On 19th March, Huobi announced the selection of Top Network as the first project to be featured in its own “Direct Premium Offering” platform Huobi Prime. Houbi prime is the newest innovation from the Huobi stable. Unlike other exchange launchpads, Huobi Prime will be using a DPO (Direct Premium Offering) model, not the regular IEO(Initial exchange offering model).
Speaking about Huobi Prime Leon Li, Founder and CEO of Huobi Group remarked
“Customer demand and user needs are at the forefront of everything we do here at Huobi. Huobi Prime is very much an extension of that. We’ve designed it from the ground up to be a more innovative, direct, and responsive way to access up and coming new tokens.”
As per Robin Zhu, COO of Huobi Group.
“Powered by Huobi Token, Huobi Prime will keep our brand at the forefront of the ever-changing digital asset marketplace.”
To put in a selling process in a nutshell, Coins listed in Huobi Prime will be having a three-round offering process. Each round, coins will be offered at a discounted price which will keep on increasing for the next round. For eg, a coin may sell for 30 per cent off during the starting round; maybe a 20% discount will be offered for the second round and the in the last round a discount of 10% only( These rates keep on changing project to project ).
All the tokens purchased during the DPO will be immediately available for trade soon after purchase against the Huobi Token. Yup, No waiting for tokens at all.
