentine pesos into cryptocurrencies, the company said in a statement.

The payment channel will be launched by mid-October. It is assumed that users of Huobi Argentina will be able to make deposits using bank cards, transfers and through the most common digital payment systems in the region. Currently, you can purchase cryptocurrencies for pesos through the Huobi OTC service.

The opening of the Huobi cryptocurrency exchange in Argentina came at a time when the economy of this second largest country in Latin America was in a deep crisis. This year alone, inflation reached 55%, and President Mauricio Macri recently introduced new restrictions on access to foreign currencies.

According to Carlos Banfi, head of Huobi Argentina, a consensus has already been reached in Argentina on the rejection of local currency and banking services.

The increasing demand for crypto-related products and services makes Argentina a perfect entry point for Huobi to pursue larger projects in promoting cryptocurrency and blockchain to the market. With the launch of Huobi Argentina, we will be able to first offer local user the opportunity to trade with Huobi’s proven security, liquidity, and stability.
