Huobi wants to send someone to space for its 8th birthday


Huobi Group, the world’s third-largest cryptocurrency exchange by market capitalization, is marking its eighth birthday in an unusual way.

Likewise, Huobi said on Wednesday that as part of its eighth-anniversary festivities, the firm would host a number of activities. Including giveaways and a chance to win a space ticket.

Huobi will run a contest with the prize of a trip into space for one lucky winner. A free contest is open to all Huobi Global users across the world, with few restrictions.

“There are still health conditions that must be met in order to travel to space,” said Jeff Mei, Huobi Group’s head of global strategy.

Blue Origin & SpaceX are the special flight’s providers

Huobi’s space flight will be provided by a private business, such as Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin or Elon Musk’s SpaceX, according to the company.

“The message we’re trying to express with this contest is that the notion of space is available to everyone,” Mei continued.

Huobi’s anniversary celebrations will run through late November. And will feature the Huobi Summit 2021: Blockchain and Beyond, the company’s annual online forum. On Monday, there will be panel talks with industry professionals and government leaders at the event.

Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States, will be one of the speakers. Many investors have flocked to cryptocurrencies in quest of better payouts, so Greenspan will debate global inflation.

Houbi continues to expand worldwide

Greenspan is a big supporter of Bitcoin (BTC), comparing it to the “continental currency”, which was an early form of money in the United States. In 2019, he again slammed the concept of a central bank digital money.

Du Jun, a co-founder of Huobi Group, stated that the firm would continue to extend its worldwide presence. In order to deliver unique goods and customised services, beginning with Turkey and Brazil. Huobi plans to raise its worldwide workforce from 2,300 to 3,000 personnel by the end of 2021 in order to further its global expansion.

Huobi was forced to leave China in late September when the Chinese government imposed yet another significant cryptocurrency prohibition. Huobi’s operations operating outside of China accounted for roughly 70% of trade volumes and revenues as of mid-October.
