Huobi BTC is an ERC-20 token issued on the Ethereum blockchain. It's designed to track the price of Bitcoin. The HBTC token is 100% backed by BTC, which means it can maintain a 1:1 peg. It is claimed that every HBTC token minted is backed by a BTC coin.

The token allows users to utilise Bitcoin holdings within decentralised protocols that would otherwise be incompatible. DeFi protocols where the token can be currently used include Uniswap, Curve, Balancer, Nest and ForTube.

Huobi BTC (HBTC) is the 68th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $1,641,719,996. The current price of Huobi BTC is $41139, which is -0.767% lower than yesterday.

What to consider when buying Huobi BTC

Huobi BTC strictly tracks the price of Bitcoin, so it’s important to remember that the token will be subject to the same market volatility. Here are some factors to consider before purchasing this token:
  • Bitcoin token on Ethereum: Huobi BTC is a form of wrapped token that aims to allow users to use Bitcoin on Ethereum-based decentralised applications (dapps). It's comparable to other tokens such as Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC), RenBTC and Bitcoin Proxy (BTCpx).
  • Fast trading: Using HBTC can be significantly faster than using BTC. The Bitcoin blockchain processes new transactions approximately every 10 minutes. As HTBC transfers across Ethereum’s blockchain, transactions can be completed in 5 minutes or less.
  • Cheaper trading fees: As HBTC is an ERC-20 token, transaction fees are often less than the equivalent Bitcoin blockchain fees.
  • Huobi suspension: The cryptocurrency exchange suspended mining and other services as a result of China’s recent crackdown on cryptocurrencies. It should be a situation to keep an eye on when dealing with this token.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Huobi BTC, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of HBTC is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision.
